Issue 414 is available TODAY
Miniature Wargames 414 has hit the shops today which marks my (first!) year as Editor. What’s in it this time?
Firstly, there’s Remember the Maine! An exclusive game supplement for Spanish forces in Imperial Skies with a scenario (and with unique downloadable cards). This is based on the 1/1200th model line by Brigade Models and is written by their Tony Francis.
Chris Jarvis presents Frontier Warfare: the second – and concluding – piece on a solo campaign set in the 19th century colonial period featuring on-line downloadable content.
But – after asking about short wargames rules rather than long campaigns – Robert Piepenbrink has given us Creighton Abrams’ War: a very succinct set of rules for just the WW2 micro-armour games (though useable at any scale) if you want to finish them in short order: playability without sacrificing too much detail.
Reinventing an Old Friend is Jon Sutherland’s take on reinvigorating a passion for a set of ‘old school’ ancients rules and making them fit for the 21st century gamer and this issue contains the second of a four part series.
If that’s all a bit too historical, how about a Dragon hunt set in the dark ages (or thereabouts…): Uhtred and the Fire Dragon is Gordon Lawrence’s take on this
In Wargaming My Way Dave Tuck tells an interesting journey through a lifetime of gaming while the Editor takes a trip to the Claymore show.
Also: more scratch building scenery with both Custom House (a 4Ground SF building conversion) and the Wargames Widow makes a Balsa based tower in two scales.
In Send Three And Fourpence columnist Conrad Kinch discusses the problems around juggling children and wargaming, plus an ACW adaption for The Portable Wargame.
We have our review and reporting sections: in Forward Observer and Fantasy Facts and Recce where we review the latest products and reading material plus the Club Directory.
