Ferdinand of Brunswick

Watermarked PDF

Ferdinand of Brunswick features 10 historical miniatures scenarios covering the fighting in western Germany in the Seven Years War.  These scenarios are designed to be played in an evening (around three hours) with a clear winner after the last turn.  You need a reasonable number of figures.  For example the most French infantry battalions required is sixteen. Some scenarios cover an entire small battle such as Mehr.  Other scenarios cover the most important portion of a major battle, such as the evening attack at Vellinghausen.  In others, I selectively reduced the forces in a battle.  For example at Krefeld, I used about 66% of the actual number of battalions.   The most famous battle, Minden, is not included because I simply could not find a way to make the French cavalry’s frontal assaults on the Allied infantry an interesting/balanced scenario.  Trying to do the entire battle would require way more troops, time and terrain than most gamers can muster.  Victory is decided by Victory Points (VP) which assures there is a clear winner. The VP are based on what the respective armies were trying to accomplish.  Each scenario was playtested four or more times and was designed to be played using any battalion based set of rules. The listed board size is for 15mm figures.  However these can be played with 25mm figures by expanding the board appropriately.  

The scenarios are as follows:  Hastenback (Chevert’s flank assault); Krefeld (the Crown Prince’s flank assault); Sanderhausen (the entire battle), Mehr (the entire battle), Lutterberg (the Franco-Saxon assault on the Allied left flank); Bergen (the 10:00 a.m. attack); Warburg (the Crown Prince’s flank assault); Kloster Kamp (the dawn assault on the Auvergne regiment); Vellinghausen (the evening attack on the Allied camp); Wilhelmsthal (the Allied assault on the Comte de Stainville).

Happy to report on visiting library and re-downloading the marking is not there. Must have been a file mix-up somewhere.

Huge marking of diagonally across every page. Very distracting. Had I known I would not have purchased this product. Bought this and Campaigns of the Bourbons based on experience with Skirmish Campaigns print offerings. Bad move on my part.

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.
