Welcome to the Edinburgh Wargames Site

Sorry for the erratic postings - I'm still trying to finish a big and demanding book manuscript! Jutland comes out next May.

Early periods Horse & Musket periods "Modern" periods Naval wargaming
As well as writing history books for a living I also wargame with historical miniatures. Yup, thatís little toy soldiers to you!
I play regularly at the wargames club in Edinburgh, but I also spend a lot of time up in Orkney, where there's a more informal wargaming group.
The Journal tells you what we get up to.
Wargame Clubs are dangerous places. You go along with good intentions, then someone talks you into gaming something new. Before you know it youíve got more lead than you know what to do with, and an unpainted lead mountain larger than Mount Rushmore! Let me invite you to tour my lead stash, and who knows .. You might be talked into something new as well!
I keep a regular Journal , and it usually gets updated every week. I've also added other pages about the historical periods I game, the armies and rules systems we use, and some other quirky stuff a related to this strange but enthralling hobby. Please, join me on a tour of my miniature world...
Remember to visit the Journal each week, to see what we get up to!
