to report that well known wargamer and former of Practical Wargamer Stuart Asquith passed away last night.

Many remember his delight at encouraging newcomers into the hobby with simple rules and a fun attitude.

Stuart Asquith joined Phil Olley, John Preece, , S Grant and me to re- the battle of Mollwitz that featured in the 1971 “The ” by the late Charles Grant.

I know that Stuart was really chuffed to participate in this game at Partizan 2007.

Please say a prayer for his grieving and loved ones as read these tributes :

Stuart kept the flame burning during the interregnum between the Featherstone/Grant/Wise era and the rise of MW/WI – for that I am eternally grateful as without his , I well have moved away from miniature wargaming totally in favour of boardgames and RPGs.
