Hey everyone!

Could someone please tell me how far the Firepower and Epic 40,000 Magazines went?

I think Firepower only went 4 issues, and I thought the Epic Magazine only went 5 issues, but the pictures on BGG lead me to believe they went to 10. Were these in the UK only? I don't remember anything above issue 5 being available in Canada (but I was a young kid so my memory could be skewed).

Thanks!

The Wikipedia entry says Firepower ran for 8 issues and Epic 40,000 ran for 20.

I can see these numbers repeated on several wikis, but they don't jibe with my experience at all. I'm 99% confident that there were only four issues of Firepower, and almost as confident that there were ten issues of the 40,000 magazine. It seems to me that someone accidentally doubled the numbers from 4&10 up to 8&20, and that this error has been copy-pasted from wiki to wiki.

I've seen nicely formatted PDFs that show the contents of each issue in chronological order, though it seems like those are much harder to find online at the moment. The best I could do is this non-chronological index:
