Publishers of 1938 A Very British Civil War
Welcome to my website. I have been involved with wargaming as a hobby for over 30 years and am in the fortunate position of now combining my work and leisure interests. Since 2004 I have been providing a small range of products for wargamers, the range now includes painted figures, vehicles,model flags and a series of books
Since developing the world of 1938 A very British Civil War with Mort and Rob in 2009, that has been my main focus of work, More recently with the help of my good friend, the excellent wargaming illustrator Pete Barfield we have started to redesign our range of wargaming flags,now printing them on cotton. Painting wise i do occassional commissions but sell most of my stuff on this site or via ebay. My painting interests at the moment are 1938, Ancients, and late 17th/early 18th century
I continue to alternate between painting and writing , as well as attending a number of shows
Thanks for visiting

Two weekends on the road. great game by Mick and Tym at Exeter last week which got a well earned second place in show. This week was our turn, Colin from Edinburgh plus the Dumfries crew put on the battle for Elgin, which took the runner up prize- photos to follow
The GWP lads from Manchester also did a Jacobite game and were selling some excellent Shotguns for 28mm they have had sculptured, anybody interested in purchasing any drop us a line
Should also mention colonel Bills are doing a range of 28mm inter war weapons including MP28s and Lewis guns
First weekend in June we are off to Glasgow, then Scarborough at the end of the month
Sorry , this is late coming out, its actually grown a lot in writing! We hope this will be a very useful book not only for Albion in Peril but VBCW campaigns in general. We are hoping to include a full set of county maps at least for England, showing major towns, roads etc. There will also be an assesement of what the factions have so far achieved and frontlines as of 1st Jan 1939. We have also included one version of possible events in Europe during 1938 which puts the VBCW in a bigger context. We are expecting this one to run over the usual 24 pages but it should still be at the normal price.Hopefully it will be out late May early June
Congratulations to Tim and the team from the VBCW Forum on winning 'Best Presentation Game' at Salute yesterday for their King's Speech VBCW game. A grand achievement Gentlemen

Page 12 Halfway down the right hand column you will see a piece of text beginning "Placed in contact with the Target Vehicle.......", and ending ".........must roll on the Vehicle Damage Chart."
This entire piece of text is the continuation of the Sticky Bomb rule that starts at the top of the left hand column.
Sorry for that.
