Wargames Illustrated is under new(ish) management
As of 1 April 2015, Wargames Illustrated Limited is now under the sole ownership of Dan Faulconbridge. Dan has been editing Wargames Illustrated for 10 years, and has now taken over ownership from Peter Simunovich and former Managing Editor John Paul Brisigotti. We know the magazine will be in very safe hands. 
Wargames Illustrated

The magazine’s close relationship with Battlefront will continue. The two companies will still share premises in Nottingham, Wargames Illustrated will still feature top quality Flames Of War articles on a regular basis, and Battlefront will still distribute the magazine. Dan and his team will continue to ‘illustrate wargames’ to the highest possible standards.

You can read the announcement from Wargames Illustrated here…

Like you, we look forward to seeing what great things the future holds for this iconic wargaming magazine.

Plastic Fantastic - Modelling Gallery highlights
Maybe we say this too often, but we're proud of our growing range of plastic models. This week we take a close look at the work of two talented painters who have been kind enough to show off their skills in our forum.

WWPD: The Great Train Robbery
Eric 'Tarzan' Lauterbach's Soviet partisans take on Bob Rossi's German grenadier company with a full armoured train. From the writing, one gets the sense that Eric is still smarting from the asymetrical match-up, but the photos tell the story of a wonderfully thematic match-up.
