Slingshot 262

The latest issue of Slingshot (number 262, January 2009), the bi-monthly publication of the Society of Ancients, has gone to the printers. My expectation is that it will be mailed out to society members around 12 February. The issue also includes results forms for the Society championship.

This issue is 60 pages long, not including the cover pages. It's published in the same format introduced with issue 258

The contents of Slingshot 262 are as follows. For games articles, I've indicated the relevant rule set where it's not immediately obvious from the title; with historical articles I've tried to indicate period if a similar issue applies.
