Droitwich expert terrain modeller brings out new miniature wargames book

Tristan Harris 8th Apr, 2020 Updated: 8th Apr, 2020

A DROITWICH author has written a book on how miniature wargame players can set their scenes.

Tony Harwood’s Wargames Terrain and Buildings: North Africa and the Middle East – published by Pen and Sword – takes the reader through a range of projects step-by-step, from selecting the right materials to completing the finished settings.

Tony is an expert terrain modeller and his projects include a range of buildings and terrains, including mud-brick dwellings and shops, wells, palm trees, railway stations and colonial river gunboats.

Each stage is illustrated with colour photographs with every project specifically selected to provide a useful range of features and materials and they can be easily adapted to different scales.

The projects range from novice to experienced modellers.

Tony, who shares his years of experience in the book, said: “Any miniature wargame is greatly enhanced by realistic and evocative scenery and buildings, but commercial ready-made pieces can be expensive.

“Building your own can be a cost-effective and very rewarding alternative, another hobby in itself, but it can be hard to know where to start.”

The book is available to buy here.
