A simple campaign system, two sets of rules, and an interview of one of the less well-known but very influential early British wargamers ... what more could one ask for for only £4.25?


  1. A must buy magazine these days. I collected mine from the local W H Smiths yesterday but I have not had time to peer within yet!

  2. Jim Duncan,

    In my opinion it is by far and away the best of the commercial magazines by a mile. I read almost every article, even if it is not about a period that particularly interests me.

    All the best,


  3. Yes. My favourite mag these days. In the past year it has gone from being the weakest publication out there to being the best. Thoughtful and useful articles in every issue. Well done Henry and the quality contributors.

  4. Alan Charlesworth,

    I totally agree. Henry Hyde has done wonders, and has produced a magazine that seems to be written by wargames for wargamers ... and not to fulfil the needs of a commercial interest or interests.

    All the best,
