Battlegames magazine issue 10

Watermarked PDF

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.

Elements-based rules for Ancients: Bob Barnetson and the boys from Edmonton undertaking a major comparative review, including DBA, Armati, Vis Bellica, Warmaster Ancients and Command & Colors Ancients.

A river runs through it: I give a step-by-step photo-lesson in making simple but effective waterways for wargames.

Asquith's way: Stuart Asquith discusses creating 'wargames in a box' as a way into new periods and projects.

In my Wars of the Faltenian Succession series, I deliver part 1 of the siege rules, enabling you to use treachery, starvation, surprise and assault to capture enemy strongholds in fictitious or historical settings.

Mike Siggins has so much to talk about in his Forward Observer column that I can't relate it all here, but suffice it to say that he's inspired.

Barry Hilton concludes his Race for the Rhine WW2 campaign series, with a comprehensive set of campaign rules for use in conjunction with Flames of War.

Kriegspiel rides again: Richard Clarke of TooFatLardies explains the enduring appeal of Kriegsspiel, the mother of all modern wargaming.

To boldly go: our Fantasy & Sci-Fi Editor Roger Smith, just back from a bashing at the Warhammer Fantasy Grand Tourney, licks his wounds by explaining the ten things that annoy him most about the Warhammer rules.

C S Grant's Table Top Teaser this time is "Siege train", an exciting variant on the wagon train scenario that will test your abilities to the limit.

The Recce section is overflowing with goodies. We were sent so many samples that I could have filled the magazine, so I've had to hold some over until next time. Reviews include DBMM and Warlord ancients rules, the new edition of The War Game, War Torn Worlds 'green' scenery, Zvezda plastics, Italeri bunkers, Neil Thomas' Ancient & Medieval Wargaming, Baccus colonials, Magister Militum Mongols, AIM 10mm ancients, Neil Litten's book Ramillies, Angus Konstam's Salerno, Rupert Matthew's book on Crécy, Strategia e Tattica's Teutonic Knights, various publications from the Pike & Shot Society, Castaway Arts Colonials, Buck Surdu's Look Sarge, No Charts WW2 rules, and Warhammer Historical's Siege & Conquest. Phew!

And, of course, a smile with Larry Leadhead and a competition with a prize you have just got to see to believe! Flames of War fans will be beating a path to our door!

Finally, this issue sees the launch of our classified advertising section by popular demand from small traders who can't always afford larger ads.

This PDF version is priced at 50% of the original printed version, making it affordable for gamers everywhere.

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.
