Historical Miniature Gamer Magazine
There is a new publication out for miniature wargamers. It's called "Historical Miniature Gamer Magazine." The magazine is a result of the merger of two older magazines, "The Courier" and "MWAN." I encourage everyone to support the hobby by looking for it at your local gaming shop. If you don't have one, you might want to consider ordering it at: http://www.hmgmagazine.com.
And while you are at it, check out the article in Issue 4, page 28, called "A Little Story Goes a Long Way." It is a very nice piece by Chuck Turnitsa on how to weave a storyline into a game scenario. Best of all, the photos that accompany the article were produced by my son Andrew. He signed up to play in one of Chuck Turnitsa's games called "Springtime in the Sudan" at Historicon 2005. Chuck is a great game master and Andrew said it was the best game scenario he had ever seen. (See Andrew's" After Action Report in our August 2005 Archives.) Chuck saw that Andrew was taking pictures of the action and asked for copies. Little did he know that they would be used in a magazine article. I hope you get a chance to see the magazine some time.
