IAN'S FIGURE WARGAMING WEB PAGE

Wargaming, what is it ?

    "For centuries battles with model soldiers have been fought by Kings and generals for military purposes, and for pleasure by boys from nine to ninety years of age.  The model soldier possess unlimited courage on the Wargames table and, ably led by an amateur General with realistic set of rules, he can win great victories or be magnificent in defeat.
    As a means of military training, war games have long ago proved their worth, but it is a form of skilful relaxation that the subject is considered here.  Grand strategy can be practiced on maps, complicated manoeuvres attempted on the realistic table-top battlefield, and colourful armies of miniature soldiers can be made to fire accurately, attack forcibly in flank or rear and hold out grimly against vastly superior numbers.
    Sometimes called 'Chess with a thousand pieces', wargames can be simple affairs played on the dining room table, or highly complicated battles involving two thousand or more troops fighting to realistic rules on large tables with hills, valleys, rivers, woods, villages and even towns with streets, factories and stations."
