River Riders. Anglo-Danes 1015-1070. 28mm paper soldiers.

Watermarked PDF

The conquest of England by King of Denmark Knut the Great led to the formation of a unique culture, combining the Anglo-Saxon and Scandinavian features. The basis of the English army was the permanent guard detachments (Huskarls) and the land aristocracy (Tans). These warriors were well armed and trained.

During danger, a militia (Fird) was convened from peasants. Militias armed themselves and rarely had good weapons and armor. However, it was not just a crowd! The English Fird was able to staunchly fight in close formation when the warriors stood shoulder to shoulder and defended each other, like ancient hoplites. Such a system could withstand the attacks of the Vikings and even horse knights. A small number of archers and light infantry with throwing spears usually supported the Fird phalanx.

Although the Army of River Riders is a fictional compilation of characters, the author of the reconstruction relied on historical prototypes. You can safely use this army for battles with fantastic and historical opponents.

The album contains 4 color sheets for self-printing and making game figures. Stands and bases are not included in the album and are made by the players themselves in accordance with the requirements of the selected rules of the game.

I purchased this set as well as the Norman/Breton set. Both are GREAT! Just the right amount of detail. The poses are very animated and there is a good selection of figure types. I would recommend these to any war gamer. I plan to buy more of these as they come out. Excellent work!

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.
