Very nice to meet fellow enthusiasts down in Bristol at the weekend, exhibiting with The History of Wargaming Project.


Figures originally from the collections of Deryck Guyler, Tony Bath and Phil Barker, refurbished by Phil Steele.


… and played to the version of Tony's game published by Don Featherstone in War Games.


More pictures on the Shows North blog, of course …

We stand on the shoulders of giants.

Very skinny giants it turns out.

Any update on the unpublished Tony Bath Wargamer's Guide to Hyboria?

We need to keep nagging John … he told me at the weekend he now has a lot of TB material ready (just need to devote some time to it) …

Corrugated cardboard bases painted green. Love it!.

I love seeing these figures in action. I've been a fan of Tony Bath's Hyboria campaign since reading his articles in Military Modelling back in the 70s.

On a side note, when you are using flats you can fit an awful lot of elephants into a very narrow space …

It was a simpler time and people had to make do with limited resources for gaming. That takes me back to my youth when I first got a copy of Don Featherstone's "War Games" willed to me by a senior at my high school.

Great stuff! The old school look from back in the day when it was just a game! Well done!

Ah, I was introduced to Tony Bath, flats, and wargaming with actual rules (as opposed to Older Brother "explaining" how the game was to be played) via Donald Featherstone's War Games back in the early 1960's. My younger brother and I have been wargaming against each other for some 40+ years because of all of that.
