HISTORICON 2019 Special Guests –
Nikolas Lloyd will be to known to some as 'Lindybeige', for this is the name of his YouTube channel, which started in 2008 and now has over three quarters of a million subscribers. Much of his content deals with military history, as well as the nuts and bolts of how men in various periods fought.
He started wargaming aged six, with Airfix toy soldiers, and made his first film - a super-8 animation - when he was thirteen. He has written several sets of wargame rules, and started many more! At school he studied warfare in the ancient Greek world, and then read archaeology at university while being a keen participant in military re-enactments. He was the organiser and scenario designer of World Crossfire Day and Operation Crossfire, two WW2 tabletop wargaming events played in real-time by many participants around the world. He is currently working on a graphic novel about the Second Punic War, called In Search of Hannibal.
