The book also gives (brief) background information on relevant issues, such as the Tilean cities of Remas and Luccini or the Ogre tribe of the Blooded Gut. It is lavishly illustrated too.
The most impressive thing in the ‘Monsters & Mercenaries Collectors Guide’ though, is not it’s size or the amount of useful information included. Neither are the usual photos of Golden Demon winners’ entries nor the dioramas and conversions presented. It is the fully converted Araby themed army by Justin Hill. It simply has to be seen to be believed.
Finally do check what G.W. has to say for this collectors guide…
P.S. I do consider this guide a very good buy. Just not intended for everyone. It is a glorified miniature catalogue after all.
