Is this magazine related to Guidon Games? Yes, I have a soft spot for magazines :)

I assume he's talking about "The Guidon Magazine".
http://g.theguidon.com/

I really doubt it's related in any way, but I've never read it.

I don't think so either.  They did have a catalog/magazine called Lowry's Guidon and Panzerfaust though.

The person wanting to sell me this magazine says it's a wargaming magazine, not a gossip one  :P

I was thinking of the old one not the gossip one.  I think the old one focuses on miniatures and the dress of various periods - not sure it has any wargaming content.  I think it started way way way back maybe in the 1940s or 1950s.
