Imperial Skies Print Edition

Imperial Skies Print Edition

Softcover, Premium Color Book (8.5" x 11")

This is the print edition of Imperial Skies and is printed in both Europe and USA, so if you order in either region you will have a local copy printed.  I have selected the premium quality print option for a proffesional finish to the book.  

Imperial Skies is a Miniature battle game for lighter than air ships.  There is a range of miniatures availible from Brigade Models in the UK, which cover many nation airships. Statistics are provided in the book for all models they produce as of September 2016.  Future releases by Brigade models will be supported with additional statistic cards. This game is supported and sold by Brigade Models out of the UK and they ship the miniatures worldwide.

The book itself is full colour with lots of examples of gameplay, charts and play guides. 

It is a fantasy miniatures game set in a period from the late 1800's trhough the Great War and into the Interwar period. Players can select a period and a fleet from a nation they prefer and set to battle in the air.  

This is a photo of some of Jonathan Rogers collection. His American Great White fleet in action over the Pacific.  


Here are some German models from my collection, including some fixed wing air-boats. 


Here are a couple of samples of content. 



These videos provide an overview of the kind of gameplay to expect.

You need cards to play this game.
But the book will fall appart if you try to photocopy them from it.
It is not worth buying the printed version.

29,- bucks for a 120 p. book is overpriced!
Normally the pdf is not only 25% cheaper than the book. This is also exaggerated.

I forked over the bucks for the book without a whimper, but have been wondering about the promised support. I know folks that bought the British cards, and I was waiting for a deck to run as an opponent, ANY opponent.

I'd willingly take 'mericans, just to run Plan Red, Edwardian-style, if not the usual 'Hun'.

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.
