Imagine the feeling when you position your tanks, engines idling, landing gear deployed for a low profile, with firing solutions along a key bottleneck. Then some fether lands a dreadnought behind them in a giant heat shielded coke can.

Great issue as always, really like the new Iron Forge section, it'd be great to see that continue.

Keep up the good work.

@The Dwarf Wolf: No worries! Send us what you have, and I can fix any grammar stuff. We always love more content!

@Rolt: Thanks a ton! Glad you enjoy it, and Iron Forge will become a regular monthly piece (Hopefully with more artists in the future as well!)

I'm not sure how well my mantic minis would stand next to the others (painted for tabletop, really), but perhaps after I get a proper lightbox I could consider submitting them for approval.

@Grim: We don't really have a vetting process for minis, so as long as you're satisfied with them, we'd be happy to include them!

I appreciate that. I can't make them look better but I can certainly take better photos so until I get a better process for that I'll have to be satisfied looking at the nice minis everyone else has been submitting.

I'm from the future. The future of space

I'm seriusly impressed by the consistency and quality of this fan endeavor.

Balance in pick up games? Two people, each with their own goals for the game, design half a board game on their own without knowing the layout of the board and hope it all works out. Good luck with that. The faster you can find like minded individuals who want the same things from the game as you, the better.

I looked at the google docs link and was like, "the colors all seem off and cartoony" and then I downloaded the file.

Glorious magazine guys! Top notch effort

Yeah, Google Docs automatically compresses images into a lousy 16-color series of gifs. Scribd and/or dropbox keep the original colors though!

Thanks. I really like the painting and modelling guides , battlereports and the photos of minitures, armies etc.

No intrest whatever on the written stories so I mostly just skip through them. Sure there are others that do enjoy them though.

I'm waiting for the ones coming out in parts to be finished then I'm gonna read them straight through, same with TV shows... I'd rather wait out the season and watch the whole thing at once

I do like the various articles and painted models as well. I'll have to submit my Warpath stuff, waiting to see if tax time yields a better camera.

I'm wondering if the image quality in the mag will be improving? I know it's done to keep the file size down, but the images being reduced to ..I dunno. 32 colours or whatever it is makes them look horrible, detracts from the magazine and makes the showcase and painting articles kind of pointless. And, well, all of the images, really.

Use the Scribd or Dropbox links for viewing. The 32-color is only on the Google Docs, because Google Docs compresses all images into low-color-count gifs (Some people had issues with accessing scribd and dropbox at work, so we provided the Google Doc link so eople with those restrictions could still see the articles)

I would continue to recommend putting the dropbox link as the first one on the list when posting the three download links on the blog.

It just removes the risk of someone seeing the poor quality images in the google docs one, thinking that that's all there is and possibly not coming back to it in future.

Also, for thumbnail images make sure you avoid screencapping the low quality google doc. The goblin on the front is green, not grey!

Other than that it is excellent. Text on the front cover isn't a bad idea, but the font and layout could be better. Articles are wonderful.

I'd have liked to have made more contributions lately, but unfortunately recent health problems have got in the way a bit.
