Miniature Wargames - Issue 346
The Devils own Breakout by Graham Burke presents a series of small unit scenarios for D-Day wargames. As well as the main scenario the article lists a couple of additional ideas for games as well as notes on figure availability and paint schemes.
This months issue has the usual wide range of articles covering periods as diverse as WWII in 28mm through to Ancient Britons, the Peninsular War, the Crimean War, the First Silesian War in 10mm and even fantasy/sci-fi skirmish games. There is bound to be something of interest to most wargamers in this issue although it does make this issue feel a bit disjointed and random. Having said that the standard of the writing and the excellent illustrations throughout make this an enjoyable read.
It has occurred to me that recently I am living my hobby vicariously through wargaming magazines and I must put this right soon. The Delvers are meeting this Friday and I'm hoping to hear from the Rejects soon (hint hint) for my first Wargame of the year. Plus I'm determined to squeeze in a few FoW games with my brother-in-law pretty soon. To this end I'm determined to try and finish a couple of painting projects that have lingered half done. One idea I'm going to experiment with is taking small bits of projects into work so I can get jobs done during my lunch break (when I get one!).
