1-201660 GUNBOAT: Tactical Naval Combat with Minor Ships GUNBOAT is a tactical naval wargame that recreates naval battles between gunboats and small sailing ships in the last quarter of the XVIII century and the first quarter of the XIX century. These 'flotilla'of small craft were used to patrol coastal areas, attack small vessels and sometimes larger ships near the coast.

Historical examples of small flotilla actions include; Spanish attacks on Gibraltar, Danish attacks on British in the Baltic Sea, Combats near Cadiz in the Peninsular War, Barbary corsairs attacks in the Mediterranean to include the war of the US Navy against Barbary estates (1801-1805), and the naval battles in the 1812 war in the Great Lakes, and Lake Eire.

GUNBOAT is designed specifically to play with the 18mm Naval Crew miniatures from WARMODELLING MINIATURES and the Gunboats made by Laser Dream Works. 1 vol, 48 pgs 2013 SPAIN, CAPITAN GAMES

1-86133 Armoured Assault Armoured Assault is the fourth source book for Rules of Engagement and allows players to field additional vehicles to those listed in current published works.

As well as this it also provides gamers with additional scenarios with rules for fielding more than one armored vehicle alongside infantry platoons or on their own.

What tanks will you find in Armoured Assault? The majority of the vehicles you will find in the book are vehicles that were found on the battlefield during the latter part of World War Two. These are vehicles that haven't featured in the Orders of Battle given in the rule book or Operation Bagration source book. As well as these we have also included a few vehicles which, although not in the field in large numbers, are available to gamers as models and thus we wanted to give people the option to field them. 1 vol, 80 pgs 2010 UK, GREAT ESCAPE GAMES

1-FGVP04 Frostgrave Barbarians 28mm Miniatures Twenty multi-part Barbarian figures, designed to be used in Frostgrave, the Fantasy Skirmish Game.

In The Forgotten Pacts supplement for Frostgrave, players lead their warbands into the northern reaches of the city, exploring the ruined temples of the Frozen City to search for the lost secrets of evocation - the art of summoning demons. While the lure of such knowledge is great, few wizards have ventured into this region as it is overrun by barbaric northern tribesmen who have descended from the hills in their own search for treasure. Marking themselves with demonic sigils, many of these barbarians have aligned with ancient powers discovered amongst the temples.

This box set of hard plastic figures allows you to build 20 different Barbarians to play in the game Frostgrave. To help you design the perfect Barbarian warband, the box set contains 20 bodies, loads of weapon/ arm variants, 40 heads and all sorts of Barbaric equipment. No two warbands should ever be the same!

Plus, the Barbarians are compatible with the Frostgrave Soldiers and Frostgrave Cultists, giving you even more potential for conversions.

28mm sized plastic figures, supplied unpainted. Figures require assembly with glue.

Unlike the other books in the Potomac Publications series this booklet does not provide details of individual battles but gives an umpire's guide to conducting two campaigns within the American Civil War: Pea Ridge/Elkhorn Tavern and Bermuda Hundred.

For each campaign the background is given, followed by an historical chronology. More detailed information is then given on terrain, movement rates, weather, and the armies involved.

Extensive umpires notes are given followed by the main objectives of the two armies.

The final section in each campaign gives a complete order of battle followed by a sketch map. The leaders and regimental units are graded for the Johnny Reb rules (number of men, type of weapon, and quality), but these campaigns can be adapted to other rules systems. 1 vol, 20 pgs 1996 UK, POTOMAC PUBLICATIONS

* The Germans: Fresh from the hard lessons of the Polish Campaign, the Germans had settled on a clear doctrine and simplified army organization.

1-214040 Chadwick, Frank ARMIES OF OCTOBER: Armies and Weapons of the 1973 Arab-Israeli War In October of 1973 the Arab armies of Egypt, Syria, and almost a dozen other states launched a surprise attack against the Israeli-occupied territories in the Sinai and Golan Heights.

