War gaming on the Central Coast
This is a gaming group based at the Good Games Gosford store in the Gosford CBD. Gaming is Thursday afternoon/evening and Saturday. The main game system played is Warhammer 40K, but Star Wars X-Wing is regularly played. The store also has other miniature gaming including Flames of War, card gaming and RPGs.
This group is based at the Ourimbah RSL and meets on the 4th Sunday of each month. It was founded in 2011 by a group of historical gamers. Back in 2011 Field of Glory and Flames of War were our two favourite rulesets. Over 2015 - 2016 the main rulesets played were Sword and Spear (Ancients 15mm), Modern Spearhead (Modern 6mm), Chain of Command (WW2 20mm), SAGA (Dark Ages 28mm), Flames of War (WW2 15mm), Art de la Guerre (Ancients 15mm) and Fire n Fury (ACW 15mm).
The club plays Ancients wargames in 15mm using various rules. These include Sword and Spear, Art de la Guerre and Field of Glory.

There is still a modelling club based at Gosford Hobbies that focuses on historical models. As of 2011 the modelling club had started playing 1/72 scale WWII games and as of 2014 they were also playing 1/72 scale Napoleonics using the Black Powder ruleset..
Gosford Gamers Guild
The Gosford Gamers Guild was organised and hosted by Gosford Hobbies and focused on Games Workshop games. The group ran for 6 years from 2004 to 2009. After Gosford Hobbies stopped running games most of the players moved to the Central Coast Corsairs and/or Gosford Team Pirate.
One of the main features of the
Gosford Gamers Guild was that
gaming was held outside for much of the life of the group. Playing outside
in the fresh air on a sunny afternoon under the shade of the gum trees was a
Other features of the group was the Gosford Shield, the largest one day
Warhammer 40K tournament in NSW, and the Blitzkrieg interclub events which
attracted up to 30 players at its peak.
Central Coast Corsairs
Central Coast Corsairs was a war gaming group on the northern end of the Central Coast that met at the Tuggerah Community Hall. A wide variety of gaming systems were played including Blood Bowl (a very active group), Warhammer 40K, Warhammer Fantasy and Flames of War.
The Central Coast Corsairs was wound up in 2010 due to problems with
affordability of insurance.
Denizens of the Coast
Denizens of the Coast was best known for Warhammer Fantasy, and for running events such as Ye Olde Worlde Challenge interclub events and also running tournaments in Sydney.
Denizens of the Coast stopped running in 2003 or 2004.
This shop is downstairs at the river end of London Court. Probably the best shop I have found for 40K, WFB, Flames of War and other games.
