Taking a stroll through the newest edition of the magazine, the May 2018 issue, it`s time to have a look at it`s contents.
The cover articles of new sculpting techniques and the Cavalier report made me pick it up, but I had no idea what was actually inside for the rest.
So as usual, the bold marked articles picked my intrests...
Forward Observer - news on recent releases
Send Three and Fourpence - a look at what motivates wargamers in what they do
Hell By Daylight - the final part for 20th century skirmish rules
One of these Things is Not Like the Others - a view on historical and fantasy wargaming.
Villiers Bocage 1944: scenarios for the Normandy actions of 1944
A Cavalier Approach - show report
Dark Horizons - a look at the newest franchise from Modiphius, Star Wars Legions and more fantasy and sci-fi releases... including the Burrows and Badgers game I`m going to get for me and Noshi.
The Path to Frostgrave - how to write and a new scenario for Frostgrave
Putty to Pixels - a very intresting article on how models are now sculpted by computer instead of by hand
The Future is Foam - how to make scenery with EVA foam, a material I know all to well as a cosplayer intressee
The Victorio Campaign - this article is a guide to western gunfights in the 1870 to 1886 era
Recce - a look at the latest wargaming reading releases
Swampy River - the wargaming widow builds some scenery
WWW Wargaming Web World - a look at how to set up and manage online wargaming communities
And that is it. While I foound no less then 7 articles intresting, it leaves me with a bit of a mixed feeling. Thing is, most of them where either opinion pieces, or general intrest articles, but only one was actually about a possible historical gaming project in the from of the Victorio article. Heck, it only contained FOUR articles for gaming anyways (Victorio, Frostgrave, Daylight and Bocage) whoch isn`t a lot at all for a wargaming magazine...
So no, this was a rather weak issue for a "wargamer" if looked at objectively.
