Welcome from Sheffield & Rotherham Wargamers Club (aka The GIMPS)

For the uninformed who may never have heard of the Sheffield and Rotherham Wargamers, we'd better introduce ourselves. We are a tabletop wargames club that doesn't take it's self too seriously and we play a range of games across many different genres, scales, sizes and periods. Games are played with having fun and enjoyment as the main aim and winning as an afterthought (although it's not like we don't try). Have a look around the site, pop across to the forum or even just come down for a chat.  We always welcome new members.

Our Forum

The club has recently seen quite an overhaul, including launching a new forum we use to arrange games, socialise, rub salt into the wounds of fallen victims, and generally wind each other up. You can get there by following this link.

If you have never been down to the club but are thinking of paying a visit, pop along to the forum and say hello. We use the forum to organise games, discuss burning issues and randomly abuse each other.  Even if you can't get a game, feel free to come on down to a club night, see what games are being played and have a chat.


Game nights are every Thursday and we charge £2 per week to cover room hire and terrain buying.  You'll only pay when you play and your first week playing is free!

The Very British Civil War!

Another strong genre at the club is the Very British Civil War (VBCW)...its also attracted a few of the lads from the Barnsley clubs who are friends of the GIMPS...here's a few pics of the games....well worth a look for anybody who wants something a bit close to home:)...the Campaign that Andy Scott is running at the club is situated in the Yorkshire area with quite a few factions fighting for power and to control the area.
