Welcome to MKWS


Welcome to the Milton Keynes Wargames Society web site. This web site is intended to be not only an insight into the activities of MKWS, but also to act as a catalyst to encourage newcomers to take up the hobby either with MKWS or elsewhere.

In general terms most MKWS activity revolves around gaming, using representative miniatures, on either a board or tabletop. The type of game may vary between Historical, Fantasy and Science Fiction. In recent times the variety in gaming has increased significantly. No longer the sole preserve of 15mm 7th Ed. or DBM; MKWS now supports numerous periods, such as Ancients, Renaissance, Napoleonic, Colonial, WW2, Modern, Fantasy, Pirates and Bloodbowl. The list continues to grow only restricted by the imagination and enthusiasm of the members.

Let me help you get the best out of our website. If you are interested in Milton Keynes Wargames Society, then have a look at the About Us and Meetings links. Details of the MKWS annual event Campaign can be found via the Campaign link, and National League details via the National League link.

I hope that you enjoy your visit to our website, and that you will be encouraged to visit the club one evening.
