Miniature Wargames with Battlegames Issue 399

The July issue of MINIATURE WARGAMES WITH BATTLEGAMES magazine was delivered just after we left on our latest cruise, and so far I have only just managed to have a quick look 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 Mike Hobbs
  • Caned palms: The continuing tales of a wargames widow by Diane Sutherland
  • Fantasy Facts by John Treadaway
  • Down by the sea: Fighting the Great Patriotic War one battle as a time: Part Three by Andrew Rolph
  • The perfect period: A magnificent wargaming spectacles by Paul Robinson
  • Express delivery: Get there the fustest with the mostest supplies by Chris Birch
  • Demonstrate THIS: Do wargames shows need demo games? by Nick Hughes
  • Grenouisse at bay part 1: The Wars of the Faltenian Succession return by Henry Hyde
  • Hex encounter by Brad Harmer-Barnes
  • Send three and fourpence by Conrad Kinch
  • Partizan 2016 by Mike Whitaker
  • RAGE 2016 by Neil Shuck
  • Recce
  • The Battlegames Combat Stress Appeal report by Henry Hyde
In his editorial, Henry Hyde announced that whilst he is remaining editor, he is handing over the layout of Miniature Wargames with Battlegames to a team that work for the publishers. The magazine has a distinctive style to it, and one hopes that the new team will retain it once they take over.

As to the contents ... well Andrew Rolph's continuing series on wargaming the Great Patriotic War is a 'must read' for me, as is Conrad Kinch's regular column. Nick Hughes makes some very interesting comments about the place of demo games at wargames shows, and I hope to try out the AIRFIX BATTLES scenario by Chris Birch as soon as I have enough time to do so.
