Review: More Wargame Terrain by Tony Harwood

Recently my copy of "More Wargame Terrain" arrived in the post. Let's take a look!

After the excellent first volume "Building Wargame Terrain" Tony Harwood has released the follow-up book: "More Wargame Terrain" with more articles on how to create top quality terrain for the tabletop.

From the Outside: Production Value

This perfect bound, full colour soft-cover book has a total of 118 pages from front to back. The layout and production is pretty much the same as the first book so nothing new to explain here.


The table of contents for More Wargame Terrain

Inner Values: Articles and Tutorials

There are eight articles that show a wide variety of techniques and tips: Creating and painting thatched roofs, Spanish canal roofs, woodwork, stonework and lots more. They work both as tutorials for recreation and as a source of inspiration of how to use leftover stuff as well as dedicated materials to create terrain.



My personal highlight is the last article of the Large Town House: This is the kind of house that I admire from the buildings Tony did for GrandManner.



"More Wargame Terrain" is the logical next step after "Building Wargame Terrain". The buildings and techniques become more complex. From scratch-building to painting tips there is something there for every wargamer interested in creating buildings for the tabletop. With my own scratch-built buildings awaiting me for my Port of Gierburg gaming board I am happy to have this book in my tool box.

For order information about the book, visit Tony Harwood's blog.
