I recently finished a 5ft x 10ft terrain mat which I hope looks suitably Mediterranean and it is graced with some wonderfully painted figures and vehicles by the very talented Nick from moitereisbuntewelt.blogspot.com. (scroll down for more pictures).
I will have a 'Guest Painter's Section' in the new book and Nick will be doing a tutorial on how he painted the Italian Infantry and hopefully the vehicles as well.
I have finally upgraded my old camera, so hopefully, you will see an improvement in the quality and depth of the pictures. I am no expert on photography but there will be a short piece in volume 2 on the new camera I have chosen and why.
The books for the 3rd print run Setting The Scene, Winter Wargaming arrived today and Steve has been beavering away and will be posting these out tomorrow and Thursday to all those who have ordered a copy. We have also ordered a fair few extra copies, so if you haven't ordered and you want a copy then you can either contact me by clicking on Setting The Scene in the second box down from the top right column of this page or through Steve at http://www.stevenlampon.co.uk/portfolio/
Karwansaray Publishers at Wargames Soldier and Strategy are also stocking the book and have done a review in this months magazine. (see below)
The vehicles are an Italian M13/40 and a German Marder II both from Perry Miniatures along with the infantry. The table looks a bit sparse but this is intentional as I want you to focus on the mat, that is if you can draw your eyes away from Nick's Italians.
Napoleonics for the Peninsula coming up next.
