BLACK HAWK DOWN
Myself and David Tuck (of the Grimsby Wargames Society) was asked to join in on this anniversary issue, we both immediately leapt to the incident that occurred in Mogadishu, Somalia, in 1993. Dave would write the article while i did the photos, i would like to thank W.I. for allowing us to take part in the 300 anniversary and we all agree they have come along way from the very first issue and have contributed a great deal to wargaming.

We created the firefight as close as we could get to the movie and for those who have seen Black Hawk Down will have more of a understanding of what is going on and for those who have never seen the movie  ...  i suggest you watch it as it is one of the all time great war films.

Awesome pictures.  But the real question is did it translate into a fun game to play?

That is awesome! I should probably subscribe to WI. It's a great mag. Just need to scrounge up some cash for it...
