In 2012 I finally got a place where I could store my collection of Wargames figures and fight battles without having to clear the table by teatime. Since then, the Wargame Shed has hosted games from different periods using all sorts of rules. A hobby started at school in the 1970s is still going strong.
I play with a handful of regular opponents, reinforced from time to time by friends of friends. Like most wargamers, we flit between periods and rules sets, but my personal favourites are Napoleonics, the American Civil War, Eastern Renaissance, Ancients and World War 2.
After a lull of a few years, we have been playing Ancients again, using the exciting and elegant Sword and Spear rules by Polkovnik Publications. So far we have used 25mm figures, which has been a pleasant rediscovery after years of playing with 15s.
In the early 2000s, while living in Poland, I got into the wars of the 17th century, especially the 13 Year War against Muscovy. There were two particularly challenging campaigns in 1660 during this war. I have run wargames representing the main battles fought in Ukraine in that year, using Warlord Games' Pike and Shot, Honour Games' Maurice and el Kraken's Tercios.
