THIS IS AN EXPANSION. You need The Great Heathen Army to play this game.

The Great Heathen Army was a collection of eight Viking land battles set in what would become England. This scenario book expansion provides four new battles set during the same period in Ireland, utilizing the maps and counters from The Great Heathen Army.

Cenn Fuait (917) finds the Irish on the offensive until the sudden arrival of enemy reinforcements turns it into a desperate rearguard action. Ath Cliath (919) sees six Irish Kings band together in a disastrous attempt to break Viking power. At Glen Mama (999), rivals Brian Boru and Mael Sechnaill join forces against the rebellious Mael Morda and Sigtrygg Silkbeard, with Dublin as the prize.

And finally, there's Clontarf (1014) - one of the most famous battles in Irish history. This is the big one, folks - the biggest and longest battle in the entirety of the Shields & Swords II series, sprawling across two maps, with over fifty units on a side.

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.
