Book Review: Armies, Legions & Hordes by Dave Taylor
I highly recommend the book and think it's got a place in just about every gamers library. The pictures are superbly done and it covers both historical and non-historical gaming genres. (OK, it does skew to sciFi / GW stuff but that's where the majority of tabletop gamers are.) The writing style is very clear and the graphics layout easy on the eyes. It's also organized into clear sections by topic for those of you who prefer perusing these materials while in the "private library". I nether condone nor disparage such behavior.
To be honest, this is one of the few hobby "how-to" books I've read cover to cover - mostly I just jump around looking for a specific topic or I find the writing style a bit painful to put up with for long periods of time "It puts the matte medium on the ground cover".
Not so with this book - I found it was really fun to read and helped me identify a few bad habits that to change to make my hobby time a bit more productive.
You can purchase the book from Ironheart Artisans or find it on Amazon. For hobby books with limited distribution I try to purchase from a non-Amazon sources as I'd like the author to get a full cut for their work in the hopes they produce more.
My recommendation: Buy the Book - NOW!
