Slingshot is a bi-monthly publication, distributed to members of the Society of Ancients as part of their membership subscription. Most of the content is contributed by Society members on a wide range of items related to Ancient and Medieval military history and wargaming. There are articles, reviews, letters, game design ideas, as well as the usual discussion on various wargames rules. Competition results and the occasional battle report are also published. Our quality publication showcases the written contributions from our membership and features original pen and ink artwork.

A PDF index of Slingshot, covering all issues from 1965 to 2015, is available from our Downloads page.
