Well, this morning the latest Wargames Illustrated landed on my doormat and it has reinforced my view that I’m not overly impressed with the new format. This is an issue where there is little if anything to interest me. I’m not big on vikings, ECW or Flames of War and making a machine gun wagon for a train is rather low on my to-do list. And the African article just brought back nightmares of the old Wargames Illustrated Darkest Africa stuff that seemed to appear again and again.
Often, in any mag the reviews can compensate a little as I can see stuff I MIGHT be interested in. But no, this month they’ve had soooo much content that the reviews have been shifted to the website. I can’t read the website on the loo, in the bath or on the bus which is when I usually want to read my wargames mags. The only glimmer of hope is that Sam Mustafa may have some input into an upcoming issue.
And the Moments in History figure range they are pushing still strikes me as some of the most uninspired sculpting I’ve seen in a long time and wouldn’t tempt me to subscribe!
As you can tell, I’m not that keen on this issue…. 🙂
