I am well aware that Blog updates have been a little slow this year, but never fear, I am keeping busy. Over the last week I have concentrated on Wargame Terrain Book Two. I have still to fully decide on the title, but the favourite is, (drum roll please) Dampfpanzerwagon Guide No. 2 More Wargame Terrain by Tony Harwood.
I had intended it to be a step up from the initial book, with articles and tutorials dealing with more advanced techniques or projects, however a recent conversation with my Daughter (who did a lot of the editing and proof-reading of book one) has made me think; just maybe I ought to include a couple of easier or simpler projects as well as these signature pieces. I think that this is a good idea and one worth considering.
What ever I decide, the format will be very similar to book one with more new projects and one or two surprises. I am anticipating another A4 format, full colour book of about 100 pages.
The planned release date is August/September 2014.
In addition I will be repeating the same deal - with the first 100 books signed and numbered. Watch this space for further details.
I have been thinking about releasing one of the articles from Book One onto the internet just prior to the release of Book Two, possibly via Orcs in the Webbe and wondered how this would be received by those who have bought Book One. My logic, is that it could raise the profile of the release and increase sales. Comments are very welcome from both those who have purchased Book One and those who are new to this Blog. Maybe a Building Wargame Terrain lite? (And yes, I know that I have spelt it the American way).
The production of Building Wargame Terrain was a real learning curve and I would hope that book two would run a little smoother and more importantly quicker. Once again any comments on content or style would be greatly appreciated.
For anyone interested, this is the link to Book One. Watch this space.....
