The Rotorua Irregulars are a sub-group of the Rotorua Wargames Club. We are the historical players who seldom seem to find the time to organise ourselves to get down to the games day held in town twice a month. As such, we try to meet monthly at John’s house when as many members as possible are available. This way, hopefully, we see a bit more regular gaming.
The core members are: John Norton, Chris Shorthall, Nathan Ward, Terry Oldham and Paul Whittaker. We are open to any other gamers to join in, there are no fees or membership rosters. Just drop us a line and come along and play.
First and foremost we play Flames of War – 15mm World War Two. The club has armies for all of the major nations and can provide everything someone needs if they wish to come and play.
We also have armies for:15mm Napoleonics (French, British, Austrian, Russian, Saxon, Polish), 15mm Ancients (Greeks,Persians, Gauls, Romans) 15mm Renaissance (Poles, Swedes), 28mm English Civil War, 28mm Vikings, 28mm Arthurian, 15mm Marlburians, 15mm Yom Kippur War (Israeli, Egyptian), 28mm World War One (British and German) and Two (German, US and Soviet), 28mm Star Wars (Clone Wars), 15mm Afghanistan (British and Taliban), 28mm NZ Wars, 15mm American Civil War.
In the works with different club members are 15mm American War of Independence armies, Seven Years War armies, and World War Two Japanese and 28mm Napoleonics.
