Wasteland Essentials 1: Paper Miniatures, Templates, and a Brand New Scenario

Watermarked PDF

An item repeatedly requested by fans, Wasteland Essentials 1 is a companion product for the main This Is Not a Test rulebook and features 32mm printable figures, counters, and templates to enhance the scenarios in TNT. Lavishly illustrated by Spanish artist David Arenas, we think the full-color high-quality artwork in Wasteland Essentials 1 raises the bar for excellence in printable game aids.

Paper Miniatures

For use with scenarios where you need extra miniatures beyond just your warband, such as Pest Control and The Caravan, Wasteland Essentials 1 has you covered with rad zombies, irradiators, lightly armed caravanners, and cargo animals. Full color instructions are included with clear demonstrative pictures by pillar of the hobby games industry, Dave Taylor.

Templates and Counters

Beyond just miniatures, Wasteland Essentials 1 also has templates and counters for all of the hazards of the wastes from the This Is Not a Test main book such as ripwinds, emberquakes, poisonous gases, and more.

Bonus Scenario

A scenario is included to showcase all of this great material in Wasteland Essentials 1. In the Lost Caravan your warband must recover the remnants of a destroyed caravan train while braving dangerous and unpredictable wasteland phenomena. All for profit of course.

We think Wasteland Essentials is one of the best downloadable products on the market! Further, as an pdf, Wasteland Essentials 1 can be used to print as many copies as you need. Whether you need 10 rad zombies or 10,000 the choice is yours.

Part 3 of the trifecta of rules that were available when I first bought this game. This supplement doesn't add any new rules specifically like the Mutant Cannibals but it does add new scenarios and tons of printable templates & figures. Now [...]

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.
