Youth Led workshop: History Reborn is an event run by The Flame of the Dragon Miniature Wargaming Society. In this epic event “commanders” will lead there soldiers in a strategic campaign for victory. Through communication, teamwork, and pure wit we will attempt to rewrite history by refighting the legendary siege of Meaux.
In addition, students will be led in a discussion to further stimulate critical thinking around the topic of war vs peace. such as:
- What are the costs versus benefits of war?
- Are there peaceful ways in that countries can resolve problems? If so what would you suggest? If not, why not?
- Is there any way the battle of Meaux could have been avoided?
About the Event
The Program is a 2 day event that consists of three hour classes. The event will consist of painting soldiers then engaging in strategic combat using the newly created soldiers. We will then use strategy and a well developed set of rules to refight the siege of Meaux. The question is if the French or the English will win an epic battle at Meaux.
This is a youth led workshop.
The Flame of The Dragon
The Flame of The Dragon is a relatively new miniature wargaming society that is based in the lower Hudson valley region of Ny. The founders of the club are looking to bring Historical wargaming to the community and get as many people involved as they can. We all started simply playing miniatures games in our friend’s basement. Since then we have expanded to start bringing the club to other places in the community.
