In this series, renowned historical illustrator, Peter Dennis breathes life into the 16th-19th Century paper soldier and invites the reader to re-fight the wars that surged across Europe as Louis XIV fought to establish French dominance over its neighbours. Refight the colour and spectacle of the Wars of Spanish Succession with French, British and Allied infantry, cavalry and artillery.
All the ‘Paper Soldier’ books contain figure sheets, as complete a collection of the types needed for the subject war as I could think of, and terrain items, trees and buildings. The ‘source book’ idea is that the reader is invited to copy the pages as often as he needs to build his army. Figure stands are made with glue and scissors, but wargaming is a craft hobby, and the work required is much less demanding than traditional figure painting. Andy Callan, who has a long track record in wargames innovation has come up with rules sets designed to be playable and easily understood by the beginner.
