An interesting find in some old EEL magazines

I’ve always enjoyed the various incarnations of this magazine 

I’ve been looking through some old wargaming magazines (remember those folks?) looking for more writings and potential scenarios as I continue my long lasting love of the Napoleonic period.  I had the good fortune of reading some great articles in Empires, Eagles and Lions and then came across one of my favourite sections - “Friday Night at the Fights”.


I swear I’m going to commission an Austrian command stand in sheets
 one day “The White Menace” indeed!


For those who remember the magazine it was the cartoonish recollections of the previous battle fought by the New Jersey Wargamers, and was a hoot to read.  Well this particular issue had the origins of the cartoon.  Very interesting reading.

    1. Its amazing how the style of literal cut and paste by hand still has an Old School appeal after all these years Aly. Very good to reminisce still.

  3. Yep,"Friday Night at the Fights" was a favorite. I have a lot of issues, but they predate the color covered ones!
