This is my second WSS, previous edition I really liked and this one aswell. I didn't know a lot about the period, but the brief history lesson taught me something, which I think is one of the great things in this hobby. The photos are also a joy to watch, gave me some inspirtation for future projects. Also liked the columns/tutorials, overall just a great magazine and will definitely recommend it to my wargaming friends. Review by Rogier (Posted on 3/27/2014)

This issue didn't disappoint, just like every other one! I'm not too familiar with this month's theme, but I found everything to be very informative, and well researched/put together. Has me considering Spanish Conquistadors.... I usually flip to the model range section first, just to see all the shiny toys by scale, then backtrack to the rest of the articles.

Another great job, keep them coming!

As always WSS delivers a very good product. Even though I don't game the period that makes this month's highlight, as I read through the magazine I considered it thanks to the scenarios, reviews, etc. Good job!

As I said in another review, the articles from the regular contributors are always a joy to read.

Another very impressive issue with a great choice of topics, reviews and hints.

Especially Gary Mitchell's article on the conquest of the new world is very informative and so well written that I might use some quotes in my history lessons. And having an author take a one sentence look at the ACW from a Marxist perspective and quote Star Trek in the next paragraph is immensely enjoyable.

But my secret favourite in WSS have always been the columns which I usually read first as I am fascinated by the insights of these long-time gamers and designers, as I'm very interested in the design process as well. And in this issue, the columns are once again very well done.

While I was reading the issue I found myself alternatingly laughing out loud and then again looking breathlessly at beautiful pictures of wonderfully painted miniatures.

To sum it up, a jolly good read!
