Sneak Peek at July's Artwork!

Today on the blog we're taking a look at some of the artwork from our July 2019 publications. Let us know what you think in the comments section, and if there are any August publications you'd like to see the artwork from next month be sure to mention it below!

Our first piece of artwork comes from Combat 42: British Airborne Soldier versus Waffen SS Soldier, and was requested by KAL9000. It shows the fight for the Koude Herberg road junction, 20 September 1944, where two platoons from C Coy, 1 Border engaged advancing German forces, knocking out two PzKpfw B2(f) tanks and breaking up the German infantry attack.

The second piece of artwork comes from Men-at-Arms 527: Roman Army Units in the Western Provinces, depicting three figures as detailed below:

Centre Figure - Aurelius Marcellinus as Dux Alpes Cottiae (?), mid‑3rd century

Right Figure - Eques, Cohors II Raetorum; Sorviodunum, Limes Raeticus, AD 260

Anthem = arnhem, predictive text! If you are taking requests for August could I ask for Kos and Leros 1943, please.

Nice artwork. I was hoping the anthem book would have had the paras defending the bridge, hopefully there will be one in the book.
