As you know, many of the old Napoleonic publications have ceased to be, much to all of our dismay. And, so many that remain are so expensive that they are not affordable, especially in these trying times. I produce a small e-mail wargame magazine, Old Soldiers Magazine by name, that is not dedicated solely to wargaming. I am a historian by training with degrees in history and foreign affairs, and I have a keen interest in Napoleonic Era history. I have in fact written several articles on these topics for Old Soldiers Magazine. Not all of these articles have been wargame specific, some have been straight history, for instance the Napoleon's Marshals Column which has been quite popular.
It has been my purpose to create a magazine that is dedicated not only to supporting the old out of print wargame and wargamer, and the small wargame companies, but also to History. I purposefully include pure history articles in my magazine because I wish the magazine to be a much more rich experience for subscribers. To that end, I'd like to invite you all to subscribe (subscriptions are FREE !!) , and more importantly to write articles, large and small upon such esoteric things as Davout's administration of Hamburg, or Junot in Italy, or the difference between the British 32 lb cannon and the French 36 lber., you get the idea. And, if you wish to link such articles to specific wargames, well, feel free to do that too. And, maybe, perhaps, you all will create within the covers of Old Soldiers a new magazine, that serves all of our varied interests with the articles you write.
So, I'm extending a personal invitation to you to subscribe to the magazine. It's a quarterly e-mail production. Gets sent directly to your e-mail box every Jan 1, Apr. 1, July 1, and Oct. 1 (of course I'm usually a couple of weeks early, especially with the Jan issue which has always been released on or about the 15th of Dec. so players can have what's in its contents for their Christmas gaming).
If you drop me a note at this address firstname.lastname@example.org
, I'll add you to the subscriber's list (again, it's FREE) and I'll forward the last issue. I'll attach my catalog of mounted game counter variants, supplements, etc. …. You may find some of the things in that useful if you are also wargamers. And, you might find it useful to know that I do custom wargame artwork for people who are designing their own games and wish to submit prototypes to wargame companies, or for people who simply want hard mounted counters for their favorite DTP game, or even for players whose eyes are not what once they were and need larger numbers and counters.
Sorry for being so "windy" as we say in America, and Thanks Much for taking the time to read this.
