Yes, all that's new and shiny over on the Lone Warrior Blog run by the Solo Wargamers Association. Quite a lot new since the last blog update!

Mike Crane reviews Ships and Seamen of the American Revolution by Jack Coggins PDF link and gives it the seal of approval.

Rob Morgan notes some late uses of slings and rock throwers in the 17th century link an interesting possibility for Spanish Renaissance gamers.

Rob Morgan also reviews Osprey MAA 125 The Armies of Islam 7th-11th Centuries PDF link and approves in general and particularly the section on tactics as especially useful to the wargamer.

Nic Birt contributes a very interesting piece on a visit to the Golan Heights link

September's sample article is Kevin White's ACW ruleset The Blue and The Grey designed for a grided play area PDF link Looks great with the illustrations of cardboard flat figures. This originally appeared in Lone Warrior Magazine Issue 189.

Jonathan Aird reviews the Attack Track missile launcher from Marchbox PDF link pretty useful for SF gamers!

Rob Morgan discusses experimental WWI tanks link and a range of (rather pricey!) models of some of them.

Mike Crane adds a review of another Jack Coggins book Arms and Equipment of the Civil War PDF link which still has a lot going for it.

Rob Morgan picks out two short topics for naval wargamers link

And Jonathan Aird reviews Osprey's General History of the Vikings PDF link a useful amalgam of material from several Osprey titles, with additional photos and text all for the bargain price of £10.00 GBP and in hardback!

Another bumper crop of reading hopefully something for everyone. The ACW rules are well worth a look for a fast and fun game.
