Announcing Wargame Bloggers Quarterly

The Wargame Bloggers Quarterly (WBQ) is a FREE community driven electronic magazine (PDF e-Zine) composed of the best wargames and miniature painting content from the collective blogosphere.

The purpose of the WBQ is to help promote wargaming and miniature painting and ensure that the best material generated by participants in the hobby is available to the wider community in the long term.

Any individual is free to submit content to WBQ for publication. Submissions may not have been published in any other e-Zine, printed magazine or other publication to prevent copyright infringement (with the exception of the author’s own personal blog). All content remains the copyright of the author at all times and will be fully credited upon publication.

If you want to know more about WBQ you can read our charter here or you can contact the current Editor-in-Chief via email on wargamebq@gmail.com.

Important: WBQ is specially designed for tablet and/or PC viewing and contains high-resolution images and other content that look great when zoomed in or viewed full page. Make sure you download your copy rather than view it online to get the very best experience!

Issue List
It has been my absolute pleasure to have been involved in this project celebrating, as it does, all that I have come to love and enjoy about this most wholesome of hobbies and the hugely supportive community that  encompasses it.  I would encourage all to get involved by identifying possible content and contacting the Editor-in-Chief directly.  Finally a huge congratulations should go to Michael 'Millsy' Mills who managed to galvanise a group of charming, but disparate Gentlemen into producing something we all hope will continue to flourish, well done Sir!

  6. Its a great looking issue I commend Michael for getting it out. I have some knowledge about the trials of getting disparate gentlemen together on a project its much like cat herding. And as the person in charge of the Devil's Kitten I know a lot about that.

  18. Hello Michael! :) Very nice work and well presented. I am curios if also people living in the north(above Scotland) are allowed to send in articles for publication? I have the tools both to take pictures and also to make a nice graphical package.To give you a hint am I writing a tabletop-game called Hugg och slag (cut and blow) that contain wargame-rules for medieval sieges and big battles in the scale of 1:72.On top of this I have several topics on making scenery and skirmish in the pirate-era(age of sails). Keep up the good work.Looking forward reading next issue!!! :)Cheers/Peter

    1. Dear Peter, the joy of the publication is that it is online and of course doesn't worry about geographical restrictions or boundaries - so yes anyone can submit work. Just looking at some of what you have described they sound perfect and I would encourage you to contact the Editor-in-chief using the email address above. The idea is that the editor will change with each issue and is currently Dave Docherty, who has the blog 'One man and his brushes'. Best of luck and I hope to be reading some of your articles soon.
