    Reading Martin’s review made me realize how I have been enjoying Angus McBride’s work for quite some time, without fully appreciating it.

    Thinking upon it now, it amazes me how much time I have actually stared at his plates, and don’t get me started on how many times I have used them as colour guides for painting my minis.

      Yes, the plates pretty much ‘sell’ an Osprey, quite often. Angus McBride’s artwork was absolutely stunning, and the skill required to convert historical/archaeological info into a work of art is a rare talent imdeed.
