Airfix Guide Number 24 :American Civil War Wargaming’By Terence WiseReview by Jonathan AirdThere are some founding fathers of wargaming who haveachieved immortal status - surely everyone has heard ofFeatherstone, Scruby and Grant? And there are others whohad a large influence and are now barely recalled. Terence("Terry") Wise is one of these half-forgotten demi-gods ofwargaming, but there was a time when he was highly influential-- his “Observation Post” column in Battle (and later MilitaryModelling) was the first of what would become a staple ofwargaming magazines -- a mixture of what he was up to,gaming gossip and early reviews and notices of upcomingreleases. I suppose we'd call that a blog these days! As well asthis, there were his wargame rules, his many articles forwargaming magazines, his books (including several earlyOspreys), and his military book business.He had several wargaming books tohis name, including this Airfix Guideto the ACW. Terry Wise had a longassociation with Airfix and Airfixmagazine, probably more so thanany other wargamer. The Airfixfigures are well known, and the factthat Airfix offered a verycomprehensive range for the ACW -- the obvious Union Infantry,Confederate Infantry, Artillery withUnion and CSA crews beingsupplemented with figures from theboxes of 7th Cavalry, NativeAmericans, Wagon Train, Cowboys and the French Foreign Legion (acting as zouaves !) -- makeit quite surprising that this book didn’t appear earlier in the Airfix guide series.
