October 2012 marks the 25th anniversary of the launch of Wargames Illustrated magazine. By happy coincidence (or the clever application of mathematics) this is also the 300th issue of the magazine. So WI300, cover date October 2012, will be a very special bumper-issue of the world’s premier (and bestselling) tabletop historical gaming magazine.

WI300 will be a massive, 300-page issue (a regular issue is 124 pages). The theme for this issue is ‘Last Stands and Against the Odds’. We have chosen this as we wanted something that was both dramatic and period non-specific. More than half of the magazine will be dedicated to the theme, and there are articles ranging from the Ancient, Medieval, Horse and Musket, Colonial, American Civil War, to World War Two and Modern periods (plus much more).
