These rules have been designed so that players can fight typical small battles between European Colonial armies and their opponents during the period between 1875 and 1910. They use a gridded battlefield, which removes the need to measure both move distances and weapon ranges, thus speeding up the whole process of fighting a wargame. It also removed any doubts or possible disputes as to whether or not a unit has moved too far or if it is in range or not. They also incorporate simple combat resolution systems that likewise speed up game play. The armies needed to fight battles with these rules are small by most wargames standards. This means that you can 'raise' lots of small armies rather than a couple of big ones.

The book contains:

  • An Introduction
  • Definitions of the terms used in the book
  • Explanatory diagrams and Illustrations
  • General Rules
  • Battle Rules
  • Army Lists for fifteen different conflicts

Please note that the rules in this book were a precursor to The Portable Wargame rules.

Format

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.
