Lincombe Barn Wargames Society is the oldest wargaming club in Bristol. We are a friendly club that meets every week on Sunday afternoon in North Bristol. The club has a tradition of being involved in the development of innovation in wargaming. Projects that the club has been involved in over the years include Lionel Tarr’s WWII rules (the first hobby modern wargaming rules as published by Donald Featherstone in War Games), Skirmish Wargames, Alien Squad Leader and the History of Wargaming Project. It was the first club to run a table top sale exclusively devoted to wargaming.

We assist the Avon branch of the IPMS with their huge annual Modelling and Wargaming show held in Thornbury Leisure Centre in August. For more details see the show webpage:
