I think Sam Mustafa gets it just about right with his books – there’s some art work in there, there are some pics of figures just as you’d find in a decent wargames article in a good magazine, and there are loads of examples and diagrams etc showing you just what he means. And he tends to put everything into one book as well, with extra stuff as online freebies (mostly scenarios etc).

 

The problem with the “appealing to veteran wargamers” thing that someone mentioned above is that what seems obvious or usual to one set of wargamers somewhere might be completely at odds with the received wisdom of another set of wargamers elsewhere in the world. If you don’t explain your concepts clearly or give examples, it’s just not going to work.
