Wargames Soldiers and Strategy 90

I have a little bit in the latest edition of Wargames, Soldiers and Strategy, although if you blinked you'd probably miss it. I submitted an article on the De Havilland DH5 which was a bit late and didn't make it into the 1917 theme section, mainly due to the fact that there are two really good articles on aerial warfare already included.

Anyway, the editor did use a couple of hundred words from my blurb in the introductory article and was nice enough to credit me, so I now have something published in the mainstream wargaming press (even if they spelt my name incorrectly). I also got a bit of pocket money and a free copy of the magazine, which was a bonus and much appreciated. Thanks Guy.

I'll get my act together next time and submit something well ahead of the deadline so hope to get a proper article published, if it's good enough, at some point in the not too distant future. This issue is actually really good and you should check out the 2mm Siege of Portsmouth article by Mark Backhouse in particular, as it is well worth it if only for the stonking terrain.


  1. Well done - looking forward to reading it when i pick up the magazine

  2. Good job Jim. I'm sure the DH5 article will be in print soon too. Thanks for the thumbs up on the 2mm article too.

  3. Well done :) Mark brought his "siege of Portsmouth" game to the Naval Wargames Weekend last year. As you say, lovely terrain and a fun game to play as well.

  4. Good show! WSS is the only hobby magazine I pay attention to these days.
