Osprey will be working from home from Tuesday 17th March. We plan to continue all our operations, while reducing risk of infection by having staff work from home. Please note that we are doing our best to manage incoming post and parcels. For the time being please refrain from sending items to our offices and please assume that items that you have sent to us, have not arrived with their intended recipient. Our priority remains the wellbeing of staff, authors, customers, freelancers, suppliers and distributors. We would like to thank all for their support whilst we transition to virtual operations.

Sneak Peek at February Artwork

In Military History, Featured

It’s time for another sneak peek at some of our artwork from upcoming releases. Today, we will be looking at three plates from our February series books.

Combat 23: New Zealand Infantryman vs German Motorcycle Soldier by David Greentree

Illustrated by Adam Hook

New Zealand Infantrymen
This first piece of artwork by Adam Hook in New Zealand Infantryman vs German Motorcycle Soldier depicts the New Zealand rearguard carrying out an ambush on the Kradschützen-Gruppe, who has unsuspectingly driven straight into them. The image shows the rearguard with a captured German MG 34 machine gun, a few riflemen, a Bren-gunner and Tommy-gunners.

Duel 67: Spitfire II/V vs Bf 109F by Tony Holmes

Illustrated by Jim Laurier and Gareth Hector

Bf 109F takes aim
We move to the skies next with Spitfire II/V vs Bf 109F. In this image, the Bf 109F takes aim at the Spitfire, with its use of a Revi C12D.

Campaign 304: Darwin 1942 by Bob Alford

Illustrated by Jim Laurier

darwin 1942
Finally, we have an image from Darwin 1942, which follows the Japanese attack on the Australian port of Darwin. This plate depicts Lieutenant Thomas H. Moorer and his co-pilot, Ensign Walter H. Mosley, escaping their badly damaged aircraft, set on fire by the Japanese.

That’s all for this week, do let us know which piece of artwork is your favourite, and which of our upcoming February releases you’re most looking forward to.
