There are a lot of new posts on the Solo Wargamers Association Lone Warrior Blog.

Pride of place is the new sample article taken from Lone Warrior magazine Issue 187 it's Rob Morgan's "Thoughts on a Dalek Army" PDF link which in reality is much more than thoughts as he builds up a mighty force of plastic Daleks with some great conversions along the way. Very cool!

Jonathan Aird takes a quick look at Osprey New Vanguard 12 BMP series PDF link .

Rob Morgan reviews Manfred Griehl's book Last Days of the Luftwaffe, which covers the in service and the "can we get this in service" aeroplanes. Looks really interesting. PDF link

Paul Le Long reviews Fortress 9 ECW fortifications PDF link and also Fortress 38 ACW field fortifications PDF link

Lone Warrior editor Rich Barbuto reviews "What If? The Anthology of Alternate History" which has a host of useful scenario and campaign ideas PDF link

Jonathan Aird has found another Hotwheels space ship USS Vengence PDF link useful, but an odd scale due to it's "fit the box" nature.

Rich Barbuto takes a detailed look at Wally Simon's Master Secrets of Wargame Design: a Toolkit of Ideas,
Analysis, and Rule Mechanics, Volume #5 PDF link , which unsurprisingly is full of good stuff!

Finally Jonathan Aird enthuses over Tabletop Gaming magazine Issue 2 great for board game and SF / F miniatures enthusiasts! PDF link

Unfair tactics: putting many interesting links just when I was planning to turn in.

For Dr. Who fans who want an inexpensive mass of Daleks, there is a Risk version where the plastic 'armies' mostly small Daleks (about as high as a d6, give or take) but with some large Daleks (as high a 2d6).

One sec…let me grab the components list…

* 1 game board (75 cm x 49 cm)
* 5 Dalek armies (classic bronze, silver, black) and New Dalek (yellow and red) --63 pieces in each army: 42 small, 15 medium and 6 large
* 10 mission cards
* 15 power cards
* 42 territory cards
* 5 dice
* 1 Clara token
* 1 TARDIS piece
* Rulebook

Hmmm. Have to go back and look at my set. Didn't recall medium Daleks….But you get a nice bunch of Daleks for $30 USD-$35 or so.
