As you can see from this month’s cover, my ancestors were hard working entrepreneurs who strove to deliver a quality product to customers at a reasonable price. This is a family tradition I try to uphold and I think it’s been achieved with this bumper issue. If you buy magazines by their thickness, you can’t fail to be impressed by this month’s 112 page issue, the largest that has ever been published in MW’s 28 year history. Of course, size isn’t everything and it’s the quality of the articles that really count. Inside this month, not only will you find the full and exclusive official guide to Salute - which is also packed with articles even if you are not going to the show – but also an exclusive preview scenario from ForceonForce, the new modern rules from Osprey and Ambush Alley Games, plus a challenging ACW scenario to tie in with next month’s anniversary of the start of that conflict and plenty more to keep you happy.
Needless to say, the MWteam will be at Salute in London on 16 April and I look forward to seeing as many of you there as possible. We’ll also have the hot off the press May issue on sale there at a special, one day only price for show visitors so make sure you don’t miss out.
