Hell and Uncivil Disorder

Watermarked PDF

Generic modern (and even SF) wargames rules for the scruffier and more disreputable side of warfare. This set of rules is for wargames set after the start of the 20th century, we’ve even fought SF games with them. Whilst we’ve normally used them with 15mm/20mm/28mm figures, the rules evolved out of a single sheet of A4 set of 1/300 rules known as Kalashnikov Tribal. So we play the games using 6mm figures as well.

The basic premise is that most people issued lethal weapons after minimal training aren’t particularly competent. The weapon you issue them with isn’t terribly important because they’re not using it properly anyway. But at least they turned up, you’ve got to give them credit for that.

Also we took a different approach to such things as calling in support. Yes there are proper systems and procedures. But the commander with the gift of the gab and the ability to sound convincing and who knows the right people is still going to have more chance of air support when he feels that he needs it. So that you don’t fall into the habit of assuming that you’re part of a competent organisation, we decided that the whole ‘calling up support,’ business was best thought of as a magic system. What other wargames rules have rules that let you wear mirror shades and play round rock music at your opponents?

Another area where these rules differ from others is that you get the Media. After all, the only reason you see the fighting on the TV is that the media are present, and you see what the media lets you see. So they too are an element of the situation that the player has to take advantage of.

Then there are demagogues, mobs, controlling street protests, and even NGOs (Non-Governmental Organisations) who are delivering aid, rescuing hostages and generally ‘doing good’.

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.
