The latest “Special” from TooFatLardies pinged into my email inbox a few minutes ago. These Specials come out twice a year – in Summer and Christmas – and are a great read and excellent value for money. Think of them as an online wargaming magazine which is really focusing on getting games onto the table, and how they’re played.
OK, OK….I admit it, I am very biased as you will know. That being said, speaking honestly, this edition is a cracker and I doubt you will be disappointed if you buy a copy.
The Summer Special can be purchased for the very reasonable price of £6.00 – which is two large cappuccinos in London money - and can be purchased at the TooFatLardies online store HERE.
