"Hard pressed on my right. My center is yielding. Impossible to maneuver. Situation excellent. I am attacking." - Ferdinand Foch, at the Battle of the Marne


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.

Nick Slope

It is with great sadness that we report the death of long-standing club member Nick Slope, from a sudden heart attack in December. We are all privileged to have known Nick. An archaeologist and historian, a former president of the Nelson Society and an honorary Don Cossack, Nick was also a great wargamer, teacher and friend. Always smiling, welcoming, tolerant and understanding, Nick was a role model for us all and will be missed by everyone at the club.

Blood Bowl League

Neil is keen to start up a Blood Bowl league so please let him know if you're interested in playing. We will post the standings here for everyone to see!

The Saga of Sagas Ends...

Our old Saga dark age campaign has come to a close. Congratulations to Robert Eponge and his cheesy Bretons for the win. You can read a few of the battle reports here. Enjoy!

...And Eye of the Raven Begins

And so we enter a new age, and our long-awaited Saga campaign, which we have called Eye of the Raven, is about to begin. Eleven players will fight it out over six campaign turns seeking wealth, land and renown in their quest for ultimate power. We've set up a special series of web pages to monitor their progress through this epic journey.

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 wycombewarband@yahoogroups.co.uk or HQ@wycombewarband.org 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.
