Miniature Wargames magazine gets a new website

new website
You may well have noticed that news that Miniature Wargames with Battlegames magazine has a new website.

This is a shared resource with Warner’s other gaming hobby publication, Tabletop Gaming. The website has separate sections for Boardgames, Miniatures Games and Historical Games

Luckily, we recorded the latest View from the Veranda podcast just after Henry Hyde got back from his visit to Warners, and so we discuss the details and implications of this change as part of the next show…

…which is coming to  a podcast feed near you very soon(ish)

  1. Nice clean layout. Has some unavoidable overlap between the Board Games, Miniatures Games & Historical Games sections, which can seem a bit confusing initially, but makes more sense the deeper you browse the site, eg the Claymore event article appears in all 3 sections because potentially it caters for each, and the review of Soldiers of God is in both the Miniatures and Historical sections. And so on.
    Has a very modern look and feel about it.
    The Miniature Wargames with Battlegames section has been reduced to only giving the barest bones of each issue, which is a retrograde step compared with its previous incarnation. Room for improvement there.
    Cheers

  2. Re my last comment on the information provided for each issue of Miniature Wargames with Battlegames, compare the way it ‘was’:
    http://miniaturewargames.co.uk/?p=550
    with the info now provided on the new site:
    https://www.tabletopgaming.co.uk/historical-games/store/back-issues/miniature-wargames/miniature-wargames-february-2016-issue-394

    Perhaps the plan is to shortly add some flesh to the skeleton? Or perhaps not, as the Tabletop Gaming publication *currently* shares the same fate.

    If I’m missing some crucial aspect in all of this, I’m all ears. 🙂

    • Well, the old Miniature Wargames site is still up until they get all the content transferred over, but yes, I agree that this new site has something of a ‘work in progress’ vibe about it.
