Welcome to the North Shore Wargames Club. The NSWC is located on the sunny North Shore in Auckland, New Zealand. We play wargames with military miniatures and game in most periods. All game systems, scales, and periods are welcome, although most of our gaming is Ancients (DBMM and Field of Glory), Renaissance (DBR), Napoleonics (Field of Glory), WWII (Flames of War), and Fantasy (Kings of War).
The NSWC meets on the 2nd, 4th and 5th Sunday of each month at the Forrest Hill Scout Hall in Becroft Park on Becroft Drive, Forrest Hill.
