The tournament pack has now been confirmed for the Clash at Kingston 7 Kings of War tournament. Please note that all slots for this tournament have now been reserved but people are welcome to come in on the day to watch the event and join the festivities.

Saturday 9th April 10:00-10:20 registration

Kingston upon Hull – Humberside Wargames Society, Saville Court on Saville Street, HU1 3EE.

£5 per player – no prizes are planned, but there maybe the odd one or two that appear.

1.5 hour for leisurely lunch (Wetherspoons in 5min walking distance). No dinner available at venue but plenty of places within a few yards of the venue. Main aim is to keep it cheap. 12 players maximum

3 games at 1995 points using Clash of Kings 2022, 50mins chess clocks per player

Clash at Kingston uses a 5/10/15 w/d/l system with up to 5 additional points available for completing scenario objectives. Extra posts are available for routing enemy units too.

No paint requirement. Models need to be assembled, on appropriate bases and meet MMC. The idea is to promote list building experimentation and to get people playing, but please don’t take the piss.

Bring your own booze!!! Feel free to have a tipple whilst playing. There’s often those who are staying over and wanna have dins and drinks out in Hull afterwards.

Clash At Kingston: Down n Dirty 2

King Of War: Clash of Kings 2022 singles tournament

In January we were pleased to host a Clash at Kingston Kings of war tournament, it was a roaring success and sold out instantly. We are now happy to say that on the 9th April “Down n Dirty” is returning to Humberside Wargames Society.

Once again the event is kindly being organised by Chris Christophison ( Facebook : A tale of some gamer ). He put together some beautiful tables last tournament and we are excited to see what he has in store for players this time round. More details about his events can be found on the clash at kingston facebook events page

The event is a 1995pt, 3 round tournament using the latest Kings of War suppliment, Clash of Kings 2022. Keeping things simple entrance is once again only £5 getting you a full day of fun over 3 rounds. No food or drink is being supplied by us, but you are welcome to bring your own. Alcohol is accepted within the venue.

There is no parking availble at the venue as such players are reliant on public car parks. If you want more details about parking local to the club please drop us a message.

The basic schedule of the event is below (on phones this is best viewed in landscape). If you don’t feel up to playing please feel free to pop along to watch and chat free of charge. More details will follow closer to the date.

Kings of War Escalation league Month 1 Pledges

With the start of October we see the commencement of the Kings of war Escalation league. As such we can now announce the bonus challenge point and the scenario.

We currently have 8 army pledges in for the escalation league, these can be seen at the bottom of this post. If you haven’t provided your pledge for this month yet, don’t worry you are welcome to join at any point within the month. Simply let us know your pledge either here, on our Facebook group or through our discord server.

We look forward to seeing your progress to meet your

Bonus Challenge – Freehand

You can choose to paint an epic work of art on one of your models, be it the Mona Lisa on a cloak or landscape on a shield, or if like me you have shaky hands you could choose to paint some lines trimming a tunic or perhaps some dodgy looking checks around the trim of a shield. If there’s no transfers or trickery and you did it with a brush its all good, have that additional hobby point!

The Scenario – Kill!

Your scouting force spotted this isolated inn and has decided to ransack a building for the supplies it contains, be it food and drink, potential slaves or recruits. However, they encounter the opponents scouting force who has the same idea.

The initial 500 point “skirmish” game will be played on a 3 foot wide x 4 foot deep table, with a 14 inch deep deployment area, 6 inches from each table edge. This is so the forces can get to grips earlier, as befitting a small game. There should be a small building on the centre line of the game area no larger than 7 inches square. This is impassable terrain and is height level 4 and is an isolated coaching inn.
