Wargames, Soldiers & Strategy, 101, Apr-May 2019

The latest edition of Wargames, Soldiers & Strategy is also currently in production. Continuing with the (unintentional) medieval theme of this newsletter, issue 101 takes a look at the ever-popular world of the Vikings, with a special focus on battles and combat from epic and legendary sources. From Beowulf to the Battle of Maldon, this issue offers Viking fans scenarios to suit every taste. Off-topic articles include a campaign for the WWII invasion of Singapore, Robert the Bruce at Loudoun Hill, and a look at Warlord's new fantasy ruleset, appropriately titled Warlords of Erehwon.
