Do you miss playing historical mass battles?

Do you enjoy exciting, brutal wargaming?

Have you got a painted army gathering dust?

Then why not reignite your passion for Mass Battle Wargames!

Put aside your warbands and gather the entire might of your army for the epic conflicts that lay ahead. Let your mighty heroes stand once more at the head of their troops before they slip into distant memory. Bring hundreds instead of dozens of warriors to fight epic battles, then tell the exaggerated tales of those battles to any fool that will listen!

Now is the time to put aside your fear, banish all doubts and book your place in the Warhammer Ancient battles, Shieldwall event.

Sounds fun. I miss seeing WAB being played.

It's a lot of fun. Since coming back to WAB1.5 after a few years away from it, I've rediscovered what a great game it is and always was!

An old game system never really dies, it just sits there waiting to be played again! :-)

Come along and have some fun!

I will make every effort to be there.

Four weeks to go until the gaming weekend at Coddington near Newark, UK! I hope those that have booked are preparing their armies in readiness for a weekend of slaughter!

Anyone that's interested in coming to this friendly WAB1.5 gaming event, you're more than welcome to come along for some great wargaming for either a single day or both days.

This is not a tournament, but a rather a great way to play some games against new opponents and armies!

Why not give it a try and join in the fun!
