EDITORIAL

This month’s magazine sees an exciting tie-in between printed paper and 3D printing. The paper element you are holding in your hands in the form of this magazine and your free Thalassa ancient naval battles rulebook. The 3D printing side of the marriage sees Wi giving away free STL files* to all our WiPrime Members for the first time. If you are a WiPrime Member you will be able to download a whole fleet of ships to take to the tabletop and play out ancient naval battles using your new Thalassa rules. Fear not if you don’t own a 3D printer, you can purchase the ships and accessories ‘ready-made’ in resin from NG Castings – see our Building Your Fleet article for more information.

As you are now the proud owner of the Thalassa rules you will want to know about the ancient ships that will take the starring role in your games. You can do that by turning to page 72 and reading all about Triremes or flip to the Thalassa battle report and scenario on page 30.

We’re not 100% nautical this month, Billhookers (or potential Billhookers) are given an Easy Way In to the Never Mind the Billhooks medieval small battles rules with some sample army lists on page 52. We also have some Great Northern War and SAGA: Age of Alexander action for you in this issue.

Owner and Editor

*Stereolithography. That’s the technical name for the digital files used for 3D printing.
