My wife gave me a subscription to Wargames, Soldiers and Strategy for Christmas. I asked for the digital version and received my first issue, number 58, within a few days of the order. This is a great issue. The theme is the 1809 war between the french and Austrians. What great timing, I'm painting Austrians!
The cover has a small diorama of Austrians marching through the mud. I
plan to use the painting techniques from one of the articles to do a
base of Austrians ro Volley and Bayonet crossing a muddy field.
are also rules for Napoleonic skirmish level play, including a
scenario, and a set of rules where each stand is a brigade. There i a
scenario and OB for Aspern-Essling. A review of Napoleonic rules and
miniatures round out the 1809 portion of this issue.:
There's also an article for gaming the defense of the hospital at
Rorke's Drift, including instructionss to build a hospital model. It's
one of those periods I have been able to avoid up to this point. After
reading the article, I'm tempted.
Figure reviews, book reviews, columns, as i said before, it's a good
issue. It's also a good value about $20 for a one year, six issue,
