A book on Winter Warfare modeling that might be of interest. Presumably not a member! :o :shock:

Read about this on FB yesterday apparently the quality is super, but the book lacks the hints and tips people would expect from such a volume?

Also the entire print run is sold out too.............. :o Great for the author, not so good if you are now hearing about it and want a copy ;)

Looks amazing, but not a lot of use if there are no hints and tips/tutorials etc... :?

I think its a helluva commitment to have dedicated complete winter scenery. im not knocking it ,if that is what you want, then by all means. I acquired a load of white static grass ,and I use this for winter scenery ,I have a hand held hoover for the car ,and use a bag held with an elastic band ,that hoovers it all up nicely ,and its ready to go again next time. it is a pain doing it but it works really well for me. Obviously you can have some pieces that are dedicated to winter conditions to enhance the effect ,if you wish. cheers John

I've bought the book. I've already got a lot of winter stuff already, but it does contain a lot of useful material on how to create it, especially if starting from scratch. But I found quite a number of useful ideas to add to or enhance what I'd already done.

There was also a problem with the printer, so I would guess they may be out of pocket on the exercise. There is also an option to participate in a reprint

Have a look through the blog posts to see if you are tempted
What's the point of doing one period, when you can do them all.......... In life most people specialise so gradually they know more and more about less and less so eventually they know everything about nothing. I work on a broad front so eventually I'll know nothing about everything.

Pat lives over the river from me. I bought some Vikings off him at a motorway services a while back! Nice guy, and his blog is pure wargaming porn.

Dedicated winter scenery is a bit niche for me. Unless you're really keen on doing something like the Winter War that can't be done without it it seems like a lot of work for stuff that might not see a lot of use. Even in the 20th century there's much less fighting in winter, outside of a few specific campaigns.

One of the guys at the club brought a copy of the book down last week though. It's very nicely done and if you're even a little bit interested in winter terrain at larger scales you should jump on the next print run IMO.

Maybe but Eastfront WWII ought to have quite a range of opportunities. I hope so as that is what I am working on for Winter War material.