This offers a comprehensive study of the belligerent armies available under a single cover. For the armies of Israeli, Egypt, Syria, Iraq, Jordan, Morocco, Tunisia, Algeria, Libya, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, and the Palestinian Liberation Army.

The Armies of October features:

* Army organization
* Doctrinal strengths and weaknesses
* Detailed notes on equipment holdings
* Order of battle down to the battalion level

For Command Decision players we also include game organizations from division to battalion level and a complete list of weapons and combat vehicles with all game statistics.

The October War, the Yom Kippur War, the Ramadan War-all these names described the largest and hardest-fought war in the long history of the Arab-Israeli conflict. Never was there a conflict of this scope, featuring this much back-and-forth maneuver, or such dramatic turns of fortune. For the wargamer, this conflict provides armies more balanced in equipment and capabilities than any other Mideast war. It also saw the first widespread use of wire-guided antitank missiles and the first major generation of post-WWII armored vehicles.

The October War provides a unique conflict for study and gaming, a blend of the logical development of WWII weapon systems encountering the early examples of late-century military technology in the form of wire-guided missiles, extensive mechanization throughout the force structure, and omnipresent light antitank weapons. 1 vol, 100 pgs 2017 US, TEST OF BATTLE GAMES

1-209750 Chamberlaine, Major William edited by John Curry The Coast Artillery War Game (1916) Early Naval Wargaming Chamberlin's Coast Artillery Wargame (1916) was designed to train the coastal defence batteries of the United States in the procedures necessary to direct fire. It was a derivative of the better known Fred Jane Naval Wargame. The foreword is written by Al Nofi.

The game was played over a large floor based model of a harbor. The players looked down on this area from cubicals at the back of the room. From there, they could practice identifying ships, locating the enemy and giving appropriate fire control orders.

The book has notes on locations of fortifications, batteries, reserve ammunition and tactical use of searchlights. It gives an example of planning of an assault on coastal batteries and how they should be used in defence. One of the key considerations is knowing when to hold one's fire to avoid giving away batteries locations prior to the main attack.

The chapters on key topics such as estimating the situation are invaluable notes for the keen naval wargamer of the big gun era.

The Coast Artillery War Game is a game, but it implies a knowledge of the Fred Jane War Game and uses the ship plans from the classic Jane's Fighting Ships series.

1-196900 Curry, John THE WARGAMING PIONEERS: Early Wargames Vol. 1 Including Little Wars by H.G. Wells, The War Game for Boy Scouts, and The War Game by Captain Sachs 1898-1940

Volume 1 of the Early Wargames series contains a compilation of fascinating pre-Donald Featherstone wargames written between 1898 and 1940. Prior to Donald Featherstone publishing his classic book War Games in 1962, there were numerous attempts by other authors, to create wargames. H.G. Wells's 1913 Little Wars, was the best known early wargaming book, although only one of a number of early wargaming rules. The many similarities in the rules indicate that H.G. Wells was clearly familiar with some of these when devising his own rules. This book contains selected key wargames all written between 1898 and 1940 including:

* Notes on the Robert Louis Stevenson Game (1898)
* The Great Wargame (1908)
* War Games for Boy Scouts (1910)
* Little Wars (1913) by HG Wells
* Sham Battle 1929 (Extract) by Lt. Dowdall and Gleason
* Mechano Artillery Duel (1932)
* The Liddell Hart Wargame (1935)
* Captain Sachs War Game (1940)

1-209760 Curry, John and others The Discovering Wargames Series and Bill Lamming's Medieval Campaign Rules: Early Wargaming Rules Volume 5 John Tunstill, Arthur Taylor and Bill Lamming were some of the early wargamers who through their enthusiasm, knowledge and writing helped turn miniature wargaming into a worldwide hobby.

This work includes three books:

John Tunstill's Discovering Wargames- published by Shire Books.

Arthur Taylor's Rules for Wargaming - published by Shire Books.

Bill Lamming's tremendously popular Medieval Campaign and Battle Rules.

