Eagles, Swords and Bayonets

Watermarked PDF

The following set of rules covers the period from 1790 to 1815 in Europe and Russia. The intent of these rules is speed of play and while trying to return the grand tactical flavor of the Napoleonic Wars. 

ln the past we have played many rules for the Napoleonic period and have found them floundering just as the heat of the battle was getting interesting. Red tape, too many odd rules, all in the name of the reaiism. it is just too unbelieveable for gaming.                                                                                                                                

So what we have done here, is sort through all the good, the bad and the ugly of all the rules we have played, and tried to come up with a set that will stay together when the real fighting starts.                                                                                                                

Many rule sets have good qualities about them. What we have done here is try to take all those good thing and make a grand tactical miniature wargame out of them for 15mm to 20 mm figures. With little difficulty one can  adapt these rules to fit 6, 10, 25, 30 or 40 mm figures, however we use is 15 mm at this moment in time.  

The rules are for grand tactical division and corps play although there is no reason you cannot use them for tactical regimental level games. Players do not need tons of dice just a few D-10 and D-6 dice wil do. There is no writing of rules and most games can be played in three to four hours with resolution.

A neat and elegant set of wargame rules for Napoleonic era land battles fought at a high level, regiment or above, and yet accommodating the influence of individual leaders. It's a turn-based system, quite logical in approach, written with an ey [...]

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.
