Rules, Campaigns, Painting Guides, Terrain Making and Historical Backgrounds. In this edition, called the Black Compendium, we have all sorts of things, including fascinating historical works on Egyptian-Hittite War by ancient expert and author Nigel Stillman, plus The Irish Brigade in the American Civil War by David Bickley. Painting is covered by Kevin Dallimore with the most in depth guide to painting a single model we have ever published! Also we have three sets of rules from Jake Thornton, one for Ancient Greeks, one for English Civil War and one for the Second World War! Scenery building is covered by Craig Pauls and his wonderful medieval castle of the imagination.
