Get an issue of Battlegames for free…

For reasons unknown, I appear to have two copies of the latest issue of Battlegames magazine, so I thought I’d give one away.

So, if you’d like to have the latest copy of this magazine – especially if you’ve never read it and are maybe wondering what all the fuss is about – then please reply with a comment to this post.

Closing day is St. George’s Day (April 23rd) – after which I randomly select one person from the list, who will get the mag…OK?

    For me Battlegames is a mag for the Practical minded wargamer. Not just mainstream wargaming with glossy rulebooks and the like, but more do it youself wargaming. Fun in doing what you like, inventing and going new ways. Maybe that is what Old School is all about..

    • Hi, I’ve just stumbled upon your site throught the link of another blogger which is connected to the TGN Blog Network! I would really like to get the magazine as wargame magazines are pretty scarce around here with the exception of white dwarfs or the french “savage” magazine.

    For me oldschool wargaming projects an image of people who are not afraid too adapt a game to their liking, people who can make a cardcounter with the word “boat” on it when they discover that they need one in a game, compared too waiting for an “official”, expensive one being made. People who “own” their hobby.

  3. I would love to have a copy of Battlegames!

  4. Always love the View from the Veranda and the long-winded (and insightful) Henry Hyde.
    Also looking forward to Force on Force and recently started playing Impetus.
    Thanks for all the great information from you and Battlegames!

    • Long winded? Fuff fuff! I think the Major might have somethin’ to say about that! Gadzooks, man, a chap needs to take his time to explain what he thinks, and so forth, dontcha know? Good lord, never hear anythin’ like it… 😉

    I’d love a copy of Battlegames! Oh and when is the next View from the Veranda? Both M&M and View are at the top of my podcast list and are perfect for those long hours sitting at my desk painting my wee lads.

    I have not read Battlegames before and would appreciate the chance to read a copy before I made a decision on whether to subscribe or not.

    Listened to the podcast since the very early days. Tempted again and again to grab an issue of Battlegames, but a new born baby has drained my excess gaming money faster than I could imagine.

    Would love a free copy If I get lucky !

  9. Enter me in the draw please.

    I have been trying to get back into wargaming after a 15 year break.
    Most of the wargames magazines on sale in W H Smiths seem to sponsored by a a company pushing it’s products or system. (Which do not interest me!)

    Is independent Battlegames magazine a better and more thought provoking read?

    • In a word, Yes.

      And it is a read, as opposed to several lines of text linking pictures together.

      You may also be interested to know that another wargames magazine, Wargames, Soldiers & Strategy, is re-released in the UK this weekend. This promises to be another quality wargames magazine – especially as it’s published by the same people that produce the Ancient Warfare mag.

  11. I would be interested in a paper copy to see what could possibly be worth 8 packs of Baccus Marians……

    That and every time Henry starts grumbling on about rules sets and figure snobbery, I find myself nodding in agreement and making the occasional vocal outburst in support, both of which attract more than a few odd looks from passers-by on my walk into work. I will need reading material for when they put me away.

    Finally, any such magazine would find a place of honour in the reading rack in the bathroom (trans. the loo) along with The Economist, Victorian Homes and The Steampunk’s guide to the Apocalypse.
