  Club Articles     What is Wargaming?






It is customary for every website to include a list of links to related sites (thus providing visitors with a quick getaway). The following wargames related websites can be accessed by clicking on the link. Generally, only the acme of sites are included - though these all embrace links to other, more esoteric, corners of the Web - or those of relevance to games played by members of the Cheltenham Wargaming Association.


British Historical Games Society

A little bland (note the 'New Labour' style use of Historical Games rather than Wargames) but still a useful port-of-call for who, what & where. You can register on a 'Find A Wargames Opponent' database for free.



Society Of Ancients

Scholastic site dedicated to all things ancient. Very respected but occasionally portentous.



Society Of 20th Century Wargamers

Proper treatment for what we might term 'modern' wargaming.



DBA Online

If you're new to wargames try out this online ancient wargames taster.



Warlord Games

The new home for the ex- Warhammer Historical rules and their successors (including Bolt Action WW2 for big toys).



Flames of War

Official site for the mighty Battlefront WWII rules. Extremely comprehensive coverage of all things Flames Of War, new articles added every week.



Nihon Kaigan

Comprehensive site dedicated to the Imperial Japanese Navy. Excellent technical details.



The Miniatures Page

If you enjoy posting your bon mots to the world, try out the TMP message boards.



Fighting 15s

A good place to get stuff, especially very small stuff. Run by the estimable Ian.



Osprey Books

A vast selection of great value books. From Alexander to Zosimus, Alamein to Zurich, and for all things relating to battles, uniforms, armies and weapons. The site includes some excellent articles by Osprey authors.
