Author Copies Arrived - Tabletop Wargames, A Designers' And Writers' Handbook

Yay the author copies have arrived!

The book goes on sale at the end of the month for the princely sum of £11.99p.




I must say Pen & Sword have done us proud with colour-coded chapters and full colour throughout.

We owe a number of people thanks for the photos. They are credited in the book. This particular one is by Andy Singleton, the professional painter who works under the brand name of Volley Fire.

    1. Of course but it lowers the resale value. :)

  5. Dear John,
    Actually, signing it doesn't lower the resale value. It's personalizations that lower the value unless there's some unusual associational value: to my best fishing buddy, the Chief of the Imperial General Staff--that sort of thing.
    Seriously, well done John (and Rick)!

    1. Your signature may not lower the value but mine.......

  6. Or better still is a personal letter to the owner by the author of the book. Adds to the provenance later on. I shall be keeping an eye out for this next time I'm in Foyle's.

  7. Hi John, Looking forward to playing Poseidon's Warriors on Sunday, but it's not clear from the rules what ships/squadrons can do in a turn - can they move and shoot or just one? If both can they do them in any order? Is ramming carried out after and on top of movement or instead of it? Many thanks Harry

  9. Monty and Harry. The reply button has stopped working on my blog post for some reason.

    Thanks for your kind remark, Monty.

    Harry, how did you get on. Do you still need help?
