Battalion: North Africa '40 - '43 BETA (6mm)

Watermarked PDF

Battalion is a world war two rule set detailing the North Africa Campaign from 1940 to 1943. 

It is 1:1 miniature to real life counterpart representation.  Using 6mm scale miniatures and terrain.  Players may wish to use 3 or 10mm miniatures also but other scales are not officialy supported.

The rules are detailed yet fast.  Action is decisive, ranges are of engagement are long and movement distances are also relatively big.

What you see is generally what you get and the game has a lot less abstraction compared to other wargames.

The game features a quick play sheet, there are charts to look up sometimes.

Average game should last about 3.5 hours and 7 turns.


This game is

  • in development
  • incomplete
  • subject to changes, minor and radical
  • a work in progress
  • unillustrated

Buying this BETA does notget you the finished version of the game!  However, I endeavour to make available a discount for around double the value of the beta agaisnt the finished game.

Sorry, but I'm mystified as to how you expect people to pay you $4 to be able to help you fix an unfinished, broken, incomplete set of rules (not to mention not even getting a final copy of them...)

Stay mystified, Chris. I've no interest in the number of downloads, I want valid critique and feedback from people who actually play the game, not other people who are writing rules and want ideas. I would rather have 10 people buy it than 1000 receive it for free because those 10 people will feel more invested and are more likely to give some input rather than 1000 people who look it and then discard it. The minor monetary value placed on this also means I have a responsibility to my customers to make it work rather than just abandon it or otherwise do half a job.

I'm not misleading anyone, look at the product description! There is a hell of a lot of content for the theatre planned for this book! It will be an awesome resource for wargames on North Africa by the time I am finished.

That would be great if they got the $4 toward the final version.

And that, boys and girls, is how you write a disclaimer.

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.
