Issue 410 of Miniature Wargames is about to be released. What gems does it contain?

Well, let's try listing this in a different way this month:


Firstly, supplied by the folks at Modiphius Games there's an Airfix Battles exclusive. This is a scenario called Recce for their popular WW2 game giving players with the Airfix Battles Base Game and Force Deck add on the chance to run German Pumas and Allied jeeps with downloadable cards. In addition to that (and if you don't have the set already) there's a Reader Offer to save 35% on the Airfix Battles Base Game and Force Deck Bundle and even a chance to win five sets for free in a competition!


Some you win and some Zulu wars: that's a complete rule set with on line content for players to download. We have a special piece on the soon to be released Ulterior Motives with a talk about the Frostgrave add-on with author Joe McCullough plus two unique extra cards to play with! (again available to download).


We have an article on the Rules Of Engagement: this explores gaming options for asymmetric warfare on the Northwest Frontier and modern conflicts.


There's a Salute Photo report the biggest show in town get six pages of pictures and an assessment from the editor's unique perspective.


We have the first of a two-parter on Painting the Army of Gondolin using only historical figures rather than fantasy ones in the Darker Horizons section.


Our regular columnists help us with Send three and fourpence where Conrad Kinch is clearing an infestation that requires sending in the Marines and the Wargames Widow constructs some 54mm ACW buildings out of foam core and cake stand pillars!

We have our review and reporting sections: in Forward Observer and Fantasy Facts we look at some of the latest releases from Crooked Dice and Brigade Models, the Plastic Soldier Company, Army Painter and North Star with exclusive news and pictures of releases you'll find nowhere else. Our Recce section reviews 12 books covering a wide selection of topics and periods and finally we have our club directory and a special club report on the Falkirk District Wargames Club.

Painting the Army of Gondolin looks intriguing, and pretty. Looking forward to seeing the full article.
