Setting the Scene: Winter Wargaming, a Review
What I really love, and can't praise enough, is the fact that Pat uses existing resin and MDF kits and Woodland Scenics products. If you read my blog you'll know I use Woodland Scenics stuff all the time. This is because the stuff is colourfast. It doesn't fade over the years unlike other products. Also, Woodlands Scenics are reliable and always do as they are advertised. gan, th same can't always be said of other products.
But the real reason I'm raving about this is pat shows us all how to create amazing scenery utilising what's already out there. You don't have to be a master modeller or guild certiied craftsman t acheve the same results that grace his photographs. That's a bloomin' great thumbs up from me. And if the rest of the gaming community has any sense at all, you'll all be raving about this book at least as much as I am!
Of course, for those of us who can't afford to buy all the lovely kits he's used, well, we'll just ogle at all the lovely eye candy and use it to figure out how to scratch build them ourselves. And then we can use Pat's techniques so we can use them in both summer and winter gaming (which is absolutely ingenious and worth the cost of the book in itself)!
Very well done, Pat! Very well done indeed!
Pat's self-published his book. If you want a copy (and you know you really do!) then head over to his phenomenal blog and post a comment. I'm sure he'll be delighted to hear from you and organise a copy for you!
