...Magazines. Well things are moving again, sort of, in that I've been doing even more reading. I don't often buy wargame magazines these days (infested as they often are with too many space marines, zombies and in-your-face marketing) but here are the latest ones I've been looking at. First up is Wargames Illustrated #314 from, what? Is it really December 2013? I'm really falling behind...
Legio Wargames website and blog. And all this plus an article on Jutland and some ACW stuff and only two pieces relating to Flames of War products, so I think we got off lightly there.
Then there was the impulse buy this weekend. We had to try out Edinburgh's new tram and so we ended up in the Gyle Shopping Centre and, with nothing much to do whilst my son was engrossed in his Godzilla 'zine, I bought Minature Wargames #374. The principal motive was that it has an article by Dr Kerry Thomas on mass painting of 15mm horses, which I often find difficult. And what with quite a few WSS Blue Moon 15mm cavalry to paint (as Danes) I needed some ideas and inspiration. Job done.
I should add that I have never thrown out a wargame magazine in my life and therefore I was also able this week to pull off the shelf and review this timeless classic, Minature Wargames #1.
The thing is that I didn't remember that it included a guide to painting 15mm figures and a (free) futuristic space strategy game to be played out on a hex map. Isn't it funny how some things don't change.
