by Alan David

The German troops have reached the gates of Stalingrad, and they intend to bring it down.

Kurt, his brother, and a tank commander, is pounding a bloody trail into the heart of Russia.

As victory slips from the Nazi’s grasp, both brothers find themselves steeped in the carnage of a war they might never escapeâ?¦

If they ever make it back home, what will be left of them once Stalingrad is finished with them?

When The Dust Settles

by Jason Foss

When the young archaeologist Maddy Crowe is drafted in to work as costume advisor on a major feature film about the Roman emperor Septimius Severus, she soon finds herself in the backbiting company of Hollywood actors – and a long way from her normal, safe world of academia.

But things are about to get much worse.

The mood on the set quickly turn sour when an unknown writer arrives, claiming that the director stole his plot.

And twenty minutes after he disappears people lie on the floor, bleeding from near-fatal gunshot wounds.

The writer is now the police’s prime suspect and a massive manhunt is underway.

But Maddy Crowe knows something is amiss.

Why weren’t the high-profile director, production assistants, or actors targeted by the killer?

She can’t believe that these two co-workers, a historian and a special effects coordinator, could have been the target of an assassination attempt. It’s all too convenient, and nobody’s asking the right questions.

In an attempt to clear the writer’s name, Maddy pairs up with fellow archaeologist and film-adviser, Dr Jeremy Flint to conduct her own private investigation.

Marauding through film sets from southern England to the Scottish Highlands, she must use her intuition to figure out who was behind the attack, and who the intended target might have been.

But Maddy is about to find out that some things are better left in the pastâ?¦

â??When the Dust Settles’ is a thrilling crime thriller, which delves into the ancient past while surging through the technological present.

Praise for Jason Foss:

Hordes of Models and Buckets of Dice (Pikes and Axes): Wargame Rules

by Nigel Emsen

The design philosophy of the rule set provides a simple approach that can be used to play wargame battles irre-spective of the figure scale (6mm, 10mm, 15mm, 25mm and even 1/32 scale). This is so that you can use your cur-rent collection of figures without any changes. The rules focus on command and control as opposed to a traditional approach of distinct and detailed weapon factors. By tak-ing a light, very broad-brush approach, large games can be played in a few hours.

The command and control elements are held at the unit level. Generals are represented as a staff team and are only used in the concept of a planning trait. You define the type of staff team at the start of the game and then this sets the type of strategy used by the units under that staff team.

You need to decide the unit’s capabilities relative to the norm for the period. If the unit is better at shooting than other units of the period, you may wish to give that unit shooting ability. All units are assumed to be able to shoot. You do have the option to declare a unit as no shooting ability. This is where you decide that the unit is not effec-tive for the period or may not have a range weapon.

If you find a situation is not covered in the rules then please come up with your own “house rule”.

The rules allow games from the biblical period of history to beginning of the use of the longbow by the Welsh.