Between these authors, they wrote a large range of wargaming rules, from ancient to WW1 Air warfare. Tunstill's work was an introduction to the hobby and the rules were introduced period by period throughout the whole book. Taylor assumed the reader was already familiar with wargaming and so included no less than 8 sets of rules in just 68 pages. The Lamming campaign rules were ahead of their time and allowed the creation of a medieval world to run detailed wargaming campaigns.

All three of these works were widely read in the early 1970's, but now the originals are starting to disintegrate and a new publication is needed to preserve these key works.

Illustrated throughout in color. This series is now well understood as one of the major classics of wargaming history. As with the two previous volumes, Gettysburg provides a detailed study of the actual battle and then uses the military challenges of important phases of the battle to create a series of wargames. In this case Fire & Fury Regimental rules are used and the scale, because of the volume of troops involved, is 15mm. The result gives much food for thought, especially the significance of artillery on the second day. 1 vol, 160 pgs 2011 UK, KEN TROTMAN

1-1909312 Drewienkiewicz, J WARGAMING IN HISTORY Vol. 12: KONIGGRATZ Fully illustrated throughout with color photos, maps, and full orders of battle. Examines the Battle of Koniggratz on 3rd July 1866, where the Prussians inflicted a devastating defeat on the Austrians, effectively ending the Seven Weeks War in one day and establishing Prussia in the front rank of European Powers.

Analyses the battle in great detail, and then describes a wargame of the entire battle on one board, as well as wargaming three key areas of the battle: The Holawald, where the Prussians were checked; Problus, where Austria's Saxon allies hung on, and the Swiepwald, where disobedient Austrian commanders threw away a quarter of the army's strength, thereby losing the battle.

Examines a plausible 'What If' alternative battle on the Austrian right, which could have avoided disaster, had the commanders followed their orders. It questions the received wisdom on the causes of the defeat and offers the performance of the key personalities. The book includes photos of the 150th Anniversary Re-enactment of the battle. 1 vol, 204 pgs 2016 CAMBRIDGE, KEN TROTMAN

As usual illustrated throughout in color with color maps and wargame photos, orders of battle etc. 2014. The latest volume in the series goes to one of the most fruitful of campaigns to wargame, Jackson's most famous series of battles in the Shenandoah Valley. In characteristic way the authors have not put pen to paper or soldier to table without the most thorough first-hand research of the ground, allowing them to tackle the real deciding issues of the campaign, such as the stone wall at Kernstown, the exhaustion of Schenck's troops at McDowell, Jackson moving in the wrong direction approaching Winchester, the gang of slaves who saved the day at Port Republic, the supply problems that dictate the campaign, and more.

As with previous volumes, this 'staff ride' doubles as a major history of the campaign and a state-of-the-art wargaming study. 1 vol, 204 pgs 2014 UK, KEN TROTMAN

1-203350 Dunn, Phil with editor John Curry PHIL DUNN'S FURY AT SEA: Rapid Naval Wargaming Including Paddy Griffith's One-Eyed Napoleonic Naval Rules (2013) Phil Dunn, author of the classic naval wargaming book, Sea Battles, has written a new book on rapid naval wargames. Chapters include fast play rules that allow even the largest battles to be fought to a satisfying conclusion in a single session. In 1916, Jutland was a 'no-hoper' for the Germans. This was not true earlier in the war. The scenario is for a classic war-deciding encounter set in 1915.

During the late 1920's, the USA made plans for war with Britain. The rules and scenario allow this classic 'what if' scenario of the Royal Navy to be set against the United States Navy. The outcome would have changed the political map of the world and the course of the 20th century.

Also included are memories of a lifetime of naval wargaming, The book is supplemented by Paddy Griffith's One-eyed Napoleonic Naval Rules as used by the Royal Military Academy's Wargaming Club. Also included is an example of Paddy Griffith's naval wargaming scenario for the Battle of the Nile in 1798 with Dunn's concepts by the well-known military historian Paddy Griffith. 1 vol, 107 pgs 2012 UK, JOHN CURRY EVENTS

1-14590 Featherstone, Donald TANK BATTLES IN MINIATURE: #4 Med Campaigns 1943-45 Part of a set of five books by several authors.

