About This Edition

Since it was released, Hotwar was supposed to be a game system set in a “diesel Punk” world or focused on the so-called Weird WW2. It was something I wanted to do, but in reality I rehearsed it at first. The initial scale of the game was 28mm, an influence I still had from some old personal projects of mine.
When I made all the updates to Iron Cross, I thought it was time to put Hotwar in my ideas workshop and create a unification of the systems in a single scale of 1/300 or 6mm. I think this decision was made because I was really passionate about the scale and the advantage of it being cheap and taking up little space on a gaming table.

In addition, Iron Cross already has a wide audience of players, as the game material is constantly downloaded/purchased on Wargamevault, a site that today concentrates all my efforts in promoting and selling products.

In this new version, I included a series of new rules and significantly expanded the game by bringing in new units, the magic system, the aliens, and introducing giant units such as the Gargantua. However, I will still greatly expand it in future “Recon Corners,” creating scenarios that encompass a series of connections with Iron Cross, as well as updating a series of armored vehicles from the 1950s for our players.

I believe that now we can provide much more fun for your gaming tables. Along with this, we will be constantly releasing new miniatures for 3D printing that can be used in all our systems. The experience we want to deliver to our wargamers is the most complete possible, taking into account price and quality.

I would like to thank all of you who buy, play, and promote our game systems. We have many players who use our systems on their gaming tables and who really enjoy what we offer you. This spirit always encourages us to produce more and more, considering that nowadays there are so many game options.

In conclusion, as a game designer, I wish everyone that Hotwar can provide you with a lot of fun. May we be present at conventions, events, and clubs around the world through our players. May all of you have great hours of fun!

Please upload a version with either a much lighter background or no background image. This looks incredibly hard on the eyes.

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.
