Setting the Scene Book

Here is an update. The Setting the Scene terrain book is finished and has been sent for proofing. Pat and I are now asking for those people who have previously shown interest to definitely commit to buying the book.

The price for the book is £17.50
UK postage 1st/2nd class is £1.74/£1.58
Europe £5.15
World Zone 1 £7.45 (North & South America, Africa, Asia).
World Zone 2 £7.90 (Australia, New Zealand, Singapore).

We are not asking for money yet, please just go to the special page that Pat has set up on his blog and state how many copies you want. We can then get a better idea of what the final print run will be, we will obviously print some ‘overs’ but we cannot afford to print too many. Here is the link.


We will be asking for payment when we send the book for the actual print run which will be in about 10-14 days time.

Here is an update. Thanks for all of the interest in Pat’s Terrain Book. The design/layout aspect of the book is now finished. Proofreading will be done this week and print proofing a week to 10 days after that. When we get proofs/dummies we can work out postage costs and final price of the book. In the next week or so I will post and give instructions of how you can sign up for a copy.
Nearly there!

I have decided to venture into the world of self-publishing. Pat Smith is a wargaming friend, he has a blog wargaming with silver whistle. Lots have people have shown interest in his ‘Setting the Scene’ winter terrain. Between us we have decided to self-publish the book. It will be A4 and around 120 pages with step by step guides to building his winter terrain.
