Blasts from the Past: Classic Slingshot Articles online

Justin Swanton and John Graham-Leigh have been putting together a selection of classic articles from Slingshot to be made available online.  Justin has revamped the graphics and images to bring things up to current standards, and we will be putting them up on the Society of Ancients website.

The first article is here: Rioting in Alexandria: A mob action battle report by Ed Mills, from Slingshot 27, Jan. 1970.  The article outlines a clever rule framework for gaming mob clashes in the ancient world.

The second article is here: Solo Campaigning, by John Graham-Leigh, from Slingshot 192, July 1997.  This article looks at ideas for how the solo wargamer can create a campaign background to generate interesting battles for solo or face-to-face play.

We will be bringing you more classic articles over the next few months, so stay tuned!
