The Empire strikes back: regular Battlegames contributor Dan Mersey and the Editor went to visit Games Workshop Headquarters in Nottingham this summer, and this is our in-depth and, perhaps, controversial report.

The Wars of the Faltenian Succession: the first of two sets of rules this issue, in this episode Henry Hyde gives you everything you need to fight your own 18th century campaign, whether real or fictitious.

Table Top Teaser: C S Grant gives us a tricky outflanking scenario, "Losing two fords".

Battles for Wargamers: Lundy's Lane 1814. Stuart Asquith brings us a terrific nightfall battle from the war between Britain and America, with original illustrations by John Parke.

Competition: win a fabulous, pro-painted Perry 28mm ECW gun emplacement.

Then of course we have Larry Leadhead, and an absolutely enormous Recce section, reviewing umpteen items, including the Battleground fantasy card/miniatures game, The Sword and the Flame colonial rules, Washington's VIctory 54mm AWI playsets from All the King's Men, the PDF book The Ultimate Miniatures Painting Guide, Storming the Reich and Ambush Blitz WWII rules, and new releases from Strategia e Tattica, Italeri, Magister Militum, Frontline Wargaming and the Pike and Shot Society.

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.
