Malbrough s'en va-t-en guerre - Wargame and Campaign Rules for the War of the Spanish Succession


Real Time Wargames Gamebooks aim to inspire new and veteran Wargamers alike with novel sets of rules for a variety of periods. The systems are adaptable to any scale between 2mm & 28mm.

This set of table-top and campaign rules are designed to be used to represent the Wars of the Spanish Succession.  There are two elements to the game: A Campaign game using a set of playing cards and the resulting figure battle. The former will give the latter its context and players must be careful to judge that the fight is worth the candle as the epitome of Generalship was the avoidance of risky battles. If players wish, a simple system can be generated to create one-off battles, so that each battle is different or to get players used to the novel battle system

This Gamebook contains:

  • A brief summary of the period and details of the forces of the participants.
  • A set of battlefield rules that can be used to recreate either the early or late period battles.
  • A set of battlefield rules that can be used to recreate either the early or late period battles.
  • A4 Coloured Sheet of Counter: Stick to card or foamboard and cut out
  • Weekly Weather Sheet of Counters: Stick to card or foamboard and cut out
  • 2 x A4 Army Sheets: One for each side. Used for placing your contingents and generals on.
  • 2 x A4 Contingent & Army Morale Sheets
  • A4 Year, Battlefield Clock & Victory Point Chart:

No worries -we hope to have the 1870 Franco Prussian Wars rules and the Shenandoah rules published next week. Honour and Glory (7YW) is next up.

We are hoping to get all of those on here - we are having a problem transposing the maps into the pdf format needed. Hopefully fix it soon.

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.
