Golden Roses. Austro-Hungarian style army 1755-1763.

Watermarked PDF

This colorful album is intended for making a playable skirmish-army of 18th century soldiers.

The author of the drawings is inspired by rules like "Rebels and Patriots". We hope this album will delight fans of this game and many other games too.

Although the army of Golden Roses is a generic 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.

During the Seven Years' War 1756-1763, special Free Corps were formed in all armies. These "Freikoprs" conducted reconnaissance and small operations on their own. The corps included all types of troops, even artillery. Often the uniforms of such "armies" had their own unique features. We think the Skirmish format and the Rebels and the Patriots rules are great for playing small clashes between such Freikorps.

The Austrian Empress Maria Theresa relied on the Hungarian nobility, and the number of Hungarian regiments in the army increased significantly in the 1740s. You can choose your Leader between Hungarian and German. Residents of the Turkish borderlands formed irregular light infantry units. The Hussars were the best all-round cavalry for the Free Corps - use them as Light or Shock Cavalry according to Rebels and Patriots rules.

The album contains 8 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.

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.
