The objective markers used in FoW often show creativity and some humour. This would appear to be one of the Secret Weapons of The Luftwaffe! (Right, picture taken at Natcon 2010 in Upper Hutt)


WWII gaming has long been a part of the Club with 1st Edition WRG being the mainstay of the club since the Seventies in 1/72nd scale. WRG 2nd Edition is still being played now and then in 1/72nd.

15mm has taken off at the club with the efforts of Battlefront and Flames of War is played primarily, with Rapid Fire also having some appearances. You'll often see Battlefront staff and playtesters here at the club.
