The sixty-second issue of Line of Departure magazine is ready to start going out the door. The lead review is of Manila '45
from Strategy & Tactics
, and there's an in-depth analysis of SPI's monster The Next War
. Also, I cover British strategy in Paul Rohrbaugh's downloadable game A Master Stroke
, and present the first u-boats of the reborn kriegsmarine
, for Avalon Hill's Submarine
. The latter comes with free, downloadable counters of each and every boat of the Type I and Type II classes, available from OnLine of Departure Support
The magazine exists, and it is ready to go. If you subscribe and live in the United States, you can expect to have it in your hands by the end of the week. If you live elsewhere, give it another week or so. Now if you don't subscribe, you can purchase the issue, or a year's subscription, by downloading an order form
, or going to Line of Departure
's PayPal Page
The only fly in the ointment is that right now, Wargamer.com
is down for a move to a new server. As a result, A Master Stroke
is currently unavailable for those who don't have the game yet, but whose interest in this free product is piqued by the magazine. Also, the countersheet of u-boats for Submarine
is similarly unavailable, as it is housed on Wargamer.com's ftp server.
I can do something about the latter though. The countersheet is small enough to be attached here, so players can get their u-boats without waiting.
