There are many different reasons to enjoy the hobby of miniature wargaming. For example, the satisfaction of building and painting models yourself, the fun of battling other people, and for those who enjoy the fantasy and sci-fi aspect, deep and involving fictional worlds to explore. There’s also the pride of taking part in competitions and events, and showing off your tactical skills and modelling proficiency.
Here at Newsstand however, though we do appreciate all of those things, we believe that the main draw in recreating historical battles is to prove that we are better than those generals. That’s right, we love to take control of the losing side, marshal a group of broken and dispirited men (or models) and change the course of history. Napoleon? Bah, what did he know? Our skills and tactical nous obviously far exceed that of the little leader of the Grande Armee. We love risky strategies, taking chances that may well not work out, but might, just might result in a glorious victory.
It should come as no surprise to any seasoned wargamer out there (by that we mean experienced rather than flavoured with an array of spices and herbs) that, on the whole, generally speaking and so on, we lose. All the time. But hey, everyone loves a gracious loser. NB
