How’s that for an Autograph!

In Osprey Adventures
I suspect, in another year or so, aRU-MOR, will be one of Osprey Adventures most popular artists. With Odin coming out in two months and the mysterious ‘Bug Hunts’ due out later in the year, readers are going to get to see a lot more of her artwork...Continue Reading
The Second Battle of Sirte on the 22 March 1942 saw a British naval convoy putting up a considerable fight against a stronger Italian Regia Marina squadron - a brave defence of a resupply convoy intended to bring aid to Malta. Although the British ships were able to protect the convoy during the battle, the delay that they incurred allowed Axis airforces to prepare for the arrival of the convoy at Malta - with Italian and German aircraft repeatedly attacking the craft, and destroying much of the convoy.Continue Reading

Their attention to detail and drive for historical accuracy (obviously within the boundaries set down by the need to actually create an entertaining experience) is pretty unique within the video game industry.Continue Reading

This month Osprey is releasing CAM 279: Appomattox 1865, conveniently just in time for the 150th anniversary of the battle.  A few people might be wondering why we are publishing a book on Appomattox, a place better known as the sight of a surrender rather than a battle!Continue Reading
