My last list concerned the giants of the wargame industry. Now I'm interested in compiling a list of small or new wargame publishers. Please feel free to add to this list, and mention your thoughts on these companies.

These magazine games rekindled my love for wargames after a very long dormancy.

Fat Messiah Games - not everything they've produced has been a wargame, but they have some very decent (and affordable) con-sims, including this WW2-in-space game and its expansions.
