Finchley Wargaming Club

The Finchley Wargaming Club is a historical miniatures wargames group based in Finchley Central, London, N3, UK. When the pandemic allows we meet on Tuesday evening at a private residence, play pretty much all periods and quite a variety of gaming systems. If you’re interested in meeting up then contact me.

To give you a flavour of our interests, both wargaming and military history . . .



Crossfire has been the most played set of rules within the club for the last decade. World War II of course.
