Warbands and Warfare

Watermarked PDF

Assemble your warband from some of the greatest warrior groups in history! Will you choose an extra centurion, or will you choose an extra Zulu to crush your opponent’s rival warband? Warbands & Warfare hearkens back to a time when kids played with “green army men” and other toy soldiers and created fun and crazy war games to play. There are 27 soldier types to fight with and against, and warband sizes can range from 10 - 200 soldiers.

This fun and crazy war game was something that my son and I created. When I returned home from my second deployment to Afghanistan, my son and I began to play a lot with his toy soldiers and ninjas. My son suggested we try to turn it into a “board” game where we rolled dice.

It started out simple with each person having a soldier and a ninja fight, and whoever rolled the highest number on the D20 would win. Soon we started adding more rules and more soldier types. Eventually we had a game that was much larger than we both anticipated. This game has brought us a lot of fun, frustration, laughs, and overall good times. I hope you enjoy it as well.

This is a low maintenance wargame. All you need is one to two D20s per player, a pencil, and the player sheet in the back of the PDF. Miniatures are strongly encouraged, but are not required.

The players can choose from the following soldiers to put in their warband:

Apache, Assyrian, Aztec Jaguar, Centurion, Commander, Crusader, Diplomat, Gaul Warrior, Israelite Slinger, Janissary Turk, Knight, Longbowman, Maori Warrior, Mongol, Musketeer, Ninja, Persian Immortal, Pirate, Roman Legionary, Samurai, Scottish Highlander, Shaolin Warrior, Spartan Hoplite, Templar, Varangian Guard, Viking Berserker, and Zulu Warrior.

The Warbands and Warfare PDF also has a Player Sheet.

This is very much a simple wargame, and not a traditional wargame. There is no unit movement. The game is divvied up into ranged and melee turns, with only some characters being able to conduct attacks from range. Even though it is simple, there is [...]

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.
