Tales of a Wargames Widow, Volume 3
Diane Sutherland

Tales of Wargames Widow Volume 3 features 17 practical terrain projects from Battlegames and Miniature Wargames, all in their original extended format, with extra pictures.

This book takes you from the Canadian wilderness to the Plains of the West, from Ancient Greece to the Italian coast, with canoes and wagons thrown in. These projects show you how to make more indispensable terrain and tabletop features using everyday items that don't require you to have a degree in art and design.
