Wargames Illustrated 393 - September 2020
(WI393)


QUICK FIRE!
Quick Fire is a new (and hopefully expanding) feature in which we present short, quick-read posts from Wi readers about their hobby projects and observations.
 
OBSERVATION POST
Your monthly round-up of new product releases in the hobby.
 
FULL PAPER JACKET
Our new look, wargamer friendly, military history book preview column.
 
THEME: DESIGNER’S NOTES: NEVER MIND THE BILLHOOKS
‘Billhooks’ Games Designer Andy Callan gives us the inside track on your free Wars of the Roses ruleset.
 
THE PRESSURES OF COMMAND PART 2
In the second part of his article on Command and Control, Pete Brown looks at overhauling how we approach the topic in our wargames.
 
 THEME: FEUDS, RAIDS AND ANARCHY
Beyond the big bashes of the Wars of the Roses like Towton and Bosworth, there were countless smaller battles and big skirmishes. Simon MacDowall introduces us to some of these wargame-able “Deadly Brawls”.
 
SAND AND GRAVEL
Swedish model making maestro Jan Karrman hails the use of cheap sand in terrain making.
 
NEVER MIND THE BILLHOOKS – HERE’S THE PAINTING GUIDE
Steve Wood provides an easy ‘wargames standard’ painting guide aimed at getting your forces battle ready for Never Mind the Billhooks in super-quick time.
 
HINTERLAND STRATEGY
The first article in this short series (Wi392) looked at the crusaders’ coastal strategy in the Holy Land. In this article Professor Steve Tibble leads us into the next phase of the Crusaders’ military activity – the ‘hinterland strategy’ that broadly ran from 1125 – 1153.
 
Theme: WARS OF THE ROSES WARGAMES ARMIES
Simon MacDowall continues this month’s theme content with a beginners guide to Wars of the Roses armies.
 
CONVERSIONS MASTERCLASS
Bob Amey has been converting figures man and boy for over 40 years. In this article he shares his wealth of experience, with a focus on his 15mm Ancients collection.
 
DESIGNER’S NOTES: SWORDPOINT 2
Gripping Beast have just released the second edition of their large scale ancient and medieval battle rules Swordpoint. We asked the rules writer, Martin Gibbins, to tell us “why?”.
 
WHY I LOVE: SCIENCE VS PLUCK
For our irregular “Why I Love …” series Pete Brown shares his affection for the umpire-led Colonial rules Science versus Pluck.
 
BYRCHO’S CELESTICHORD
The recent release of Frostgrave: Second Edition prompted us to give friend of the magazine and Frostgrave author Joseph A. McCullough a prod and ask him to supply us with a new and exclusive scenario.
 
PAINTING LORD CALLAN
In tribute to the author of Never Mind the Billhooks, for our latest Giants in Miniature figure release we present Lord Callan; fearless fighting commander of the Wars of the Roses  the perfect frontman for your ‘Billhooks’ army.
 
COMPANY PROFILE: CIBO’S LITTLE DUDES
