Are Painted Minis Essential to Miniatures Wargaming?
Inspired by Sam Mustafa’s column in Wargames, Soldiers, and Strategy issue 71 (Buy the PDF) Jonathan editorializes on the the necessity, or lack thereof, of painted miniatures. As a current non-painter Jonathan approaches the question of “What exactly is our hobby?”
In Jonathan’s editorial he discussed his 1/72 scale (20mm) Imperial Roman project for Hail Caesar. Photos of the project can be found on the Wargaming Recon Facebook page.
- We shared an interesting cat photo on our Facebook page. Visitors were asked to caption it. Many funny and unique captions were submitted.
- Listener Andrew asked a question about the history of American Wargaming. Jonathan suggests listeners try episodes Russ Lockwood Game Designer & Editor and More Secrets of Wargame Design for a glimpse into American wargaming’s past.
