About Me

Do we have to talk about the real world? Recently retired from the Royal Navy after 22 years service. Currently working in the University sector in the planning and support of International Education. So why 'Sparker'? Sparker is the nickname for members of the Royal Navy's Radio Operator trade group of which I was a proud member prior to being commissioned from the ranks. OK the important stuff Primarily into Napoleonics and ACW, but with WW2 a strong second, and also dabble in Ancients and Modern. Mainly play with a small band of mates based in and around Wollongong, the Southern Highlands and SW Sydney at my place, but often to be found lurking at my LFGS, the Hall of Heroes Campbelltown, usually with a bowl of chips or sausage roll to hand…. Also occasionaly by invitation at the Australian Centre for Wargaming Excellence at the Goulburn Valiant Stormers…. I'm particularly into occasional large scale games with several players to a side, and have been commemorating the Bicenntennials of the large Napoleonic battles accordingly… Blog here: sparkerswargames.blogspot.com

Games Played

Black Powder Napoleonics and ACW, with aspirations to dabble in SYW…Am also backwards compatible for Gen De Bde and Guns at Gettysburg. Flames of War, in both 15mm and 20mm. Hail Caesar and Warmaster Ancients, Trafalgar, Force on Force.
