WI272

Just a quick heads up about the new issue of Wargames Illustrated. Managed to get a copy, and this is the first issue to have a Napoleonic theme since the magazine's revamp and I have to say it's worth the £4 price tag.

You get a free copy of the out of print Osprey Men at Arms title 'Napoleon's Guard Infantry 1', and if that isn't motivation enough, the Napoleonic articles are interesting and have a kind of theme running through them about wilhelm von Dornberg and his exploits throughout the wars, from humble origins with the Hessians upto an allied cavalry command at Quatre Bras and Waterloo. There's also a look at the Kingdom of Westphalia.
