Building Wargame Terrain, a further update. Yesterday I arrived home to find the first proof copy, a congratulations card and a bottle of Champagne. Thank you Sue. (We didn't drink the Champagne, preferring to go out for a celebratory meal instead).
The book is very well printed, as can be seen from these images which feature some of my earlier work in a gallery of earlier terrain pieces. In fact it is more of a glossy or premium magazine rather than a book with 170gsm inner pages and 300gsm card cover.
This image shows Sue, browsing through the contents, the second is me in a less well stage photo!
I am aware that there are a couple of changes and amendments to be made prior to the full production run, but as stated in my earlier posts, the deadlines I have set myself should be reached and books will be offered for sale before the end of July. I was also able to take the book to the local post office to assess postage costs to the UK, Europe and America.
It was always my intention to have a 'retro' cover in a style similar to the old Airfix Magazine Modelling Guides (see this link for examples). I think the orange cover does this. I hope you agree.
