Queen Victoria’s Little Wars By Byron Farwell

This is a book that should be on every Colonial Wargamers’ bookshelf. It is a brilliant study of the conflicts and personalities involved in a continuous series of wars for the British Empire between 1837 and 1901. It is by no means an exhaustive study of the period, but offers the reader a good slice of the times. If you don’t already play colonial miniature wargames, this book will make you want to.

Queen Victoria’s Little Wars

Game of Victorian Manners

Think you know how to be a victorian? Then try this interactive game in which you try to negotiate your way through the tricky world of Victorian manners. Its wierdly fun.

I would never have made it in the Victorian world.

Soldiers of the Queen British Military Photograph Site

The Soldiers of the Queen site is a great resource for anyone who games with Victorian Era miniature soldiers. The site is stuffed full of photographs from the era. A must see.

Aeronef Logs

Similar in spirit to the late, lamented Space:1889 cloudships rules, Aeronef is about Victorian era armored flying gunships. There are some outstanding ships’ logs for the game here.

Victorian Gentlemen’s Clubs

For the Victorian and Colonial miniature wargamer, here is a site with names of, and information about 19th Century Gentlemen’s clubs. Another site about these exclusive clubs is here.
