The Man Himself, A New Book Cover is Finished and a New Book out from Solway

Here is the finished book cover for Si at Solway for a book that will be out shortly. I cannot tell you much about which book it is going to be or what the book is about, but it does actually feature the chap in this picture. I have to say that I have enjoyed painting this as have tried to bring in some of the elements this chap is associated with like the broom handled Mauser, the Oxford Yeomanry uniform and the famous cigar. I hope that you like him and I hope I have captured the chap well.


While on the subjects of new books from Solway, a new sourcebook is available from them. Called Tales from the Fall of the Empire,Part one Europe, the Middle East and Africa. In this Volume, reprinting and updating material in the original fall of the Empire includes an outline of Foreign policy for the VBCW factions and world great power. There is a new piece on the Central European War of September 1938, The Middle East and the second battle of the Nile, Colonial and faction rivalry in East Africa, The Curious British Expedition to Belgium and we have included all the daring do adventures of Wynd Grator and Joshua force. Sorry for the plug but needs must, etc, etc.

  2. A very characterful new cover. Solway do seem to be bringing out book after book at the moment. We all love background material for games so this might not be a bad thing.
