    Issue 464 of Miniature Wargames we have another superb selection of rules and scenarios.


    On the cover we have Verr-Myn Solo: An underground adventure for your FREE Deadzone rules by Mantic Games – a copy given away with each issue worth £24.99.

    We have Command Decision. In Tightening the Noose it’s Falaise, North-west France: August 1944.

    In Send Three and Fourpence we have When the Bell tolls one. Conrad Kinch gives us an exclusive Silver Bayonet scenario for the new Osprey rules written by Joe McCullough. And if that whets your appetite for Napoleonic spooky skirmish, we have a scenery build to back it up: Tony Harwood constructs a Creepy Crypt. But if that kind of build is too picturesque, how about a return to basics with a Corrugated Camp and a scratch built Nissen Hut!

    In The Eastern Front we fooled you: this is not the Stalingrad you were expecting! It’s the 17 century period of the “Deluge” with some easy play rules.

    In Super Massive Black Hole: there’s a big game hunt scenario using Core Space by Battle Systems.

    In Show – Don’t Tell: The editor takes his camera to Partizan 2021. What a show!

    In Waterloo Sixty there’s a tale of social engagement and the story of building a big Waterloo game and what that meant to a team of gamers.

    Finally, we have the review sections with a bumper crop of Defence in Depth for Figures and rules, Quartermaster for scenery and accessories plus we have Forward Observer for news and Recce for insightful book reviews.

    Last Word Features the men behind Flags, Faces & Bases.

     

    Enjoy!

    Looks excellent. Is it a pdf download code or a physical book John?

    It’s a pdf download so that the digital subscribers can get a copy too!

    Mr. Picky wants to know what a Comet is doing at Falaise.

    All the best,

    John.

    It does seem, er… unlikely (without Time Travel…). I’ll have to speak to that Sutherland bloke

    Any idea when it’s on the shelf?

    Scunthorpe has zero issues (Smiths had a copy of 463 out and did not know about a new issue) and PressReader does not have it showing either…

    I haven’t had mine yet Andrew so I’m guessing – at best – later on this week – maybe Friday – or early next week.

    Arrived on PressReader within the last couple of hours

    But no rules and I cannot find neither a download location or code for the free rules

    Do I have to get a physical copy as well?  I thought the PressReader sub would count???

    Hi folks

    I haven’t a copy of the digital one to hand but I’m informed that the rules code is on the welcome editorial page. The print vesion has a ticket stuck lightly onto the front cover.

    Sorry for the delay: weekend at Salute etc etc

    I have picked up this issue for the Eastern Front rules, I’ve been to the download site but can’t find an army list for the Polish, am I missing something or just being blind/stupid?

    Andy

    Just checking back through my notes, there should be lists there (well, xl spread sheets) available for download on the TTG site for these. Can you confirm that you can get to those? and is it just pols you were wanting? I only ask this as Dave Tuck – the author – didn’t provide one for the Poles. But I can ask him!

    Andy: sometimes things fall off the end of things at the digital HQ!

    Two things: firstly if you want to em ail me at the works address (inside the front cover) or even my regular email (on the Hammers Slammers website rather than me reproducing it here) then I’ll email you the two lists I have – Muskovite and Otterman.

    Secondly, I’ll drop an email to Dave Tuck and ask him if he has any others (or any planned).

    EDIT: misread what you said: you have those. Right.

    Okay I’ll email Dave Tuck

    Hi, i’ve got the same problem it seems, bought issue 464 (great magazine imo) but cannot get my hands on the Deadzone rulebook. Sadly i bought a digital copy on the play store (used “restore existing purchase” on the app) so i’m not sure if i can get it now. Is it possible with this kind of purchase?

    Folks

    I understand that the banner at the top of the welcome/editorial page is clickable to form a link.

    Try that and get back to me or email me at the Warners adress in the front cover and we’ll take it from there!

    I tried and “entered the competition”, but did’nt receive anything even after creating a tabletopgaming account with the same email than my purchase (the same day, so 19/11)
