League of Historical Wargamers.

Top Left

The League was formed by a group of friends living in the south of England. Its purpose is to organise participation and demonstration games at wargames shows throughout the year with the aim of having as much FUN as possible. As is implied by the name, we will be playing games strictly with a historical theme. We also want to bring these display games back to grass roots and present games that any wargamer could do in their own home or club, rather than the museum standard games that are becoming all too prevalent at shows nowadays.

The photo at the top shows some of the members at a game at Warfare in 2011. Why the Darlek thought it was a member we didn't want to ask!
