9781848842212: The Wargaming Compendium

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 color 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 humor and a lightness of touch.

The contents 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 also incorporates 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.

About the Author:

Henry Hyde has recently become the Editor of Miniature Wargames magazine following its merger with Battlegames. Introduced to model soldiers, Airfix kits and a toy fort when he was a small boy, he has been playing wargames ever since, his interests ranging throughout the annals of history. He also dabbles in skirmish, naval and aerial wargaming and even confesses to a lively interest in fantasy and science fiction. He has a special love of campaigns, the eighteenth century battles of Marlborough and Frederick the Great and siege warfare. An honours graduate in European History and languages from Sussex University, Henry’s interest in wargaming is firmly rooted in a passion for history. Besides writing, he is a professional graphic designer and enjoys art, photography and music. One of Henry’s greatest passions is for cooking, on which he blames his current waistline. When not frantically trying to meet deadlines, Henry fills his spare time with blogging, podcasting, tweeting and all those other modern-day activities that prevent us from truly relaxing. He even manages to play the occasional wargame. Henry lives in the beautiful county of East Sussex.

Review:

" ...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.com)

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 Soldier and Model Figure)

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)
