For Queen and Planet - The Martian Punitive Expedition - 1901


For Queen and Planet – The Martian Punitive Expedition - 1901

Supplemental Scenario Book

A planet to be conquered, vengeance to be wreaked and glory to be won. That is the motivation of the commander of the Martian Punitive Expedition of 1901.

With these rules, you can take the role of the British commander tasked by the Queen with taking the fight to the Cephalopod invaders of Earth. You have been given three Ether flyers and the best soldiers the British Empire could muster and you are headed to Mars to do the Queen’s bidding.

Q&P is designed to balance the mass and ferocity of the local races of Mars against the technology and training of the Colonial powers and to provide a fair and reasonable struggle for both imperial General and Martian Odwar.

This is not a stand alone rule set and requires:

For Queen and Planet: The Imperial Wars of Earth and Mars - 1845 - 1930

This rule set does include the following:

  • All rules necessary to play a VSF version of the game.
  • An alternative timeline for VSF genre play.
  • Unit lists detailing British, Imperial Red Martian, Black Martian, Green Martian and Cephalopod forces.
  • A eight-scenario campaign that will allow you to play your way through the British Punitive Expedition to Mars in 1901 from the initial encounters with Red Martian Miltia forces all the way through to the final destruction of the British forces on Mars.
  • A blank unit command sheet.


Each of the scenarios in this rulebook is written to be fought as a pure VSF battle. The theme for this scenario book is fairly light-hearted and many of the scenarios are spun out from scenes from movies, that you will likely recognize. So enjoy and have fun and do not be afraid to develop your own scenarios and share them with us on our facebook page at:

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.
