Nick the Roman Senator The late Nick Slope, immortalised in white metal as a Roman Senator

Wycombe Warband is the wargaming club serving the High Wycombe and Beaconsfield area in south Buckinghamshire. We play all sorts of historical wargames, from ancient to modern periods, in different scales and using a wide variety of rules sets. If you're new to wargaming, but think you might be interested, click on on the left to find out more about what it's all about. If you're thinking about joining us, read on to find out more about the club.

What's Happening Now?

Special Tribute to Nick

Club member Nick Slope, who sadly passed away in December last year, has been immortalised in white metal in the form of a 28mm figure of a Roman Senator, brilliantly sculpted by the talented Paul Hicks and cast by Footsore Miniatures. The figure is so good that we have heard that Footsore Miniatures intend to add it to their forthcoming Gangs of Rome range. Few wargamers ever receive this kind of accolade and if anyone deserved it, it is Nick.

Eye of the Raven Campaign Season 3

Season 3 of the club's Saga: Dark Age Skirmishes campaign has now started in earnest. Basculf the Unwashed has summarised events during Season 2 as only skalds can, and you can read all the continuing stories of each Faction on their own web pages as we continue to monitor their progress through this epic journey.

Blood Bowl

The club's Blood Bowl League is now in full swing and Neil has been blogging games. There's a lot of Blood Bowl banter on the club's Facebook page so do join in if you're interested!

Vanquish 2018

We put on some demonstration games at Vanquish, a local show in May 2017 at Bourne End Community Centre. Thanks from us all to everyone who helped make it happen. It was a very good show and we look forward to participating again in 2018.

What Do We Do?

We try our best to make sure that a range of different games is always available so that people can play something they enjoy. If you have a game and want to play it then there is sure to be someone willing to give it a go or more likely already a fan. We're currently playing a lot of Saga, Flames of War and X-Wing, but we like to play a lot of games and will have a go at almost anything.

Above all, we set out to make our games enjoyable for everyone to play, and encourage people to take part. Whether you're a new recruit or a seasoned veteran, whether you're young or old, you'll always be welcome to join in, so come along. Have fun pushing some figures around and rolling some dice!

The school is easy to find, has plenty of space for games, free car parking and a subsidised bar that is open most evenings.

Where and When Do We Meet?

We meet every week on a Thursday night from 7.00pm onwards, and occasional Saturdays. Making a day of it allows us to host big battle games, play several different games, or run shorter games several times throughout the day. In addition, we also have occasional wargames evenings and other fixtures. See our calendar of events for up to date details of what's planned over the weeks ahead.

We meet at the National Film & Television School, Station Road, Beaconsfield, HP9 1LG. Tel. 01494 671234. If you can't find where we are in the building tell the security guard you're a wargamer and they'll give you directions.

I'm Interested - Who Do I Contact?

You can contact us at or if you want to get more information. You're very welcome to just turn up one night but if you've not been before and intend to use the car park please let us know in advance so that we can make sure a space is available.
