"This War Without an Enemy” - English Civil War Battlefield Rules & County-Based Campaign System


The English Civil War when gamed at County level gives great opportunities for gaming this fascinating period. You have the problem of controlling areas for your cause, denying them to your enemy and yet always at the whim of the King or Parliament in providing the great central field armies with resources. The great National events of the great battles or the support of the Scots or the arrival of the great central field armies as they maraud through your county makes for a most unpredictable game.

The novel battlefield rules emphasise the limitations of command and allow the games to flow fast and furious such that they are often over in a couple of hours or the time they would have been fought in reality.

Scope: Included are a set of battlefield figure rules for fighting battles up to 6,000- 8,000 men with a full colour Campaign system to fight the war. Thus your battles will have a context of when and why they were fought. There is also a system for fighting one-off battles.

Contents: 56  page Gamebook, 2 x A4 Unit Counters, 1 x A4 Game Counters, A4 sheet of Fate cards Campaign Calendar, 2 x A4 Off-Table Charts, There is a two-page Playsheet (one for the Campaign System one for the Battlefield) and 2 A3 or 4 A4 map of  Worcestershire.


  • Ground Scale: 1” = 10 yards/metres. All combat and movement are by handspan or 6” rules. So a battle is approx. half a mile by a third of a mile
  • Time Scale: 1 Turn = 10-15 minutes
  • Table Size: 6 x 4 ft. up to 8 x 6 ft.
  • Figure/Base ratio: Figures per base according to pocket. We use Pendraken’s 10 mm figures with 12 pike, 8 shot, 4 cavalry or 1 gun and 2-4 crew per base. 1 Base = 50 foot or 25 horse. Ratio is approx. 1:6 to 1:10.

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.
