Mel Bose - The Terrain Tutor - has been building terrain for almost as long as he can remember. When he was five, Mel built playsets for his little green army men in the corner of a craft store. He was often assisted by model railroaders who were regulars at the store and, by the time he turned 15, Mel was primed for a life of building terrain.

Mel has traveled the world, as a medic in the army, a physiotherapist, and even a salesman. He has worked with people from all walks of life, and looked at things from many different perspectives. It is this approach that he brings to his successful YouTube channel, The Terrain Tutor. Since 2014, Mel has made a living from sharing his passion - teaching people everything he knows about building terrain for tabletop wargaming, for hobbyists, clubs, displays, and for dioramas - and it's that passion and knowledge that he is bringing to this book.
