Well, a whole month of updates to catch up on from November – and the first items from this month as well.

The new sample article of the month was Company Commander 3 by David Newport PDF link taken from Issue 185 of Lone Warrior. It follows a German company across the hazards of the Russian campaigns.

Paul Le Long reviews Osprey Campaign 288 Taranto PDF link – it's a quality book, which is pretty much a given with Angus Konstam as the author.

Rob Morgan reviews Osprey Elite 30 Attila and the nomad hordes PDF link – and feels it maybe throws its net too wide.

Rich Barbuto recalls The Model Soldier Guide PDF link from 1965 which although focused on large figures had plenty of tips for the wargamer as well.

Paul Le Long has a look at Osprey MAA 416 German Armies 1870-71 (1): Prussia PDF link : a great book for uniforms, less informative on what they were doing in 1870-71! However he finds Campaign 287 PDF link Tippecanoe 1811: The Prophet's Battle a much better prospect for the wargamer & the interested historian.

Rob Morgan discusses a colourful unit of the Russian Civil War – with photos of re-enactors link

Jonathan Aird makes the case for supporting that little local show – you might buy something & you could get a game in as well! That's what they call a win-win! link

Finally, but not least in any way, Nic Birt discusses his Golan Heights campaign game, with the prospect for PBEM. Sounds interesting : link

That should keep us busy for most of this month…
