Over the last couple of years I have written a number of terrain building articles/tutorials for various magazines. In the main they have been simpler and less well illustrated than the tutorials I had included in both Building Wargame Terrain and More Wargame Terrain and (obviously) edited by other people.
My current work schedule includes a number of similar projects and although I get a great deal of satisfaction from these commissions, I do feel that, A - they could be more in-depth and B- there could be more illustrations.
I understand the limitations, the articles have in the main appeared in Wargame Magazines and not Model Making Magazines. I love reading the in-depth articles you see in Military Modeller or Tamiya Magazine or Fine Scale Modeller. Lots of detailed text and hundreds of glorious photos.
So is there a market for these articles in a Book 3 (Dampfpanzerwagon Guide No. 3 - Models for Wargamers!) - giving much more detail and with more (and larger) illustrations?
The reason I ask is that I'm not sure a re-worked article or tutorial, even if it has more detailed and included more illustrations would be welcomed. If it's a no to a book three - I could always add additional images to the Blog.
I would once again, produce a card covered, full colour A4 book, around 100 pages and with a mixture of old and new projects. The production run would be limited to around 200 - 250 copies and the first 100 numbered and signed (as the earlier books).
I am sure that there are 100 followers who would support this, but I'm asking anyway to judge the demand and to see the reaction.
Copies of Dampfpanzerwagon No.3 More Wargame Terrain are running very low (less than a dozen copies left).
