Well my Armies of Julius Caesar came today and I like it a lot. There is one color plate B2 of  a Celtic Auxiliary Cavalryman Britannia 54 BC . What makes this guy so interesting is his Helmet I have never seen this kind :o  They state that it was found in West Sussex  and on page 45 they have a reconstruction of it in the Novium Museum Chichester  I think it would make a neat figurer  Willie

Agree Willie, for painting reference (working books) most are the cheaper soft cover and do like a  colour picture or two of the uniform is always good, my special books tend to be hard back, and yes I still prefere to open a book then get lost on the internet  ;)

While coming back from a Toy Solider Show in DC I got in a conversation with My friend Benjamin King about books. Ben is a Author and Historian . One of his books he wrote was Spearhead of Logistics The History of the US Army Transportation Corps and he gave staff talks at Yorktown Battle filed . There where Officers from all over the World.  We where talking about what does the painter of figures want. That's a good question :o  what do you want. Books on Uniforms in the last 50 years have doubled in content . We both said that when we where young if it had color picture of a Uniforms we bought it :o .  Now these days you can go on the internet and fine about any thing. Yet a lot more painters us books. Today most are Paper Backs vise Hardback.  I use Osprey because if I do get paint on them I am not out $100 or more :-\  and they don't take up space :-\  Now for the painter historian I would say Helion & Company and don't leave out books not in English .and the Hard Bound Classics . We both agreed on what I said. I am not a expert if I was life would be a bit dull :'(  I well still open a book when I need information. I would like to hear from you on what you think :o   Now the latest books that just came Osprey German Troops in the American Revolution Hessen-Cassel vol 1  The Portuguese Army and the Seven Years War. Helion & Company Willie.
