Might any of you Stollen regulars have. . .

Issues #1, #2, #8, and #10 of Miniature Wargames from the early 80s gathering dust? Better yet, would you be willing to part with them for a REASONABLE price? I am trying to complete the first year of this magazine, which began life as the Battlegames of its time, and these are the issues I still need. Please let me know. Alternately, I might be persuaded to part with at least some of the old Wargames Illustrated issues in my pile, from the late 80s and/or sporadic issues from the 1990s, in exchange for those old issues of MW. We now return you to your regularly scheduled programming.

Haven't they started to do the early issues on CD, Stokes??? Would that meet the collecting requirement or must they be real paper copies??? :o))

That's right! Thanks, Steve. That might be just the ticket.

Best Regards,

Stokes

#10 has an article by Charles Grant titled "The Best of Enemies" about their family's 18th century wars.

Issue No 1 was like a eureka moment for me when I saw it in a newsagents in deepest Shropshire all those years ago. Peter Gilder's Napoleonic carabinier regiment in all its glory. Best of luck with the hunt. From memory though the photo was reversed as the swords were all in their left hands. I'll dig it out tonight.

As I recall, I had a personal interest in Number 2. Back in the mid 70s I developed a terrain system for use in a campaign in Liverpool. As a Regional Organiser to the Nations I used this as an alternative Ancients terrain in (I think) 1978. I basically then 'retired' from wargames until Liverpool held the Nationals jointly with Stockport - had to go there, of course, and it was my sons first convention. He was in a pram at the time, so didn't really take part. The surprise was that I hadn't noticed that they were using a development of my system until John Sharples wrote an article about it and it appeared in Number 2....
