Wargaming The Age of the Anglo-Saxons at Sutton Hoo

 Great privilege to be organising the second Wargaming the Age of the Anglo-Saxons event at Sutton Hoo this summer. Where better to game early Saxon battles than at the UK's most iconic Anglo-Saxon site? 

Participation games and a figure-painting table (figs courtesy of the wonderful Gripping Beast miniatures) with a view to introducing new players to the hobby as well as providing experienced gamers with some fun in wonderful surroundings. 

Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th July 2024. Free with site admission.

Captain Josiah C Ford, Texas Rangers

 The second Ranger for my What a Cowboy Texas Ranger posse, circa 1858. Painted this guy with an ex-army background and deliberately set out to make the colours richer and more vibrant to make him stand out as posse leader. Really pleased with the effect!

Texas Rangers for What A Cowboy

First model complete for my 1858 Texas Ranger patrol for What A Cowboy. Foundry model painted in my usual 'dip and highlight' style. He was fun to paint! 

More to come soon!

Wargaming the Age of the Anglo-Saxons at Sutton Hoo.

On Sunday 30.07.23 National Trust at Sutton Hoo are presenting ‘Wargaming the Age of the Anglo-Saxons.’ The event is free with general site admission and features James Morris and chums leading participation games of the Battle of the River Idle (616) and the Battle of Degsastan (603) throughout the day.

Visitors will also be able to speed paint a free plastic Anglo-Saxon warrior courtesy of Gripping Beast Miniatures. 

With Anglo-Saxon re-enactment on-site on the day (the Sae Wylfings group) this really is the perfect Dark Ages day out!
