The Wargames Website



I read a review of a new UK based forum for wargaming in Miniature Wargames  today and thought I'd take a closer look. I've become increasingly disinterested in the bollocks that permeates TMP, with the inevitable trawl through pointless or facile threads to get to the interesting content.

As a result, I'm pleased to see an alternative, that isn't just about sci-fi or fantasy gaming but genuinely reflects the full diversity and range of the hobby, which is something that TMP does actually deliver once you wade through the crap.

A quick glance at the homepage and I'm feeling a warm glow of encouragement, with plenty of threads to explore and some interesting content to unwrap. I'm pretty sure it will live up to my expectations and wish the team behind the Wargames Website every success.

Here's a link if you, like me, fancy something a bit different:

  3. The Lead Adventure Forum is also a pretty good forum. I started to spend time there when I got sick of the the troublemakers on TMP.

  5. Ditto on the website. As much as I like TMP, I get tired of all the junk that isn't related to gaming,and that there are too many egos that seem to dominate many of the discussions.

  6. Thanks everyone.

    We aim to offer a great community resource for all in the hobby.
    No politics, no discrimination, just enjoying the hobby for its own sake, it is after all a great hobby!


    Please tell your friends about it, the more people come the better it will be.
