Rampant Self-Promotion 2
I received a copy of Dragon Rampant in the mail today - a gift from Dan for contributing to the book. There was also a copy of Osprey's En Garde! rules in the package - thanks, Dan and Osprey!
What was my contribution, you ask? Well, I submitted a few photos of my figures, and two of them, reproduced in this post, made it into the final product.
I am, of course a regular playtester for Osprey and have been published in a print wargames magazine before (none of those *online* so-called "magazines", I assure you, no siree!), and my photographs are regularly lauded on Flickr (do people still use Flickr these days?) and have (okay, one has) been praised by none less than David duChemin in one of his podcasts, but this is the first time my two hobbies - nay, crafts! - have come together in a single medium.
But seriously, it's all been quite fun and I think Osprey's series of wargame rules have really provided an opportunity for wargamers to participate in the production of a set of wargame rules in a collective, grassroots kind of way.
So do get a copy of the rules - the artwork inside are beautiful - and I hope to be posting battel reports soon.
