Good article on Latin American armour

In Military History
Now, while I dilly and dally and dance from topic to topic when it comes to most aspects of military history, there are (as regular blog readers, and certainly most of the Osprey Bloggers, will know) two subjects for which I am a stone cold sucker. Essentially, if it's Latin America, I'm sold. Similarly, if it's up-gunned and up-armoured vehicles* (the more improvised the better!), I'm there with bells on.Continue Reading

In Military History
Congratulations to Ildirim, who wins the Postcard Competition! A few weeks back, I asked for suggestions of great artwork from our books to be included in our forthcoming postcard collection, Soldier.Continue Reading

Terrain building inspiration

In Military History
Joe came into the office today with a little surprise for me – some adobe buildings in 15mm scale, made out of balsa wood and intended for some wargaming further down the line. Now, Joe is a bit of a legend when it comes to making terrain – I've got some cool hillbilly shacks (now with added outhouse) that he put together for one of our projects that only partially got off the ground before we (I) were (was) sidetracked by other shiny things, and a load of English Civil War-y barns and farm buildings in various stages of ruin. Recently, he's taken to moulding and casting his own flagstones, walls and the like in plaster, resulting in some exceptionally chunky Medieval structures.Continue Reading

The British Army go into battle with Osprey

In Military History
... Osprey Assault body armour, that is. Come autumn, the existing Osprey tactical kit will be replaced with the new, lighter Assault design, intended to provide the soldier with the same level of protection, with less of the weight and cumbersome bulk. Intended specifically for troops on foot, the redesign comes about following experiences in Afghanistan, where foot patrols are more common due to the terrain and conditions...Continue Reading

Dogs of War

In Military History
I came across this video the other day, and it started me thinking (rarely a good sign)... Given how well-received our recent New Vanguard on War Elephants has been, and the comments on our April Fools' blog, the idea of a New Vanguard title on dogs in war might not be as impossible as it might once have seemed.Continue Reading

Napoleonics R Us

In Military History
As a long-time Osprey fan, one of the most frustrating aspects of having published thousands of books in their 40-year history is the inevitable fact that sometimes, some of them will be out-of-print. In best-case scenarios, this is resolved by finding a second-hand copy; in a worst-case scenario, a volume will have been out of print for so long that it's impossible to find a copy that doesn't cost the GDP of a small banana republic.Continue Reading
The results of a series of strategic meetings in 2007/08 are now starting to filter through into new series and new titles. Alongside Raid in September and Command in 2010 we are pleased to announce another new series scheduled for 2010. This new series War Animal reflects the unprecedented response to our recent New Vanguard title on War Elephants and allows us to examine from yet another previously unexplored angle, forgotten aspects of both campaigns and combatants.Continue Reading
Every now and then we like to try something a little different. Last year it was the hugely popular Men-at-Arms Celebration. This year our departure from our usual book publishing programme came in the form of Battle: The Osprey Postcard Collection.Continue Reading
