Change of Ownership at Wargames Illustrated

Wargames Illustrated is under new management. But it's also sort of old management, if you think about it. Dan Faulconbridge has been working with the magazine for 10 years now. He's taking over from Editor in Chief John Paul and owner Peter Simunovich. The magazine will still be associated with Battlefront, who will continue to distribute it. Also, the look of the magazine won't change much in the near future. While there are some changes in the works, the WI you've loved will still be the one you'll be getting.
