Tactical Wargamer's Journal (ISSN 1918-9729), published on a non-regular schedule, covers topics of interest in the world of commercial tactical wargaming, focusing on land warfare at platoon level and below in the 20th/21st Centuries. TWJ places emphasis on both military and wargaming history. The premiere issue includes articles on the history of tactical wargaming, board wargaming packaging/box art, ASL components described at the Desperation Morale website with background on the site, the Red Army in World War II and its depiction in games, Soviet tanks in miniature, board and PC games, Soviet tank unit history and organization, and a comparison of CMBB and PC:K. A 2014 supplement adds a second feature on the Infantry Regiment "Grossdeutschland" as well as a custom made ASL scenario with detailed playtest report. Issue 1 is now available in both print and e-copy format.
