    cover

    Issue 434 of Miniature Wargames is with us (I was a little late with my announcements this month: blame easter!). What do we have for the readers?

    We have a special  A Cruel Seas triple bill: not only two FREE US PT boat models (worth £6) with a painting guide, but The Spout: a naval scenario for an alternate D-Day; and Jaw-Jaw & War-War: an interview about the origins of Cruel Seas with John Stallard CEO of Warlord Games.

    In Send Three and Fourpence Conrad Kinch gives us an interview with a new figures manufacturer Katsina Miniatures and a froggy scenario for Rangers of Shadow Deep using some of their figures.

    In Shilluk we have an exclusive new African Warriors army – complete with a painting guide – for Death in the Dark Continent by the rules author Chris Peers.

    In Command Decision we have a Hastings conundrum from the Norman point of view by Jon Sutherland.


    Ambush is a Skirmish Sangin scenario that can be adapted for any modern combat small unit action system by the rules author Colin Phillips of Dishdash games.

    In The Blue & The Grey  there’s a set of rules modifications for playing ACW in 15mm.

    In Paint A Winner we have an interview with pro-painter David Soper.

    On The Case James Winspear looks at the best way to pack your troops.

    In Double Excel the editor writes a report on the Salute show and the Wargames Widow shows you how to make glazing units for buildings using a sieve!

    There’s All the usual news and reviews. For reviews we have Fantasy Facts: with the usual look at the latest products in F&SF gaming Plastic Soldier Company;  North Star; GZG; Osprey and more! And Forward Observer with (mostly) historical wargaming product reports on Pendraken; RK Modelworks; Brigade Models; Caliver Books; and Warlord.  Finally we have Recce for a 16 book reviews. And the free Club Directory!

    And – just to warn you – next month will be another give away with more Cruel Seas models and the month after will be some free Prodos releases.

    And – when you think of £6 this month and again next month for Cruel Seas models and that a yearly subscription to the whole magazine is just £9.99, you have to ask yourself (if you don’t currently have a subscription) why not!!!

    Aw crud, as a digital subscriber my hands won’t be getting on the freebies.  The internals look to be great as usual though.

    Thx for posting this, John. I´ve got to catch the postman beforehand – because it may happen that I will get only pieces of plastic ships if he tries to insert it into the slot. Usually I get the MW on the saturdays after the release.

    Worth buying extra paper copies just for the boats and other stuff on coming issues (he says in a shameless act of self promotion )

    I’ll have to see if I can find a place here that carries it.  Don’t think I’ve seen it at Barnes & Noble in the DFW area.
