Introduced to model soldiers, Airfix kits and a toy fort when he was a small boy, Henry Hyde has been playing wargames ever since, his interests ranging throughout the annals of history.
Henry burst onto the wargames scene in 2006 with his own Battlegames magazine. He went on to edit the merged Miniature Wargames with Battlegames before leaving to pursue other publishing, writing and design interests in 2016, including his Battlegames Patreon site for which he creates podcasts, videos and blog posts. He is the author of the acclaimed The Wargaming Compendium published by Pen & Sword in 2013, which achieved best-selling status on four of Amazon’s sites in both hardback and as an ebook.
An honours graduate in European History and languages from Sussex University, Henry’s interest in wargaming is firmly rooted in a passion for history. He has a special love of campaigns, classical ancient Greece and Persia, the battles and sieges of the eighteenth century and early WWII armour. He also dabbles in skirmish, naval and aerial wargaming and confesses to a lively interest in fantasy and science fiction.
As well as wargaming, Henry is extremely active online and is often found posting on social media. He enjoys writing fiction, photography, painting, music, cooking and a surprising amount of TV and films! He lives in the beautiful county of East Sussex on the south coast of England.
