Here’s some shots of a few of our favourite games from last weekend’s Warfare Show in Reading, England.
Earlswood Wargames Club – The Attack on Foy
Chain of Command rules.
Figures by Warlord Games and Artizan Designs. Buildings by Sarrisa and scratch built.
In World War II, Foy was heavily occupied by German forces during the Battle of the Bulge. The U.S. 101st Airborne Division held the Bois Jacques just outside town. After being relieved by General George S. Patton’s U.S. Third Army, the 101st assaulted and retook the town.
If you think you may have seen this action somewhere before, scroll to the bottom to find out where.

The Americans begin their assault.
German snipers await.
Some great use of debris!
Home-made trees using ‘sea-grass’.
The mat is an old white table cloth ‘dressed’ with random paint splodges and painted flock.
Here’s where you will have seen the action before –
Combined Ops – Border Crossing
Home brew rules.
Figures by Warlord Games plus others.
This game was a fictitious clash somewhere on the edge of the Roman Empire. A host of Barbarians tribesmen swarmed against a Roman column which had some naval support up it’s sleeve.
View of the table.
There were some great conversions using Warlord plastic Celt bodies to make ‘ripped’ Roman sailors.
Swordpoint Demo Game
Figures by Gripping Beast
Gripping Beast were busy demoing their brand new Swordpoint “Ancient and Medieval big battle rules”. The figures used were from their own ‘Later Crusades’ range.
And it wouldn’t be a Wargames show without a zombie survival game or two and Warfare had two, presented by the Swindon and District Wargamers and the Skirmish Wargamers. Here’s some shots of both.
