For The Masses

For The Masses

ZIP File
The tent was filled with the smell of blood and battle. General deMirian was dead; it was up to him, Captain Hans deRinoit, to lead the troops now. What remaining forces he had under his command were tired, beaten down and filled with despair. "How is it possible," he thought, "for that so-called army of misshapen creatures to be so incredibly well organized? Perhaps one of the Duguth leaders has gotten himself an object of some power."

A low rumble from the battlefield filled deRinoit with fear and anger. "There's that confounded beast ripping the very hills up from the earth again. How are we to combat these monsters if the land itself is working against us?"

Pulling his helmet on for his final battle, deRinoit spared a passing glance at the tactical map describing troop locations. At last, he saw it! The maneuver that would oust these foul beasts from his territory had been staring at him without him even noticing. If only he can hold his troops together for this final stand to their victory!

For the Masses is a complete fantasy mass-combat wargame system, designed for use with 15mm miniatures, although any line of miniatures from 6mm up can be used for play. But it is also much more: The flexibility of the system allows players to use any fantasy setting and armies to play out famous fantastical scenarios and ancient epic battles.

Several sample army lists are included in the book but the real strength of For the Masses is the unit creation system. This system encourages players to be creative, use their imagination and have fun, which is the way wargaming should be.

Sorry to say but I found this game to be wanting. Not enough army lists and requiring too much work from the gamer to create the armies and the ones provided aren't generic enough to help the beginner. The hex system is a pain too and t [...]

This is a great alternate set of rules for fantasy miniature wargames. Because it's not tied to any specific line of minis, you can use any figures at all. The book has an extensive section on building your own units with whatever abilities you like, [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
