Proof of the pudding
Posted by Martin on January 7, 2010
I’ve spent the last couple of evenings poring over PDF of my soon-to-be-published Wargames Illustrated article. Dan e-mailed this draft version to me over the holiday period and I promised to get back to him with any errors that I spotted.
A few of the things I noticed were misunderstandings and oddities that crept in during the layout process. But the chastening part of the process was that I realized that several of the errors were down to yours truly and the copy I originally submitted to Dan. Now the typos I can shrug off but the factual errors got me more worried. I had a few moments of imagining the sort of letters to the editor that some of my more glaring mistakes might have generated. Hopefully, I’ve spotted all of them though I can see that regular BfK readers will enjoy the challenge of gleefully teasing me about any that I’ve missed.
The article looks nicely laid out and extends to a surprising ten pages. Dan’s added a little extra with a painting guide that uses some AB 15mm figures as an example. So all there is to do now is sit back and wait for the next issue of Wargames Illustrated to hit the news-stands.
