Two discounted wargames books available

By Rob Morgan

That excellent mail order discount book dealer Postscript (details below) has two sound wargames titles in its new March 2021 List, No. 326, which arrived here today. Both are Pen & Sword titles, and both are by Daniel Mersey.  Both are priced at £4.99 + £1 postage.

1. ‘A Wargamer’s Guide to the Anglo-Zulu War,’ 120 pages.

2. ‘A Wargamer’s Guide to 1066 and the Norman Conquest,’ 128 pages.

The two manuals are well illustrated and deal comprehensively with tactics, and building armies with reviews of suitable figure ranges. There are one or two similar guides to the Zulu war around, but the Normans, Saxons and Scandinavians of 1066 are long overdue for a further competent wargame examination.

    Speaking of bargains, Gridded Naval Wargames Kindle Edition
    by Bob Cordery is available as an ebook for $5.39. I bought it today because I have been avoiding naval wargames and decided it is time to broaden my horizons. Articles in the Lone Warrior and the blog have shown the potential of naval battles and also amphibious assault scenarios. At a minimum, I should get a gunboat or two. Up to now, I have just had to put a tank on a plank and say it was a field gun on a barge.

    Thanks for the heads up….have ordered Mersey’s 1066 book (as if I needed more!!)

    That’s a great find – Thanks.

    They also have a couple of the Peter Dennis paper figures books – wars of Marlborough and Medieval siege! And a couple of the Osprey Ghost Archipelago books (part of the Frostgrave series of rulebooks).

    Whilst we’re mentioning Frostgrave – Osprey have a 30% sale on print books and games, 40% off Ebooks, running until 31st march 2021.

    Talking of Frostgrave, I think Ghost Archipelago was on sale in the Postscript listings when I searched via ‘wargames’.

    Well – I’m really pleased with Postscript books – they came in just a few days, everything is in good condition. I’m not sure I’ll build the Medieval castle, but the Marlborough’s wars book was very good. It was the “Campaign Book” – no potted history or rules (although these can be downloaded from the publisher’s – Helion – website) so many more pages of troop drawings.

    The Ghost Archipelago books look very good, if one is at all interested in Fantasy skirmish rules in a jungle/tropical isle setting. And all half price or better.

    Indeed…thanks to Rob for the heads up

    Be aware that both of these (and nearly all other Pen and Sword titles) are available free through the Hoopla Digital app, which pairs with many public libraries.
