Miniature Wargames with Battlegames Issue 398

The June issue of MINIATURE WARGAMES WITH BATTLEGAMES magazine was delivered yesterday, just before I had to leave for my second Masonic meeting of the week, and I have only just managed to have a quick flick though it it.


The articles included in this issue are:
  • Briefing (i.e. the editorial) by Henry Hyde
  • World Wide Wargaming by Henry Hyde
  • Forward observer by Neil Shuck
  • Gates of Azera: The continuing tales of a wargames widow by Diane Sutherland
  • Fantasy Facts by John Treadaway
  • The Stalin Line: Fighting the Great Patriotic War one battle as a time: Part Two by Andrew Rolph
  • Push of pike and dint of butt: English Civil War tactics in wargames by Andy Copestake
  • Eindecker Part 3: Modelling the famous monoplane by Tony Harwood
  • With a fistful of figures: The joys of skirmish wargaming by Robert Piepenbrink
  • The look of the thing: Artistic licence in wargaming by Arthur Harman
  • Hex encounter by Brad Harmer-Barnes
  • Further thoughts on inspiration: How doe we attract new blood into the hobby? by David R Clemmet and Thomas Davidson
  • Send three and fourpence by Conrad Kinch
  • Salute 2016 by Neil Shuck
  • Recce
  • The Battlegames Combat Stress Appeal report by Henry Hyde
As I wrote earlier in the blog entry, I have only just managed to skim through this issue, but I have already noted several articles that I want to spend some time reading. They are Andrew Rolph's The Stalin Line (I'm a sucker for anything to do with the war on the Eastern Front/the Great Patriotic War), Tony Harwood's Eindecker Part 3 (I might need some model aircraft in the near future, and his modelling technique appears to be very simple and effective), Arthur Harman's The look of the thing (anything that Arthur writes is always worth reading!), and finally the article by David R Clemmet and Thomas Davidson about attracting new blood into the hobby. I've always tried to 'do my bit' in this regard, and wondered if they had any new ideas about how to do this.
