Yes, I have no complaints :) Thank you.

Interesting, thanks. Mark Felton's channel has some very interesting stuff.

Re: Skirmish Kids playtest available

I got started in wargaming when my brother in law gave me a copy of "Battle" by Charles Grant. I agree, Carl, that rules like this are very helpful for introducing kids to wargaming. I've played Panzer Kids with my two, and had wondered about trying Hordes of the Things with them, but I th...

Skirmish Kids playtest available

I reviewed Panzer Kids, a simple set of tank battle rules designed to help get kids into the hobby, a couple of years ago: https://sotcw.co.uk/panzer-kids/ The author of Panzer Kids, Peter Schweighofer, has now released a playtest version of Skirmish Kids. This is a similar idea, but the rules cover...

Re: A Strange Campaign now out

Since some of you have ordered copies, please check the interior, especially if you bought the hardback. I've had reports of mis-printed copies in the wild :oops: :x The mis-printed ones have "USER922240" instead of my name on the title page. You should be able to return them, but email me...

Good, I'm glad you're pleased with it. I was particularly pleased with the maps.

A Strange Campaign now out

My next book, about the battle for Madagascar in WWII, is now available . It covers the entire campaign, from the initial landings to the final Vichy surrender. It's included in two bundles on Wargame Vault, each with a saving of about 25% off compared to buying the titles separately. One is the ebo...

Re: Now available for pre-order: A Strange Campaign

(I recently followed up one quoted source in another history and could not find the quoted source despite there being an online source for this long out of print pictorial newspaper. But at least it gave me a trail to follow.) If it was a link to a page that no longer exists, it might be worth tryi...

Re: Now available for pre-order: A Strange Campaign

I wondered how much control over maps and images the author has? Your previous posts seemed to imply "not a lot"? For me, quite the opposite. Because I'm publishing myself, using my own publishing company, I have complete control. For authors going through a publishing house it will depen...
