As a wee treat to myself, I picked up this months Wargames Illustrated. The primary reason was the Steppe Tribes battle board and faction rules for Saga that are in this issue. Actually a bit of a sore point, I lost the Byzantine rules during one of this years frequent house moves, now I'll have to actually buy another book to get them. Not this time. Don't envisage collecting a Nomad warband, but you never know.
I lost interest in WI when I gave up playing Flames of War and that, coupled with a few themes I didn't enjoy, means I haven't bought WI in months. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by the content this issue.
The theme of the issue, the Philadelphia campaign, really doesn't do anything for me, but the coverage isn't as exhaustive as it has been in the past. I really enjoyed the Longstreet designer notes, articles on the English Civil and First Chechen War and found the modelling article useful. I even found the Flames of War battle report relatively engaging.
Although I don't see myself picking it up every month (I get every issue of the excellent Wargames, Soldiers & Strategy,) I'll make sure and have a closer look at future issues.
