Director Henry Hyde is a published author, edited wargaming magazines for over ten years, has been a graphic designer for more than a quarter of a century and has been at the digital cutting edge for over 20 years.
THE DIGITAL AGE
We all love books – and Henry’s first work was a 520-page magnum opus – but having a library in your pocket is simply amazing. Gladius aims to deliver high quality digital publications to your favourite devices in the formats you want.
IN THE ZONE
Hobbyist as well as a digital craftsman, Henry has been a wargamer since 1969 and reading military history and fantasy for almost as long. He knows precisely what enthusiasts want – because he is one himself.
With no print overheads to cover, Gladius will pitch its products keenly so that enthusiasts everywhere will find stuff they love at affordable prices. We hope to offer print-on-demand as an option for those who want it.

Following the positive feedback I received about the Basic Collection, (though with 27 variants, they certainly weren’t all ‘basic’!), I realised there were so many more possible permutations that would be useful to wargamers that I decided to carry on creating more. Terrain Squares for Wargamers Collection Part 2 is the first of the extra volumes, and Read more about Terrain Squares for Wargamers Collection Part 2 On Sale Now[…]
