All hands on Deck :o Today I received a very neat book which I ordered in June. The Fighting Ships in the Royal Navy  897-1984 by  E.H.H Archibald printed in 1987 . There are a lots of books that are printed on the Royal Navy but this is outstanding in regards to the different ships in the History of the Navy. It is a Blandford series composing to volumes  wood and Iron. I know a lot os you guy and gals are not into Naval but this book covers a lot of information color and black and white views of ships along with flags and ammunition  :o It has a lot of ideas you could use to make Diorama with flats.  So take a look and let me know what you think

Hi all well I am back :o Now to come up to speed. First  Samurai Warriors by Stephen Turnbull. This was printed in 1991 the Blandford series I like book and he is a great author on the subject and this series runs from Uniforms to Aircraft. In this day and age they just fit right in both for space and budget. Second is Ceremonial Uniforms of the World by Jack Cassin-Scott & John Fabb by Arco publishing ??? printed in 1977 . I like it its a nice little book with lots of ideas for painting flats  :o you could paint Life Guards ,Palaces Guards and so on ???

Does anyone  of are French members know what is going on with Histoire & Collections  ??? Every time I go onto there web page I get that they are off the web and reworking it :o I tried Casemate  in the states and they told me that they had changed owner ship. :o Also that some of there books they where advertising would not be sold here in the states. I was able to pick up a old book Military Bands and there Uniforms. It was printed in 1978 by Blandford Press. Some good information about bands. Willie

Well it came today The War of the Triple Alliance,or the Paraguayan 1864-1870 by Gabriele Esposito.  One of the longest Wars in South America and one of the most deadliest wars in the 19th century. The art work is out standing  :o done by Giuseppe Rava who has done illustrations for Osprey. Printed by Wing Hussar Publishing. I have another one of there books about the 30 years war. They did a outstanding job on this. I hope this is the start for bigger and better books from them. The following countries are covered Paraguay, Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay. Along with the Osprey Men at Arms Series on this period of history you can paint a lot of interesting figures.  :o Willie

Ok today I received one of my birthday presents. Riding into the Twilight.  This book covers a lot of  information on the German Army's Last Cavalryman 1920-45 . I know that my farther would have liked this books since he was in the First Cavalry Division 7th Cav in World War  II . His division was mounted until they went over seas to Australia. They also patrolled the border  :o I like it because of all the horse equipment in great detail, and the formation information in it. It is printed by Tiger III Books ???   Its not cheap but if you are interested in Cavalry its worth it 8) Willie

Well it came today :o Horse Archers Weapons Vol 1 by Gyozo Somogyi   8) Lots and lots of color in it  and equipment clothing, harness, weapons and flags. So lets start with what it covers Scythian-Saka People  4th-1th century BC. Parthian  People 1st BC-3rd AD . Sasanian Persian Empire 3rd-7th centuries. The Hun Empire in the 5th century. The Avars in the 6th-9th. centuries. Sogdia & Khorezm 7th-8th centuries. The Turk & Uigurian people in the 8th century. Tibet in the 8th century. Chines in the service of Tibet. Last is the Kyrgyz just one print but I think it well more in Vol 2 . If you are looking for something else to paint you have a open section to choose from ::) I wish that they made some sets of these people  ;D So now off to order Vol 2 :o I think that there are two more books on medieval Knights in Hungry  :o Willie
