For King or Empress

Rules for Miniatures Battles Covering the Seven Years War

"Rogues! Do you want to live forever...?"
With those words from their steely-eyed sovereign ringing in their ears, the Prussian infantry tightened ranks and marched towards the white-clad Austrians waiting for them on the hill. The drums beat, echoing in the hearts of thousands of musketeers. Meanwhile, the generals looked on, frowning at the dispositions of their battle lines. Were there enough troops there to meet the enemy’s thrust? Should the reserves be shifted?

For King or Empress is a big battle, miniatures game for refighting the Seven Years War, 1756-62. Everything you need to play is here, including:

  • Easy-to-understand mechanics, illustrated with diagrams and photographs
  • A system that brings the battle to a finish, so victory is won on the tabletop◊
  • Interesting ways to set up battles, from march-on attacks against a deployed defender, to a grand tactical system conducted before the battle.
  • A logical point system, allowing you to refight battles from History
  • Army lists for all major and minor combatants of the Seven Years War, broken into early and late-war periods
  • Two tiers of army sizes, which allow you to field small forces quickly, or expand them to major armies like those controlled by Frederick the Great!
  • Optional rules to tweak just the right feel for your games, or put them in a Historical, campaign context
  • A flexible basing system, allowing you to use troops you already own or ◊ guide those just starting out

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.