Following the same format as the others in the series (on the Western Desert, Russian, and D-Day campaigns) the book includes an introduction to recreating tank battles in miniature; in particular, for simulating the conditions of the rugged Tunisian and Italian countrysides.

The author actually served with the 51st Royal Tank Regiment in Italy and so draws heavily on his own experience of what armored warfare was like. He includes detailed accounts of individual engagements which are ideal scenarios for wargamers. These really give the feel for what it was like to be the commander, driver, or gunner of a tank in action.

Chapters give a detailed breakdown of equipment performance, as well as notes on such vital related subjects as navigation, communications and minefields.

For any wargamer who wishes to pursue an interest in the Western Desert theater and continue his campaign into Tunisia and Italy, this book is ideal. 1 vol, 201 pgs 2011 UK, JOHN CURRY EVENTS

1-201490 Grant, Charles THE SIEGE OF LA CRENOIL: Fleischer's Revenge This is the fourth in a series of mini-campaign books. It follows on from The Raid on St. Michel, The Annexation of Chiraz, and The Wolfenbuttel War. This book, like its predecessors, provides a number of teasers or scenarios, with each one linked to the next. What I have done is to provide the key actions within the context of a mini-campaign, a siege, in this case, but without the need for much of the campaign mechanics. In addition, I have provided the basis to run the siege as a campaign, day by day, using a map, and fighting each scenario as it arises. There are some basic rules that cover the siege works, firing and damage. The business of sieges brings with it a long list of technical terms, and a glossary of these has been provided near the end of this book.

In order to conceal from the opposing commanders the total forces of the enemy in the campaign, details of the relevant forces for one side have been set out in the instructions for that side, to be read only by the relevant player and the organizer. Suggested forces for the stand-alone version provided. 1 vol, 104 pgs 2013 UK, PARTIZAN PRESS

1-210341 Grant, Charles REFIGHTING HISTORY VOLUME 1: SEVEN YEARS WAR - FIGHTING WITHDRAWALS Refighting History is a new series of wargame books by Charles S Grant. In this series Charles describes historical actions, provides the detail of the forces involved and the preparation to bring the actions to the wargame table. Each refight is then described both in words and pictures. These will include not only famous larger battles but also smaller actions which can be achieved with modest wargame forces.

In addition to the battles and games Charles will include sections on tactics, troop types and the development of his own armies. The series will aim to bring research, real scenarios, lots of pictures and the fun of wargaming to the reader. So with Volume 1 looking at Seven Years War small action, specifically fighting withdrawals, we are set to begin Refighting History. 1 vol, 112 pgs 2013 UK, PARTIZAN PRESS

* Mollwitz is covered with an excerpt from The War Game describing how it was first fought back in 1968. The battle is then revisited with quite different results.

* Chotusitz includes an unusual twist.

* Sahay is a most interesting action.

Also, this contains an update on Charles Grant's wargame armies and a section on battlefield maneuver in the mid-18th C and its implications for wargaming. 1 vol, 136 pgs 2016 UK, PARTIZAN PRESS

1-207120 Grant, Charles S ATTACK ON THE JUNGER A mini-campaign with five stand-alone scenarios, ranging from two small actions, through two medium-sized games, to a large two-day battle, which may fought as two separate actions.

This is the fifth mini-campaign book dealing with the fictitious wars of the Grand Duchy of Lorraine and the Vereinigte Freie Stadte (VFS). This volume, Attack on the Junger, takes up the story straight after the previous book, The Siege of La Crenoil. That said, it is not necessary to have read the previous book. The information in this one will provide all you need.

Readers of previous volumes will know that Table Top Teasers presents wargamers with tactical problems and challenges. The series of mini-campaign books takes a number of teasers and links them together to provide what is effectively short campaigns, but without the paperwork and organization that is needed to run one. The books include some campaign aspects, for example, if you follow the course of the campaign, casualties will be carried forward from one battle to the next, and decisions will have to be made that will impact on the next battle and beyond.

