Preview page or two would sure be useful…

Having missed out on your previous editions of terrain books, I am curious whether the older books will be reprinted? While I realize this Napoleonic book will be applicable in technique to other periods, and even genres, it will still have a slant towards the early 19th century. Cheers!

A number of interesting questions…..

I am sure that there will be some preview pages soon. I already have a contents page on my Blog and will take advice from Pen & Sword as to how best they wish to proceed.

I have no plans for any reprints the simple fact is that a self-published book has restrictions relating to the print run numbers that make it difficult to make any money out of limited number or low number reprints. Book one was in fact reprinted twice. Book two once and I therefore increased the number of prints of book three. I still have a number of book three or Models For Wargamers in the garage! You can find details of how to order a copy on the Blog.

The Napoleonic book has techniques and styles that are applicable to a wide range of different genres, but as stated mainly 19th Century. The next book commissioned by Pen & Sword will feature a wider time scale of buildings and terrain from North Africa and The Middle East.

I should also point out that I have in the pipeline at least four articles/tutorials booked to be published in Wargames, Soldiers & Strategy and Miniature Wargames details of which will appear on the Blog.

Thank you.

Tony now that there will be no re prints why not make the books available in PDF. I'm sure there are many that would like them and are willing to go for PDF versions at a reduced price to the books.

If I could find a simple way of publishing PDF copies, I would certainly think about it.

Contact DriveThruRPG.com, and their affiliate companies. They offer PDF and POD services. Cheers!

Wargamers Vault but I think that may be a DriveThruRPG.com affiliate.
