And here it is! The first of 2020!
In issue 442 of Miniature Wargames we have Robin Hood, Indian Mutiny, Elder Scrolls, French Foreign Legion, Gates of Antares, lots of scratch building so much more!
On the cover we have Hollywood On Hood: a Robin Hood scenario and rules using the downloadable By Crom! system
In Jon Sutherland’s Command Decision it’s Mutiny! Shawpore, India 1857. You’re in command with four options to chose!
In The Elder Scrolls: The editor takes a trip to Modiphius HQ to try out a new skirmish Fantasy system.
in Send Three and Fourpence, Conrad Kinch presents All for the glory of France! a concluding part of his The Men who would be Kings scenario (with!). When it comes to scenarios, in Orbital Debris we have a unique Beyond the Gates of Antares game.
In The History Boy we have an interview with famed illustrator Peter Dennis while the Editor took a trip to the Warfare Show and came back with a photo report and news of why it’s the last one he’s ever going to in Reading!
Is it a Wargame? Is it a board game with pretty figures? In What is a Wargame? we ponder on just what is and isn’t a wargame…
If you want to scratch build we have a scratch building bonanza with a guide to some beautiful snow terrain using a secret ingredient that you already have in your bathroom….
a universally useful European storage building and a concrete bunker (in 28mm) plus some FREE card gothic ruins to assemble!
Club Spotlight features the Milton Keynes Wargames Society.
Finally, we have the review sections – Quartermaster for accessories and Defence in Depth for Figures and rules, plus we have Forward Observer for news plus Recce for a book reviews.
Last Word goes to Rick Priestly.

Good issue, I enjoyed it!
I don’t care that much for the cardboard buildings though, but I guess I’m not the target audience anymore, having amassed huge amounts of scenery over the years 😉

On the scenery front, I thought Dave Tuck’s bit on Snow boards was interesting, as was Tony Harwood’s continuing bits on cheap scratchbuilding. Next month, Tony handles a thatched Hovel!22/01/2020 at 17:10 #130055
Someone told me that I’m in this issue… I hope you got my good side (i.e. completely obscured behind a 6-foot thick reinforced concrete piece of Atlantic Wall)…

I’m a big fan of the little black bars cross people’s eyes to retain annonymity 🙂24/01/2020 at 19:58 #130153
