In one of those bizarre occurrences that has made 2020 a year of, well, bizarre occurrences, PHLPOST managed to deliver my July/August copy of Slingshot to the Makati Office last week, where they had delivered the September/October copy to my home in Angeles City the week before (see PHLPOST comes through — Slingshot Arrives).
To be fair, I guess the backlog being cleared is greater in Metro Manila that here in the province so maybe a bit slower. Still, the important thing is the read, and another cracking read it is.
Topics in it include:
- Honour and Loss – Phil Sabin recounts his long and stimulating acquaintance with Patrick Waterson
- Sumerian Military Camel Riders
- What a Wheelie – Chariots anyone?
- In the Lab with Legions – How does one model the triplex acies legion on the gaming table?.
- Making 15mm Siena Military Companies
- Refighting Cannae
- Aquae Sextiae with DBA
- plus the usual Guardroom, book and rules reviews and figure reviews
Just the thing to read on a cold winter’s night here where the temperature has plummeted to 24 degrees Celsius.
