Well, here is a question - what do you feel is lacking? We run regular articles for all our games in S&P, we have roving demo teams, our front line games get regular updates.
What is it you are after?
Matthew certainly brings up an interesting point. BF:Evo has been featured in at least one article in all but one Signs and Portents-Wargamer since Issue 36. As for the content, I'll touch on that in a bit.
That said, the biggest problem of course was a lack of new physical products (ie Minis) or concrete news. The former was an issue for people who wanted more options for their games (apparantly just about everybody). I got the impression the latter was a particular problem for the demo teams; without any news on where the game was going (or even a good "company line") they had trouble figuring out what to do demo-wise and so the drive stalled in many areas.
Some of the Signs and Portents articles helped. Gauging the reactions of people on these forums, it seems the unit cards were a hit (for the most part) as it was the closest people got to having new releases. The Kerakhistan Race of Death met with mixed reviews, and new alternate rules like snipers and tank riders seemed to go over well. The battle reports and scenarios/campaigns seemed to get luke-warm reactions at best. As I've mentioned in another thread, I think this was a result of the very basic nature of these pieces. At the end of the year, when over a two-month span we recieved a basic rules battle report and a scenario involving elves, people really started to panic about the game.
With that said, what is it "we're" after? Here's what I think:
1. More unit cards (at least while we have to wait for #6 below)
2. More intricate scenarios/campaigns
3. A more detailed background presented in S&P and/or supplements
4. Terrain and conversion articles in S&P
5. More optional rules with the best possibly put in an "official" book
6. Most importantly---Miniatures!!!
One minor thing: How about some evo love in the blog?
