Review:

"graphic arts extravaganza is enhanced by lively and engaging text that clearly explains things with a feel for flair and a good sense of humor. ..ranks as a great addition to the pastime's lore...comprehensive and entertaining...highly recommended to both more experienced tabletop generals and beginners."--Toy Solder & Model Figure

" ...it is as complete a guide to the hobby of wargaming as you can currently get. If you have a friend or relative who wants to get into this hobby or has only just got into it then buy them this book for Christmas, their birthday or Easter... like having a seasoned wargamer at your elbow guiding you along the way....if you are like me a wargamer of some decades of experience then buy this book. It will remind you why you got into the hobby in the first place, bring back some very vivid memories of "the early days" and make you look at the hobby afresh. .... yes I really, really like this book and make no apologies for laying it on with a trowel! Don't waste anymore time and get this book into your life now!--Wargamer

"I highly recommend this 519-page book to ANYONE interested in miniature wargaming. The title of The Wargaming Compendium is at least an understatement as this one volume gives the prospective gamer an insight to the beginning of this hobby that will only grow stronger with time. Also, grab this fascinating book while you can, as Wargaming Books, such as this, will sell out quickly and become a collectors editions before you know it. Get it while it's HOT."--Mataka.org

About the Author:

A wargamer since childhood, Henry Hyde burst onto the wargames scene in 2006 with his own _Battlegames_ magazine. He went on to edit the combined _Miniature Wargames_ with _Battlegames_ before leaving to pursue other design and publishing interests in 2016\. His enthusiasm for wargaming is rooted in his deep love of history (he has a degree in European History from Sussex University) but he also enjoys writing fiction, photography, watercolour painting, music and cooking. He is the author of the acclaimed The _Wargaming Compendium_ published by Pen & Sword Books in 2013\. Henry lives near the sea in East Sussex.

Book Description Pen & Sword Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 2013. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. This book gives a complete introduction to the hobby of 'wargaming with miniatures, especially suitable for the newcomer but also containing sufficient depth and breadth of information to attract the more experienced gamer. Packed with colour photographs, maps and diagrams the book is a visual treat, but one built on the solid foundations of a highly literate and engaging text that does not 'dumb down' the hobby. Every aspect is explained clearly and in a way that both informs and entertains, with plenty of personality, gentle humour and a lightness of touch. The contents will include a brief history of the development of wargaming, choice of periods from ancients to sci-fi, the question of scale (not only of miniatures, but the size of game from the smallest skirmishes to epic battles), terrain, buying and painting miniatures, creating scenarios for wargames, running a campaign, solo wargaming and so on. It will also incorporate simple wargaming rules covering all periods of history as well as fantasy and science fiction gaming.These rules will have optional mechanisms allowing them to be used for very small games with just a few figures, or much bigger games with several regiments or brigades on each side.Listen to more about the book on the View from the Veranda Episode 7 podcast /.
