Links: General & Personal Wargaming

General & Personal Games Sites:

Update, 22 May 2011: Work has started on weeding this list. Don’t expect fast progress, but at least it’s something. This time, I went through and tagged all the Geocities URLs as Dead Links. Actual link fixing will be happening as and when I get to it – feel free to contact us if you have suggested links or want to report a new URL for a site!

Because this section has gotten so large, I’m working on some ways of reorganizing it. I don’t want to go to an alphabetical listing, and many of these sites cover a lot of different areas of the wargaming hobby, so I’m going to start organizing by “Mostly…” categories, using the (in my opinion) most prominent, interesting or best area of a site to figure out where it goes. Eg “Mostly Painting”, “Mostly Galleries”, etc etc. I’m still going to wind up with a large list of unclassified sites, but at least a rough subject sort will be possible… I’m always looking for feedback.

So far, I’ve got The Essential Wargaming Sites, General Wargaming Sites, Mostly Painting, Mostly Paper Models, Mostly Scenery & Terrain and Mostly Links.

Mostly Painting:

  • Imerius Wargaming’s Printable Terrain pagehas a good selection of printable terrain, nominally science fiction but a lot of the buildings would work just fine in pulp or 20th C. historical stuff.
  • RPGNow and it’s sister site Wargame Vault are great sources for PDFs of paper terrain of all types, mostly fantasy with some SF and a few historical pieces. Quite a bit of free stuff, the rest ranges from very, very cheap to not badly priced; quality is usually very high.
