John Treadaway takes use through some of the key highlights from this issue
Issue 466 of Miniature Wargames we have another cracking issue catering – we hope – for all tastes and styles: from Biggles in the frozen North to the Cherokee nation; from Numenore to the Northwest Frontier; and from Northern France in WWII to Zouaves in Russia we have tabletop gaming with a huge spread of periods and all from points of the compass.
On the cover we feature Red Coat War: It’s The war with those in Red Coats which covers the history of the Anglo Cherokee War of 1758 to 1761. This is part one of a two part piece.
We have Command Decision. Into the Valley with The North West Frontier in 1897. All of this PLUS an extra bonus digital download scenario to accompany it.
In Send Three and Fourpence Conrad Kinch gives us Those who will still be on their feet: a scenario for the popular rule set The Men who would be Kings.
In Vertfeuville Farm: we have a WWII game featuring an ‘O’ Group Encounter with the rules author and publisher plus – in The Labyrinth Of Terror: there’s a ‘Biggles’ style adventure in the frozen north with moving scenery!
For Tolkien fans we have Men of the West: Playing – and painting – a book accurate Numenorean Army using Oathmark; plus why don’t you try a Scratch Build of a wooden store house?
In Mobile Warfare: The Editor takes a trip to a transient new venue for Warfare 2021; and – finally – we have the review sections with a bumper crop of Defence in Depth for Figures and rules, Quartermaster for scenery and accessories plus we have Forward Observer for news and Recce for insightful book reviews.
