Of Magazines and ideas...

The rain is pouring and the week has been long and tiring. I have become distracted once more - the lure of bicorne and/or shako in 28mm with biggish units! Yet I sit at home delighted with this magazine which arrived today. I am fed up with the glossies on the high street- lovely pics but little text. I look briefly and leave them upon the shelves these days. Yet "Battlegames" has both (great pics and great text) and more..
I have read quite a few issues but not yet subscribed- I fear I will have to do so . This is the tonic I needed- thanks Henry and others! The fascinating article on the Freikorps has begun me pondering what might have happened in the Duchy of Tradgardland in 1918 and beyond - not to mention Saschen -Vindow... Too many ideas not enough time and money- I imagine that is something we all have in common... I will leave off and get back to the articles! P.S a happy thanksgiving to all my American blogging associates on EvE and beyond- have a good one!


  1. Battlegames is the only magazine I currently subscribe to . . . and it is by far the best of all those I've seen.

  2. I'll second Jeff's remarks. If you subscribe to, or purchase, one wargames magazine, it should be this one. Each issue is a delight and leaves me hungry for the next one. My only critique is that it doesn't come out but every two months. :-(

    Best Regards,


  3. I agree with both gentlemen, it's a superb magazine and the only one I subscribe to. And yes, too much inspiration, not enough time or cash... =(
