Oh, dear…more than a month since the last update ! So…there's a lot!

So, what's new over on the Lone Warrior blog, the official blog of the Solo Wargamers Association?

In a first we have compare and contrast reviews of the Hot Wheels Star Destroyer model. Rob Morgan thinks it's a nice model and very useful PDF link , Jonathan Aird thinks it's a nice model with limited uses PDF link . Both agree it is good value for money at current prices !

Russ Lockwood offers a play through of a full campaign of Risk – Legacy PDF link : this is 22 pages of fun reading and photos! Great article Russ!

Rob Morgan takes a look at the pre-painted vessels for Sails of Glory – link – very nice, maybe a little pricey.

Jonathan Aird was not impressed by Osprey Warrior 180 Early Iron Age Greek Warrior 1100-700BC PDF link where what "the authors have actually achieved is to make a fascinating topic rather dull and dusty". Pity. However, Warrior 181 PDF link British Commando 1940-45 is "Highly inspiring, and well worth getting hold of".

Rob Morgan offers some information on the Maxson mount link for 4 Browning MGs. He also has some pictures of a D-Day Centaur Mark IV link now used as a plinth based monument.

Jonathan Aird thought he'd seen every possible GW spin-off, until he encountered the WH40K novels partwork. Nice looking books. PDF link

Rob Morgan reviews a Peter Pig ACW ship link with a lot of potential.

And finally – Jonathan Aird also provides the sample article of the month : A Dr. Who Battle Using Imperial Commander PDF link which is taken from Lone Warrior magazine Issue 191.

Lots of varied topics I hope we can all agree !

Actually, thanks for the intro to the word 'partwork'; I was well familiarized with the serialized format, but had never seen that particular term.

As for the product itself, I'll be asking our store manager as to if he's heard of it coming to the US.

Otherwise, to your last point, I certainly agree!
