Oh dear, I've been rather lax with the updates so this is going to be quite a long list of what's been posted over on the Solo Wargamers Association Lone Warrior blog.

Rob Morgan is pleased wiyh a boardgame find in the shape of Armada link which as well as being a useful game, possibly for a naval campaign also has some nice ship models

Jonathan Aird takes a look at a couple of Ospreys MAA 508 World War II Croatian Legionaries PDF link and Weapon 43 The Composite Bow PDF link both have some useful aspects for the wargamer.

Mike Crane offers up some ideas for more games with less money link and this includes paper figures which look really nice.

Rob Morgan quite neatly dovetails with that idea by talking about a naval game he set up with converted ships boats models making up the fleets. link Which might help Jonathan Aird in his dream project Lepanto PDF link , an article reprinted from lone Warrior magazine issue 189 (although he does seem to be quite well down the Navwar route!)

Derel Clark reviews The Damascened Blade by Barbara Cleverly PDF link set on the North West Frontier it's an inspirational read for pulp gamers.

Campaigns and Imaginations is By Jeffrey G. Chorney
and was originally published in Lone Warrior 195 PDF link and provides a checklist of things to consider before setting that solo campaign in motion!

Rob Morgan describes his Ostfront riverine fleets link in 1/300th scale

Bob Stewart and Graham Empson discuss the future of Solo Wargaming in a world full of other distractions link

Derek Clark has more slightly offbeat this time NWF inspiration in the form of the Wolf of Kabul comic strip PDF link

A real gem here and a blast from the past in the shape of the full PDF of Lone Warrior Issue 10. Yes ! Every single one of the 15 hand-typed pages from March 1977. Nostalgia your name is LW Issue 10 PDF link

Rob Morgan offers a converted ACW ship with an observation balloon as the Most Useless Warship in History link

And Jonathan Aird likes Tie Strikers Ground attack craft. Especially when they only cost £1.00 GBP link

A fair bit of diversity something for everyone it's to be hoped. Now read on !

Cool, thanks for share and including links. I'm a regular on the solo RPG side of the fence and it good to see solo gaming in other forms.
