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.

Chocolate teapots: Diane Sutherland reveals the unusual things her husband John does with decorative china.

Figure piracy - scourge of the hobby? Bob Barnetson investigates the thorny subject of recasting miniatures.

I like your style: Barry Hilton gives us a masterclass in comparative painting techniques. No less than seven different methods are described in detail, and he goes on to demonstrate top tips for basing too!

Forward Observer: Siggo gets stuck in to the TooFatLardies Sharp Practice rules with an in-depth review.

To boldly go: Roger Smith is impressed with the new 4th Edition Advanced Dungeons & Dragons, and gets really excited about Games Workshop's new Warhammer Fantasy Dark Elves army book.

Tabletop tips: the first in an occasional series, Phil Olley shows us how to set our gaming alight with tabletop fire effects.

Seven years in Silesia: Angus Konstam describes what inspired him to write his Kriegskunst mid-18th century rules and the challenges he faced, then rounds off with an exciting scenario for us to try.

The well of Tarka: Dan Mersey brings us a clever system for playing an 'automated' Sudan game and notes for adapting the Warhammer Historical Legends of the Old West for use in colonial wargames.

Special FREE bonus! Now you can download my own Zulu Wars participation game as a Battlegames Mini Special right here on Wargame Vault, with free rules, that was directly inspired by Dan's system.

Table top teaser: "reconnaissance in force". Phil Olley had a hand in the playtest of this brilliant scenario, including producing some wonderful shots of Charles Grant's Spencer Smiths in action — yes, the ones that were used in The War Game!

Recce: plenty of book, rule, figure and computer game reviews. Steve Gill even read a book by God! (Sort of...)

War and Preece: our dear Johnny Preece delves into a particular battle in Burma where a particular Brigadier was serving...

The Battlegames Combat Stress Appeal: announced already, and I note with pride that a a handful of readers have already made extremely generous donations to get us on our way. Please help us to achieve our target. This issue tells you all about the appeal with a moving introduction from Julian Evans.

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.
