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.

He has now made 20 reasonably large ploughed fields using brown corduroy fabric as his base material.
Following a challenge on the Oldhammer Facebook group, axiom attempted to recreate one of his favourite GW artists, Tony Hough, illustrations into miniature form.