1-196780 Hyde, Henry WARGAMING COMPENDIUM, THE This book gives a complete introduction to the hobby of wargaming with miniatures, especially suitable for the newcomer but also containing sufficient depth and breadth of information to attract the more experienced gamer. Packed with color photographs, maps, and diagrams, the book is a visual treat, but one built on the solid foundations of a highly literate and engaging text that does not 'dumb down' the hobby. Every aspect is explained clearly and in a way that both informs and entertains, with plenty of personality, gentle humor, and a lightness of touch.

The contents include a brief history of the development of wargaming, choice of periods from ancients to sci-fi, the question of scale (not only of miniatures, but the size of game from the smallest skirmishes to epic battles), terrain, buying and painting miniatures, creating scenarios for wargames, running a campaign, solo wargaming, and so on. It also incorporates simple wargaming rules covering all periods of history as well as fantasy and science fiction gaming. These rules will have optional mechanisms allowing them to be used for very small games with just a few figures, or much bigger games with several regiments or brigades on each side. B/w and color photos throughout. 1 vol, 256 pgs 2012

1-973012 Latham, Mark THE CTHULHU CAMPAIGNS: Ancient Rome Rome, the greatest empire the world has ever known, limitless in breadth and power, magnificent in its glory! But something evil, ancient and unknowable gnaws at the heart of the empire. Dark gods, trapped for centuries in thrice-warded tombs, have been disturbed by Roman plunderers. A secret war is fought daily between those who would harness this strange power for themselves, and those who fear it signals the very end of the empire.

Across the sea, roused from eternal slumber by a world awash with war, by omens and pagan slaughter, a Great Old One waits for the way to be opened. A cosmic terror that man was not meant to know. Those who know its name tremble, and only the very brave-or very foolish-incant it for their own ends. They whisper it in darkness; they cry it from atop blasted hills; they scream it to the raging oceans: 'Cthulhu.' 1 vol, 80 pgs 2016 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING

It was very different from the development of the H.G. Wells rules by Donald Featherstone and others. Although photographs of the Morshauser game were included in Donald Feathersone's Advanced War Games, the book did not contain the rules or any further information about this early war game.

1-PMAO40 Perry, Alan and Michael PERRY 28mm English Army 1415-1429 The figures in this box represent the English Army at the height of the Hundred Years War, when the English bowmen dominated the field of battle in France. Specifically the figures cover the period from the Battle of Agincourt (in 1415, when they were led by Henry V) to the Siege of Orleans (1429, when the French were led by Joan of Arc) which became the turning point of the war.

All the Men at Arms are represented in the full plate harness which was now the norm for gentry. As with the metal range, they cover the first flowering of real full plate armor -- this being mostly rounded and 'globular.' Although they are described as English, they could be used as French too. The only differences being the English tending to fight in 'white' uncovered armor a little more more than the French. This set covers the main types of armor styles used during these 14 years.

Things changed quite fast especially with the basinets at this time. More plates were being added to the basic basinet with aventail until the aventail disappeared altogether and you had the full great basinet. The houndskull visors also became globular during this period.

Shields for Men at Arms had more or less been dropped from use in the field as the armor became more complete, so there's only one on the sprue (two per box). All the visors are separate as is the 'orle' or decorated circlet which was typically English. Two of the bodies have jupons and the other four are in 'white' armour. These designed these so some of the arms from the Wars of the Roses sets are interchangeable, the shoulders are the same width. So, with some of the 'white' armored bodies (i.e. the ones in the great basinets), you should be able to bridge the 1440's with the WotR arms.

The archers are represented in padded aketons -- nocking, drawing, and loosing as a cohesive body. We've included a few pairs for arms for close combat too. These will be available separately as you might want to raise the ratio of the archers to men at arms. The box contains 24 archers and 12 men at arms. With the archers there is also a trumpet arm, the men at arms frame includes a longer spear that can be used for a standard or banner. Commanders can be used from within the men at arms.

