Wargame Bloggers Quarterly is a new gaming magazine that’s free to download and read. The first issue has just been posted. Why not check it out?
From the launch:
What’s this all about then?!?
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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!
Volume One – Issue One – August 2014 (PDF – 25Mb)
So there you have it! As Editor-in-Chief and also publisher of Issue One I had my hands full as you can probably imagine. Fortunately I was blessed with a team of supportive, talented individuals in the form of the Editorial Panel who helped out with every conceivable task and generally made my life a lot easier.
If you were not initially involved or offered a role please don’t feel left out! When we kicked off we worked with an initial list of people drawn from our respective contacts and we limited that list to keep things sane as we found our way. From now on anyone is free to submit content and we heartily encourage it!. Not only that, if you read our charter you will see that the Editorial Panel gets refreshed periodically and the Editor-in-Chief role gets moved on from issue to issue as well. No one person owns WBQ – the community owns WBQ.
