Ringeck book

Postby Lyonesse » 22 May 2008 17:08

Ok, given that the original plan to get the Guy Windsor book has now fallen through, I've ordered the sigmund ringeck book, have a talhoffer translation already, and also recently picked up a copy of the following:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Fighting-Guide- ... 340&sr=8-1

Which looks pretty good - the diagrams look to be pretty useful for a beginner like me, however the editing is a little dodgy. Has anyone else come across this book, and if they have, what is their opinion on it? i was thinking it might be useful if used as a back up to the Ringeck book...

Just edited the initial post because it was a little tactless even for me given the author himself is around on this board! (humble apologies, Mr Thomas!)

I have a mind like a steel trap. Which would be great if the damn thing wasn't rusty.

I know you believe you understand what you think I said, but I am not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant. ukn

Have no worries, the Dude is the decentest bloke around (almost). I'd wager he'd be too happy to answer any question you might have about this book.

rofl thats really reassuring...

the book itself I really like, however i really wanted to just make sure I was going to be ok using it as a learning aid alongside the ringeck book... since i didnt know that the author was a member of this forum, rofl!
