Glasgow and District Wargaming Society was founded in 1969 and we are one of the oldest clubs in continuous operation.
We meet fortnightly on Sundays from 12:30pm to 5:30pm in the Scout hall, Shawmoss Road, Crossmyloof, Glasgow G41 4AD. We also arrange weekend meetings over Saturday and Sunday for that big game.
We have around 40 members and space for all! We have our own tables and terrain and can cater for all periods from biblical to the future.
Annual subscription is £45 and membership attracts discounts from local traders including Static Games.
There are a range of annual competitions and campaigns that provide an opportunity for new members to get involved including FoG, Saga and FoGR.
Members wargame a wide variety of periods and rules. On a typical Sunday you will find ancient and medieval battles using FoG, SAGA, Lion Rampant or Hail Caesar, Renaissance with FoGR, Napoleonic and 19th Century conflicts using Black Powder and WW2 using Command Decision or Bolt Action rules.
The club runs several tournaments and campaigns that are a good way to introduce new members to the society. We also participate in competitions across the UK and try to support all the Scottish wargame shows.
