Balkans 1919 from Miniature Warfare June 1972



Nowadays when a range of figures for most conflicts you can think of exist somewhere in some scale or other, it is hard to remember earlier times when conversions, paint jobs and imagination were often required. Anything outside the mainstream seemed unbelievabley exotic. This article fitted the bill - I always likesd the picture of Airfix 1914 infantrymen in Pontoon Bridge boats attacking.

I remember this article, and it was one of the things that influenced my interest in warfare in the Balkans.

All the best,

I'd completely forgotten about this one but I've just pulled out my copy to have a look and now I do remember those photos. I really like the British WWI gun with the doughboys in support. Good stuff - also an article on wargaming at West Point!
