New Wargaming Stock

We taken the opportunity of a recent restock to expand our range of titles published by the History of Wargames Project.  

These include studies of wargaming in the C19th and early C20th; classic texts by authors such as Donald Fetherstone, Phil Dunn and Stuart Asquith; and professional wargaming during the Cold War.

For more details of these and other titles, see our Modelling and Wargaming section.

The Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge

We are pleased to announce that, for the third year running, Diplomatist Books is a sponsor of the Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge.

The Challenge is an event around the painting of wargaming figures, open to people of all skills and levels of productivity.  It's a friendly competition in that the 'challenge' is to meet a target you set yourself and the fellow painters are invariably supportive (despite some banter between old-timers!).   There is no adversarial judging - indeed this year's theme is fellowship and camaraderie.

Nevertheless, prizes are given by popular vote, at the discretion of the organisers and for various bonus rounds.  We will be offering a £15.00 voucher as one of those prizes.

Read more about the challenge and how to join here.

For those of you of a wargaming bent, stick around as I'll be announcing some interesting new stock here tomorrow!
