Editor’s Exploits episode 32 – Covering cover art
Wargames Illustrated Magazine
by Daniel Faulconbridge
1w ago
Do you like the cover artwork for our April magazine (see below)? I do, but then I would, because I commissioned it, and it’s by one of my favourite artists working in the hobby: Neil Roberts. Neil has been knocking out cover illustrations for us since October 2017, and we’ve managed to secure his services again for 2024. Not for every issue though, unfortunately. Neil now has a full-time job working in the video games industry, so he will just be providing us with six covers this year. As well as our magazine covers Neil also did the brush (and tablet and stylus) work for the cover to our Med ..read more

Partizan Press – Setting the East Ablaze: 3rd and Final Edition review Hot off the press comes the third (and, we are assured, final) edition of the popular Setting the East Ablaze (StEA) wargames rules. Produced by Partizan Press, the rules comes as a soft cover A4 book that runs to 117 full-colour, photo-packed pages.

North Star – Oathmark Human Militia review A new box set of plastics has arrived for use in Oathmark: Battles of the Lost Age, adding to the sizable range that North Star produce for the Joe McCullough /Osprey Games system. This one brings lighter-armed and armoured humans to the fantasy meets history game and, as with many Oathmark sets, its parts can be used in building figures for various other fantasy games too. Included are six matching frames with enough parts to build 30 figures, along with square bases to mount them on. There are certainly similarities here to the existing Human Infant ..read more

Osprey Games – Frostgrave: Mortal Enemies review

Osprey Games – Frostgrave: Mortal Enemies review If there’s one thing every good hero needs, it’s a great enemy. Would anyone care about grumpy ol’ Batman without the Joker? Would John McClane have done much beyond making fists with his toes if it wasn’t for Hans Gruber? Who would care about a cupboarded kid with a scar on his head if it wasn’t for a camp, noseless Ralph Fiennes opposing him? The wizarding heroes of Frostgrave’s world have faced innumerable dangers, but they’ve never been pitted against a true arch-nemesis… until now! Mortal Enemies is a new expansion that is primarily based o ..read more

James previews some of the new STL files we’re preparing for WiPrime Members and looks ahead to some magazine content we’re working on. We’re getting fresh WiDigital models sculpted right now, after taking a break over the holidays and reassessing the direction this part of our WiPrime offering should take. Assorted late Medieval warriors, packed with character, are a part of what’s being produced, along with some unique individuals from history to fit into our Giants in Miniature range. You can see some of the work-in-progress shots of them below. When we first launched WiDigital it was an ex ..read more
