Glad to see so many know of it and have fond memories. I can say that for me it had a bigger impact then Featherstone, or Chandler. I think the contributions of the gamers in the Midwest are overshadowed by the contributions of those who started HMGS and are more visible in the East. American Wargaming has been influenced by many outside the Capital beltway. Sometimes we in the East forget that.

What impact on you did Wargamer's Digest by Gene McCoy play in your discovery of the hobby? I am on the Yahoo! Group about the magazine, and have been collecting older copies since I subscribed back in the early 70s. I am attempting to gauge the impact of the magazine on the hobby of historical miniature gaming. I think there might be a case to include Gene in the HMGS Legion. Many of us came out of the Midwest (I was in school in Central Illinois at the time), and we had a large following of folks who read or wrote for the magazine on a regular basis. Many of those earlier gamers are now well known in the hobby.
