"They are in front of us, behind us, and we are flanked on both sides by an enemy that outnumbers us 29:1. They can't get away from us now!" - Lewis B. Chesty Puller, USMC

Wycombe Warband is the wargaming club serving the High Wycombe and Beaconsfield area in south Buckinghamshire. We play all sorts of wargames, from ancient to modern, historical and fantasy, in different scales and using a wide variety of rules sets. Normally, we meet weekly evey Thursday at the NFTS, Beaconsfield (map below), although for the time being because of Covid restrictions this is currently on hold.

If you're new to wargaming, and 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.

The club's Deus Vult Saga campaign has now ended. Congratulations (and all kneel before) Yaroslav the Wise (Jon) who is declared King of all the land. For details of the campaign take a look at our Deus Vult pages.

Aces High! [04-06-20]

Chocks away, chaps! Our World War 1 air ace campaign, Aces High, using the Wings of Glory rules, has kicked off again. Find out what a bally show our aces are putting up above the trenches by using the link on the left in the main menu.

Saga: Punic Wars [03-04-21]

Despite the current restrictions, we've started a new Saga campaign in the Age of Hannibal universe. Games are being played using Tabletop Simulator for the time being. The campaign uses rules modified from our previous Deus Vult and Eye of the Raven campaigns. Use the link in the menu on the left to find out the latest news.

Join in the fun!

Now that the club has reopened, if you wish to attend please don't just turn up! For the time being while we don't have a better booking system please let us know via email or Facebook first and make sure that Jon has booked your game in. When attending, please follow our COVID rules:

For more about the club, topics we're currently discussing, and general banter take a look at our email list at Wycombe Warband on io groups, and join us if you would like.

We have an active group on Facebook so you can also catch up with us there as well, as well as various WhatsApp groups.

To find out what club members have been up to recently, see The Front Line for our latest blog posts.

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 quite a lot of Saga, but we like to play many different 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, have fun pushing 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. Before you turn up, please make sure you are booked in though as attendance is currently limited because of Coronavirus restrictions.

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've booked a game but you can't find where we are in the building tell the security guard you're a wargamer and they'll give you directions.
