Cotswold Wargames Day 2021

This Sunday we went on tour to Northleach for the 2021 Cotswold wargames day organised by Keith Flint.  KEITH'S WARGAMING BLOG: Cotswold Wargaming Day - Full Story and Pictures (keefsblog.blogspot.com)

Our decision to lay on a game was a little last minute so we mustered all our Renaissance gear something approximating the Siege of Vienna. 

There was was some 25mm ancients featuring Republican Romans vs assorted Celts and Latins 

A game of Sharpe Practice set in the French-Indian wars and featuring some hand sculped figures from Big Dave

A very large Napoleonic game (French vs Prussians) with big units of 36figs each


A 20mm ACW game with an attack on a train depot

WWII squad-level action 

Some 1960s armour involving the Israelis vs Egyptians (I think)

And finally some micro gaming in 6mm on a dining room sized table

All in all a nice introduction back into the show scene. The lack of traders / B&B meant a nice focus on wandering about and chatting to the other gamers. The main topic - what type of gaming mat do you use as no two were the same!

  1. I was there as a visitor for around 90 minutes and enjoyed all of the tables. I was struck by how friendly everyone was. I agree that the lack of trade allowed a better focus on the game tables.