The box contains: 36 figures, unit bases, 17 banners, 6 standards, painting guide, and information sheet. 1 vol, 36 pgs 2013 UK, PERRY MINIATURES

1-212490 Priestley, Rick and Lambshead, John Tabletop Wargames - A Designers' and Writers' Handbook Unlike chess or backgammon, tabletop wargames have no single, accepted set of rules. Most wargamers at some point have had a go at writing their own rules and virtually all have modified commercially available sets to better suit their idea of the ideal game or to adapt favorite rules to a different historical period or setting. But many who try soon find that writing a coherent set of rules is harder than they thought, while tweaking one part of an existing set can often have unforeseen consequences for the game as a whole. Now, at last, help is at hand. 120 integrated color illustrations.

Veteran gamer and rules writer John Lambshead has teamed up with the legendary Rick Priestley, creator of Games Workshop's phenomenally successful Warhammer system, to create this essential guide for any would-be wargame designer or tinkerer. Rick and John give excellent advice on deciding what you want from a wargame and balancing 'realism' (be it in a historical or a fantasy/sci-fi context) with playability. They discuss the relative merits of various mechanisms (cards, dice, tables) then discuss how to select and combine these to handle the various essential game elements of turn sequences, combat resolution, morale etc to create a rewarding and playable game that suits your tastes and requirements

1-198831 Simon, Wally; edited by Russ Lockwood SECRETS OF WARGAME DESIGN: A Tabletop Toolkit of Ideas, Analysis, and Rule Mechanics From the Center for Provocative Wargaming...

For decades, Wally Simon helped shape miniatures wargaming through Potomac Wargamers Review -- his monthly photocopied newsletter that analyzed the mechanics of wargame rules. First published in the 1970s, PWR ran monthly through August 2002, delving into the nuts and bolts of how rules worked -- and how they did not. Published rules, home-grown rules, and even his own rules came under scrutiny as he created, destroyed, and tweaked rules mechanisms to try and 'produce a game which keeps all players continually busy and interested in what's going on.'

In Volume 1, we offer an introduction to 'Wally Rules' and a dozen of his best articles pulled from the pages of PWR. Stuffed full of ideas, concepts, and rules mechanics covering wargaming action across all eras, they offer provocative wit, wisdom, and imagination to help you tweak an existing set of rules or create your own rules to make a better wargame.

Contents:

* Wally Rules: The Search for Tabletop Perfection
* ACW Telescoping Battlefield: Battleline Melee, Reaction Points, and the d6 Crowd
* Renaissancing The Rules: Support, Rally Zones, and River Crossings
* Revolutionary Morale: Reaction Levels, Cards, and AWI Battles
* The Parade Ground Indian Mutiny: Loyalty Quotients and Rally Points
* Pushing Panzers in WWII: Barbarossa Ho! Thunder From The Sky Artillery
* The Theory Of Melee: Routs, Rallies, and 'Rithmetic
* Card Movement Systems: Wild West Gunfights and British Colonials
* Ancient City Fight: Gridded Play, Reinforcements, and a Melee Template
* Ancient Country Fight: Nodes, Battle Boards, and Command Points
* Great Napoleonic Thoughts: National Characteristics and Quantitative Playability
* Big Picture Siege Game: A Variable Time Strategy Idea
* Sixth Sense For Sequences Of Play: Options, Consequences, and the Future

Wally Simon was one of the founders of HMGS, hosting the first meeting in his basement. A statistician by trade, he used his mathematical skills to analyze probabilities within wargame mechanics. Wally's Basement is named after him. Edited by Russ 'MagWeb' Lockwood.

1-200200 Sutherland, Jonathan and Diane Canwell Battlefield General: El Alamein 1942 The Battlefield General game books put you in command of the forces engaged in some of history's most famous battles. Your ability to make the right tactical decision will be tested at every turn of the page.

