This morning saw the arrival of my first copy of Battlefleet - the journal of the Naval Wargames Society (navalwargamessociety). I am really pleased to get this at long last - I have been a member in the past but life etc got in the way and so I have rejoined after a lengthy gap - and the articles contained therein certainly provide much food for thought. The line up for this issue (no. 1 of volume XXXIV) consists of the following:
Privateers: NWS Participation game - written by Dave Manley these are the rules for use with the game and are set in the golden age of piracy in the 18th century and are based on the GW Man O' War fantasy rules. Needless to say the denizens of SEEMS will be very interested in these!
HMS Amethyst and the Yangtze Incident
Japanese Wargaming of the Midway Campaign
WW2 Coastal Forces Scenario Generator
Exercise Tiger - Slapton Sands
Options for the Russo-Japanese War - lots of 'what-ifs?'
It is a varied bag for sure and with something for all nautical tastes.
