Lone Warrior 186 will soon be on the way out, and what an issue it is. One key feature is "pre-planned scenarios", and that's a real boon to the Solo Wargamer.

That sounds really interesting. How would one go about getting a copy?

Have a look on the SWA's Lone Warrior blog – there's details there on how to get either a paper or a PDF subscription.

Older copies are available as single PDF purchases – I'm not sure how long you'd need to wait for this to be an "older copy" grin

An advantage of the PDFs is that you get colour pictures (the print magazine has B&W to keep costs down). Another advantage is that a year's PDF subscription is $10 USD less (IIRC).

I'll second Terrement's advice – received my PDF copy of Lone Warrior today, full of interesting reading. You won't regret it!

I'm biased – I've been in the SWA and subbing to LW for…err…I guess about 25 years. So they must be doing something right…always a good read.
