Essex Warriors at Salute 2017

The Essex Warriors ‘Battle of Prague’ game at Salute was very well received with loads of pictures and even videos taken so watch out for coverage online and in the wargaming press.

Many thanks to Rafael for organising the game and to Allan, Jason, Peter G & Les for their help in playing the game and talking to spectators all day. Also thanks to the other Warriors who dropped in on the day to lend their  support and give the main team a break.

We certainly reached a world wide audience this year with two residents of Prague who are actually re-fighting the battle on the battlefield in a couple of weeks time being very impressed. We also had visitors from Australia, Spain, USA, Colombia, France and the Netherlands to name but a few.

Essex Warriors at SELWG

Many thanks to Les, Richard and Andrew for organising the game, figures and terrain for SELWG this year. Also thanks to Peter, Jason and Richard for their help running the game on the day.

The game  was well received and everyone had a good time.

Open Day Thanks

Many thanks to everyone who helped out at the Open Day this year. We would particularly like to thank Joyce, Bob and Peter Latter for their help with the canteen and those members who brought home made treats including Sue and Andrew. Thanks also to Tim, Peter Kemp and Dave for their sterling work on the Bring and Buy.

We also had some great games that showcased the club and what we can do.

Apologies if I have missed anyone out, but my thanks to all involved

Wagram Mega Game 3rd April 2016

Wagram offers a massive Napoleonic battle in 15mm and will be our first Mega Game of the year on 3rd April. Please contact Les Mills if you are interested in playing; there are lots of roles available. The original battle was fought on 5th and 6th July 1809 and saw Napoleon take on Arch Duke Charles in a climactic battle which was a close run thing.

Due to the large size of the game there will be limited space for other games on the day ( We reckon around five other spaces for two tables). Colin has kindly offered to monitor this so please contact him in advance to make sure there is room for your game. We are trying to avoid anyone turning up for a game and being disappointed by the lack of space.

Thank you
