Hello everybody,

I will do a short Youtube video when I have a physical copy of the book so that you can get an idea of the content and layout.

I will post updates from time to time

Best Regards


Mick

Looks like a very good resource for someone either never having painted or those wishing to up their game. Well done!

North Star Military Figures have the book up for pre-orders. They are also the host to this group, so if you buy from North Star you are supporting this site too.

@Captain Blood.

Your picture was the Publisher's favourite and I am proud to have it on the cover.
Thank-you again.

Yesterday, I went to Nottingham. I visited North Star Military Figures and bought 20 copies of my book, which I have sent out to the painters and manufacturers who supported the book. Nick gave me a better price than the publisher offered me. I also visited Caliver Books to discuss small scale publishing. Finally, I visited Warlord and showed the book to their management.

I have also been in contact with magazines. Miniature Wargames 431 is the first magazine with a review of my book. It was in UK stores on 8th February and has two thirds of a page review of the book on page 5. WI and WSS will also have reviews of the book in their March / April issues.

I also bought Cruel Seas so I will be painting MTBs soon.
