Welcome!

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.

COVID-19 Latest News [03-04-21]

The NFTS is still not hosting external events and so we continue to be unable to use the club venue until further notice. Club nights are therefore on hold for the foreseeable future. For the most recent updates on the situation please follow us on Facebook.

Tabletop Republic [12-04-21]

Our local hobby store Tabletop Republic has now reopened its doors for retail sales. Tom hopes to make gaming and painting tables available as soon as the indoors rule of six returns (17th May at the earliest). Retail hours have yet to be confirmed but the website is always available for sales, with in-store pickup and paid uk-wide delivery available.

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.

Aces High! [23-03-20]

Our World War 1 air ace campaign, Aces High, using the Wings of Glory rules, has been put on hold very shortly after it started. We will get things moving again as soon as we are able to play together again. In the meantime, you can see what a bally show our aces have put up during the first few sorties by using the link on the left in the main menu.

Saga: Deus Vult [20-03-20]

The Covid situation has meant the club's Deus Vult Saga campaign has been put on hold just before the last Campaign Season. Hopefully, we'll be able to play the last round of games very soon.

Join in the fun!

For more about what's planned for this week, 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 a lot of 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, 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@groups.io or visit our Facebook group if you want to find out more information. When the NFTS is open again you're very welcome to just turn up on club 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.
