I thought it was one of the better issues I have seen. Look forward to the next issue. Review by Jason Weiser (Posted on 3/9/2015)
General Review of WSS Magazine

Until the day my issue of WSS arrives, I feel like I'm in a cultural desert, drifting away from the hobby. This issue, as almost always from WSS, pulled me back. It's intelligent, with good quality imagery and high quality content. The other magazines fall short in comparison.

I'm still not sold on the themed issue concept, almost always that is the section I skip over. Military history is vast, and even if you have a range of interests as I do, it's still quite unlikely that any theme will match your specific interests. Fortunately, there is always enough other content of high quality.

WSS majors on two areas in particular: (1) there are always painting articles, often more than one; (2) there are usually discussions, playtests or reviews on rules and mechanisms. Combine that with good product reviews and an excellent set of regular contributors (Mr. Priestley and Mr. Clarke get special mention here) and this is why I enjoy the magazine.

Is it perfect? Of course not. The photography is very good, but the cover image never does justice to the professional painting skills of the diorama painter, which always seems a shame (really a minor complaint, but I used to work in photography so I can't help myself). And I'm starting to think there is now too many painting articles, because they are tending to be the same. I need something more than just I used this colour, then that colour, then that colour. And regarding the product reviews, the best thing about these are the product photographs and layout, but the words themselves are fairly useless and uninformative.

But overall, it is IMHO the best quality wargame magazine around, and the only one that meets my minimum standard for a subscription.
