Winter Hammer. Easy Winter War gaming.


Frozen forests, T26 tanks and bitter fighting. The Soviet-Finnish Winter War has it all and now you can delve into it without learning a 500 page rule book.

Winter-Hammer is based on the popular Squad Hammer game engine and is aimed at beer&pretzels war gaming.

Players can pick up the mechanics quickly and with ease, while the rules offer the mechanics you need to set up pick-up battles and fight out a fun war games campaign.

All you need is some suitable figures in a scale you enjoy.

The typical game set up doesn't require more than 10-12 troop stands per player, meaning you can play without having to paint up hundreds of figures.

* * * * *

The only dice needed are simple D6's. 

Troop stands can represent from squads to platoons depending on desired scale and based whichever way you prefer.

Games can be played to completion in an hour in many cases.

Compatible with the Squad Hammer generic war game rules available here and the Russian Civil War version available here

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.
