Battlegames News


Henry over at Battlegames has announced that the magazine, and hence him, are having financial difficulties.

Read more at the link.

I did my bit today, buying a few back issues and a couple of PDFs. A small thing, but it is what I can afford right now. Feeling saddened by this news as I only just found the magazine in the last six months, and have enjoyed every issue.

  1. I echo your sadness, Battlegames is a great magazine in the spirit of Practical Wargamer etc. Whilst I like and buy WI, Battlegames was the ideal antidote to the WI "ooh shiny" approach to wargaming...

  2. As someone who has every issue (save #1, which I have in PDF format) sitting on my shelf, I feel your pain. In a world where wargame magazines were either 'catalogs with the price of a magazine' or 'what? You don't know anything about the War of Jenkin's Ear? you damn kids have no damn respect for damn history!' snobbery, BG was a refreshing voice that (at least in my fevered imagination) represented 'the rest of us' in the wargaming community.

  3. And Henry is such a nice chap too. Also, I wanted to write for the magazine, but this is a lost opportunity now.

    So i click over to Battlegames, because anything you're THIS passionate about must be pretty good.
    I was blown away.

    Henry has posted that there is a chance for a third party to step in...

  5. All fingers crossed, as are toes etc. Henry is really nice, and if you haven't taken the time to listen to the View from the Veranda podcasts I suggest they are well worth one's time.

    It's available on iTunes, or here:

    If you prefer a different means of access.
