Overview
-

In this title in the Battle for Britain series, well-known historical illustrator Peter Dennis takes the battle out to sea, supplying all the artwork needed to create the navies which clashed in the English channel at a moment of supreme danger for the realm. Artwork is also suppled for a printable squared sea surface, coastline and islands. Here, the galleons, Nao and galleasses of the Spanish invader can clash again with the sea dogs of Elizabeth I using simple rules from veteran wargamer Andy Callan. This source book shows you how to copy and make any number of simple and colourful ship cut-out models using traditional skills with glue and scissors. To play the game you will need a tabletop playing surface and a handful of dice.

About The Author
-

Peter has made his living as a freelance illustrator for 40 years, mostly working on historical subjects, notably in recent years for Osprey in the UK, and for various wargame figure manufacturers in the form of box art. Jacobites were the subject of his first experiments with paper soldiers. He is half-Scottish and the subject has always had a special appeal. Castles formed a major theme in his days as a children's book illustrator so in 'Castle assault' he is returning to his illustrative roots  and squeezing as much masonry and siege equipment as he can into the format, alongside Bannockburn and more Scottish heroics. Peter has played with toy soldiers in one way or another for most of his life, and his work and hobby come together in this paper soldier revival project with Helion books. He lives in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire, in the UK.

Andy Callan has written many articles in wargames magazines and is renowned for his innovative approach to wargaming.
