The PDF version is identical to the original printed version other than minor alterations to update subscription information and indicate the new format. The file is 144dpi, sufficient to enable you to 'zoom in' on pictures and achieve a pleasing print-out at home.

The master's brush: a tribute to Angus McBride. Penned by Angus Konstam, who collaborated with Angus Mcbride on a number of projects, and with some glorious illustrations by the master himself, courtesy of Osprey Publishing.

The wonders of the Internet: Greg Horne takes a look at Eureka's 100 Club scheme and their Arquebusiers de Grassin.

Forward Observer: Mike Siggins is in positive mood as he surveys the hobby.

The Wars of the Faltenian Succession: Henry Hyde describes ways to involve personalities in your campaigns and battles.

Table Top Teaser: C S Grant gives us a delightful encounter scenario, "The Battle of Soggy Bottom".

To Boldly Go: Guy Hancock writes his last piece before taking a sabattical, explaining why he's grown tired of WFB 2,000 point slugfests and sticking together endless plastic pieces!

Then of course we have Larry Leadhead, and the usual extensive Recce section, reviewing umpteen items.

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.
