Wargamers on Video



Wargames from Jessica Bishopp on Vimeo.


Not sure what the point the film maker is trying to make about the link between the effect on soldiers of combat experience and historical wargaming using figures, but there's some nice footage of a game in progress with lovely painted figures and scenery.

  1. Interesting little movie - the makers are obviously making the point that warfare is dangerous and scary. Definitely something that wouldn't have occurred to us otherwise. I confess that wargames are scary enough for me, anyway. A friend suggests that the guy describing the wargame doesn't really speak like that - it took weeks with a dialect coach to get him to sound authentic. I don't accept this - I think it's disrespectful.

    Thanks for sharing.

  2. A bit 'sillius sodus' at times but always good to see an actual game in progress with big children having fun :-)
