"Just received my copy in the office post. Absolutely superb - high production values - lovely design and good-quality printing. The text looks very interesting and helpful too. A+
Congratulations on an excellent product."

"Just received my copy in the same post as some more figures from Perry. Possibly the best £20 I've spent. A fantastic effort. Can't wait for volume 2."

"Got mine today too. Really impressed spot on sir."


"Picked mine up today. Excellent quality and an interesting read. Good work, Nuno."


"Just received mine – excellent quality content, high production values – extremely good value for money.
Oh, and the packaging was incredibly robust – puts Amazon to shame.
Highly recommended – I'm hoping Nuno is tempted to produce some similar guides for other periods if he can match this quality."

Salute 2013 - Kingscarbine Miniatures


First figures and manikins have arrived from the caster. These two Paraguayan officers are the first of the range but lots more to come in the near future. Now that Steve has the manikins and equipment things will go much faster.

Salute 2013 - All Honour is Lost


I had a great day at Salute. Met many people personally -always good to put a face to a name- chatted with fellow gamers and made some new friends. 

The book sold well and I was overwhelmed by the positive feedback of the buyers. Thanks must go to the Perry brothers and Steve May for having me there. Those guys are A-OK.
