Welcome to The Wargames Website.
The Wargames Website is run by me, Michael and I am aiming for The Wargames Website to offer a combined news feed, forum and gaming resource.
If you spot any issues please let me know as soon as possible by emailing: [email protected]
So what does TWW offer?
- A wargaming site ‘edited’ in UK times which is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
- A wargaming site that is run, edited and moderated by people with a genuine interest in the subjects discussed.
- A wargaming site that makes sharing your love of the hobby easy and fun.
- A wargaming site that makes it easy for traders and manufacturers to get their news out to the wargaming community.
- A wargaming site that is safe to use for all ages of gamer.
- A wargaming site that respects all opinions (even if we do not all agree all of the time).
- A wargaming site that respects all people.
I adhere to Wheaton's Law and I expect you to do the same!
Abusive conduct, discrimination and bullying etc are not allowed. Anyone found to be trolling or purposefully ruining the experience for other users may well be banned.
I would also like to keep swearing to a minimum so check out the forum rules available at the top of each Forum. I encourage expressive writing and some freedom of speech but I would like to ensure the site is family friendly.
So what can you do on the site?
As a Standard Member you can of course read the news, comment on forum topics and news items, start your own topics in the forums, share your latest work and solicit opinion on anything related to gaming,
If you choose to go that one step further you can become a Sponsoring Member of The Wargames Website. A small monthly fee paid will enable me to keep the site running and will grant you access to areas of the site and forum that non sponsoring members can’t access. This includes the Magazine section which is where I will be posting articles and the Private Messaging functionality.
Traders and Manufacturers can join as Trader Members and as such will have access to the super-secret Traders section of the website. This level of membership includes additional forums and the ability to submit news stories.

Plans for the future.
When the site grows I want to hire an editor outside of the UK (perhaps in the USA or Australia) to enable me to offer more round the clock support.
The ability for Traders to directly manage your own advertising by uploading your own banners and accessing your stats in real time.
And more.... I am open to suggestions so let me know what I could do better, more or at all!
So.. that is TWW. I hope you enjoy using the site and please tell your friends all about TWW. (You know, your wargaming friends, not the ones who think the hobby is totally weird. They will not care.)
Please be aware that news articles and forum posts do not necessarily reflect the views and or opinions of The Wargames Website.
