The Wargamer's Lament by Forlorn Hope.

Today we proudly present the release of our first (and very likely only) song produced by WSS Music Ltd: The Wargamer's Lament sung by the team of the WSS Podcast, ably assisted and led by Murray Dahm, the assistant editor of Ancient Warfare magazine. With ears and eyes properly prepared, press play below.

The song is set to The Wellerman, and the lyrics (by our designer, Christy Beall) are below. Feel free to sing along!

There once was a man, a Guy you’d say, 

who games of war would often play.

The scale was small but armies large and

oh how they would grow, huh!

 

Soon may the mailman come to bring more figures, and then some.

One day when the basin’ is done, we’ll take our leave and go

 

A gamer’s life is an awful curse,

the need for more grows worse and worse

A rule book here, a mini there, 

the end you’ll never know, huh!

 

Soon may the mailman come to bring more figures, and then some.

One day when the basin’ is done, we’ll take our leave and go

 

The parcels came both night and day

Warlord, Perry, 40k?

The lead piled up, more plans were made

but little could he show, huh!

 

Soon may the mailman come to bring more figures, and then some.

One day when the basin’ is done, we’ll take our leave and go

 

The years have past, our Guy’s grown old

Still out there painting, so I’m told

No end’s in sight, he cannot die

Till his mountain’s been brought low, huh!

 

Soon may the mailman come to bring more figures, and then some.

One day when the basin’ is done, we’ll take our leave and go
