EVENT CANCELLATIONS: Please note that most Events on our Wargamer Collection Directory have either been cancelled or are likely to be cancelled soon due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We will continue to publish Events on our website to allow Wargamers to plan their attendance at future events. Most Wargaming Events are run on an annual cycle – so any event due in the next few months is likely to occur in the same month in 2021. For the latest news on each Event, please click through from our Directory record to the Event organiser’s website.

What would you do if you had an old Royal Navy ship that had lay dormant for years with missing guns, poor paintwork, masts broken off and a ship’s wheel out of scale? MGB considered converting his hulk into a prison vessel but changed his mind at the last minute and went to work on it. Finally, it was ready to have the RN Ensign added.
According to Roly in New Zealand, the award for the dullest attire should go to the Hanoverian Freytag Jägers. They wore plain green coats, with green turn-backs and cuffs with the only hint of ‘colour’ being a single white strap on the left shoulder. They also had buff breeches and gaiters and plain hats with no trim and just a green cockade. It didn’t stop Roly painting them though. . .
