Magazine article in praise of imagi-nations

Over the weekend I bought a copy of WARGAMES, SOLDIERS & STRATEGY at the Bluewater branch of WHSmith. Unlike MINIATURE WARGAMES WITH BATTLEGAMES, which I get every month, I only buy WARGAMES, SOLDIERS & STRATEGY when it has a theme that interests me. This particular issue’s theme was Operation Market Garden … and as my father was a member of an airborne unit (but not one that took part in this particular military operations) I decided to buy it.

One article that was not related to this issue’s theme but which I really enjoyed reading was Otto Schmidt’s TO FOURDOOR WHERE THE SUNNY DAYS LAY. This is written in Otto’s familiar style, and extolled the virtues of fun wargaming using imagi-nations … something that I wholeheartedly agree with.

One thing that I particularly liked about this article was the photograph that accompanied it. The Freedonian tank is the sort of design that I would have come up with, combining as it does the hull of a Russian T-26 tank with the running gear of a German Pzkpfw III, topped off with a large cylindrical turret of unknown origin.

Simply marvellous!

    I may have to pick this one up. I grabbed a random issue of the magazine at some stage and wasn't all that impressed with it compared to what else is on offer.

  2. Arquinsiel,

    I think that this issue would certainly merit a quick look through it before you decide whether or not to buy a copy.

    All the best,

    As it turns out, it's not on the shelves of any of the local book merchants. Ah well.

  4. Arquinsiel,

    That is surprising news. My local news agent had a whole stack of them.

    All the best,
