I got my PDF copy of Battlefleet by email this week and I thought I'd give a shout out to a couple of fellow bloggers involved in this production.
First of all, what is Battlefleet? Well it's a damn fine publication and it's the journal of the Naval Wargames Society. And it's a steal of a deal at £4 for an annual electronic subscription as its pages are chock full of useful articles and game ideas if you have any Naval inclinations at all. Even if you are too cheap to put out the £4 you should check out their website which has great links, scenarios and a newsletter All Guns Blazing, all of which are (as my father in law would put it) free, gratis and at no additional charge.
And yes, the editor of Battlefleet did ask Curt, Sylvain and I to submit an article for a future issues based on our latest convoy game. But don't let that discourage you from the publication - I'll admit that I had a bit of a Groucho Marx moment and wondered if I should be reading a journal that would accept me as an author! But heck no they have much higher standards than that.
Ok the two bloggers are
- Jeff at http://forhonourssake.blogspot.ca/ who has stepped up and taken the editor's role for the NWS - great first issue Jeff; and
- David at http://dtbsam.blogspot.ca/ who contributed an article on a WW2 Med based action for General Quarters. Good article David, I expect that I'll be subjecting my local gamers to a raid on Genoa shortly!
