UNCLE DUKE SEIFRIED
AUGUST 19th 1935 – SEPTEMBER 29TH 2018
It was with great sadness that, just before going to press with this issue of Wargames Illustrated, we learnt of the death of Bruce Seifried.
Affectionately known as Duke, or ‘Uncle Duke’ within the hobby, he was a giant of the miniature gaming world and one of the pioneers of the American scene. A charter member of the HMGS Legion of Honor, as well as a Scruby award winner, Duke was also in the Game Manufacturers Association (GAMA) Hall of Fame.
On the US convention circuit Duke’s gaming ‘Extravaganzas’ became the main attraction at any show he attended, and we were also proud to feature his games in the pages of Wargames Illustrated on many occasions.

In celebration of just some of Uncle Duke’s wargaming Extravaganzas and achievements we have pulled several of our articles featuring his work from The Vault and made them available for everyone to view here.