The 2nd Battle of El Alamein in October 1942 was one of the crucial turning points of WWII. Here Lieutenant General Bernard Montgomery ('Monty') and the British Eighth Army (the famous 'Desert Rats') halted the victorious advance of Field Marshal Erwin Rommel (the Desert Fox) and his Afrika Korps. Britain's vital interests in the Middle East, particularly the vital oil fields, were thus saved. The book presents the reader with a series of command decisions, aided by situation maps, directing you to the next relevant briefing depending on the option you choose. No dice are necessary to play, just this book and your tactical skill. 1 vol, 176 pgs 2012 UK, PEN & SWORD

1-207590 Valero, Javier Gomez PAINTING WARGAMING FIGURES Javier Gomez, a highly talented figure painter of long experience and excellent reputation, shares the secrets of his success in this accessible 'how-to' guide to painting miniatures. He takes the reader step-by-step through the whole process, from choice of materials (unlike other available guides it is not linked to any specific figure manufacturer) and preparation of the miniatures to basing and even advice on photographing the finished item.

Techniques such as dry-brushing, ink-washing, shading and highlighting are all explained clearly with the help of step-by-step photographs and color charts. Specific case studies tackle a variety of useful subjects across all periods, such as mixing realistic flesh tones for different races; painting horses; guns and limbers; Medieval heraldry; Napoleonic uniforms; WW2 and modern camouflage patterns. Javier also clearly explains how these techniques and processes can be applied to all the major wargaming scales, from 40mm down to 6mm.

Whatever historical, sci-fi, or fantasy period you paint and whatever scale you're interested in, this book is an invaluable source of practical advice and inspiration. 1 vol, 192 pgs 2015 UK, PEN & SWORD

We have our review and reporting sections: in Forward Observer and Fantasy Facts we look at some of the latest releases from Crooked Dice and Brigade Models, the Plastic Soldier Company, Army Painter and North Star with exclusive news and pictures of releases you'll find nowhere else. Our Recce section reviews 12 books covering a wide selection of topics and periods and - finally - we have our club directory and a special club report on the Falkirk District Wargames Club. 1 vol, 96 pgs 2017 UK, WARNER PUBLICATIONS

1-935075 Various WARGAMES SOLDIERS & STRATEGY: #75 The theme of this issue is 'Great Leaders of the 17th Century.' In particular, WS&S 75 will be looking at Continental Europe during this time, with attention paid to the Wars of Religion, the Netherlands' bid to be free of Spanish rule, and the conflict in Germany. Behind many of these struggles were powerful and charismatic figures, such as King Gustavus Adolphus of Sweden and Maurice of Nassau. These men not only played an important role in nation building, but were also great military innovators and reformers: much of their success came from their ability to lead men effectively and utilize armies in new ways.

For those not interested in 17th Century Europe, there are plenty of interesting non-theme articles as well. Perhaps most importantly, this issue contains the results of our Great Wargaming Survey, with lots of analysis (both graphical and otherwise). If you haven't been following along with the Great Wargaming Survey, don't forget to check out the roundup on our website. Besides the survey, other articles include a linked campaign for the Medieval Danish invasion of Gotland, a bite-size recreation of Magnesia, tips for tarting up pre-made terrain boards, and much, much more. 1 vol, 84 pgs 2014 NETHERLANDS, KARWANSARAY

1-944028 various C3i: # 28: Case Blue Includes: Unconditional Surrender! Case Blue: A 2-player game (derived from GMT's boxed game Unconditional Surrender!) that covers the World War II military campaigns fought in southern Russia from mid-1942 to early 1943. Players focus on the strategic action. Armies move and fight in an integrated movement/combat activation system. Air wings suffer reduced effectiveness based on their level of activity. And all force action and replacements are dependent on basic production system.

Also: WWII What if: The Germans had decided to rebuild the High Seas Fleet or expanded their Rockets program? The Italians had built a carrier force? The Russians traded fighters for bombers or tanks for ships? The UK or USA mobilized more ground forces, but less air and naval assets? Other countries from as small as Belgium to as large as Spain or Turkey were better prepared militarily? The boxed game Unconditional Surrender! has the counters, but the What If rules are in this magazine.
