A Formidable Enemy


A Formidable Enemy is a fast-paced skirmish game set in the French & Indian War. There are two PDF downloads included with your purchase: a 36 page rulebook, and a 45 page book of army lists and rosters. You can use one of the six premade armies, or create your own force with a comprehensive point system. The game has a historical “feel” through the use of Assets specific to different types of characters & units. Optional “otherworldly” rules are included to take advantage of some of the outstanding figures available for this period. Color photographs of figures from Conquest Miniatures, Eureka Miniatures, AW Miniatures, & Warlord Games, as well as structures by Acheson Creations (all used with permission) illustrate both documents.

Part One contains the game rules (summarized in a 4-page Quick Reference), Assets to personalize your troops (Abilities & Characteristics, Weapons, Artillery, Special Unit Members, Equipment, Vehicles, Animals, & Structures), Liabilities, Otherworldly Assets (including Divine Interventions), Templates, Markers & Tokens, & optional Event Cards.

Part Two contains brief historical information, Army Lists, and Unit Cards for the Indians, French, British, Canadians, & American Colonials. There is also information on Bears, Dogs, Zombyes, & a few other optional (but fun!) non-historical additions to the game (inspired mainly by figures from Conquest Miniatures). There are six sample armies, & information about how to create your own troops & armies.

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.
