For my money, an improved edition this time, better writing, better art work, improved layout. #win.
Things kick off with a bang as Steve Pole writes a great article on Napoleons drive into Russia, and then ties it nicely all back to his new title which I have had my eye on for a while.
The other articles I found interesting were the Legion Games interview with Randy Lien. I don’t own any Legion games…. But I want to. I really wish them all the best. A pity that company is so short on capital.
then John Burtt who I think is an old school Grognard guy writes a super report on the Grognard Sims title from the Armoured Knights series. I had been looking at the Death Ride series for some time but did not want another monster tactical system. I wa sunaware the Chris Fasulo had this Armoured Knights game series also [ if someone has a cheap copy for sale let me know as I would like to review it].
I liked what I read about the variability of combat and the level of detail you may need to resolve to optimize combat. Three other titles in the series focus on, Operation Crusader and Venezia and one more modern title looking at Suez- called Operation Gazelle.
Smitty of Panzer Digest fame and Facebook game arrival images…..infamy does 2 quick reviews on the Hunter and Adobe Walls. I’m seeing a Legion Wargames theme and heavy advertising in mag for this issue!
Andy Loakes does a bang up job on his pending Legion Games game Toulon (which I have on pre order)…GO ANDY!!!! With a supporting article on the Fortresses of the era by Luc Olivier.
Other do some solid reviews also, the OSG title gets a free pass in the review by Jim Falkus, but I’m letting my NLB annoyance filter in aren’t I!!
Oh and John Firer provides a detailed scenario edit for one of Raciers games – Stalins war. This article could have used some images or table to make it easier to digest. Those type of articles are hit or miss. you like it if you own. It is meaningless if you dont.
