This book gives a complete introduction to the hobby of ‘wargaming with miniatures, especially suitable for the newcomer but also containing sufficient depth and breadth of information to attract the more experienced gamer. Packed with colour photographs, maps and diagrams the book is a visual treat, but one built on the solid foundations of a highly literate and engaging text that does not ‘dumb down’ the hobby. Every aspect is explained clearly and in a way that both informs and entertains, with plenty of personality, gentle humour and a lightness of touch. The contents will include a brief history of the development of wargaming, choice of periods from ancients to sci-fi, the question of scale (not only of miniatures, but the size of game from the smallest skirmishes to epic battles), terrain, buying and painting miniatures, creating scenarios for wargames, running a campaign, solo wargaming and so on. It will also incorporate simple wargaming rules covering all periods of history as well as fantasy and science fiction gaming.
These rules will have optional mechanisms allowing them to be used for very small games with just a few figures, or much bigger games with several regiments or brigades on each side.Listen to more about the book on the View from the Veranda Episode 7 podcast http://www.viewfromtheveranda.co.uk/
