Battlegames magazine issue 15

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.

You've done what?!: Diane Sutherland watches in horror as husband Jon converts a favourite gaming board into an Indian village. Yes, really!

Tabletop tips: Phil Olley shows us how to create eye-catching water features for wargames.

Figure mutilation therapy: Barry Hilton continues the watery theme, demonstrating how he created wading figures for his stunning Battle of the Boyne demo game.

The joy of six: A real corker, this. First of all, Peter Riley talks about what inspired him to write the Polemos American Civil War rules, then goes on to give us a cracking Gettysburg cavalry battle scenario and game report. I've included some notes for gaming the period in other scales and using different rules, and then I wrap up with an in-depth interview with Peter Berry of Baccus 6mm.

Forward observer: Siggo's in chatty mode as ever, discussing what's been inspiring him lately, including a trip to The Other Partizan in September, some Peter Pig ACW rules, friends with frighteningly spacious areas for gaming, boardgaming the Spanish Civil War, paint stripping disasters and, in response to correspondence, an explanation of his mellowing philosophy.

To boldly go: Roger dragged me along to Games Workshop's massive Games Day in Birmingham recently to see just how shell-shocked I would be, and this huge and multi-faceted event deserved an in-depth report for the benefit of those who have never been, so here it is.

Spartacists and swastikas: New contributor Gary Chapman has provided an excellent introduction to gaming the period I actually wrote my BA dissertation about, the uprisings in Germany between the Freikorps and leftist groups following the end of WWI.

Table top teaser: Charles Grant must be one of the most prolific wargames writers ever, and whilst juggling the publication of several titles (of which, see more below), he has managed to conjure up a brilliant — and hilarious — three-way teaser for our delectation! I expect to hear how you all got on with this scenarion, "Visitors with intent".

Recce: The reviews section is absolutely heaving with stuff this time round, with lots of extremely good books on offer as well as other products, not forgetting those Perry plastic French!

The Battlegames Shop brings exciting news of the latest Battlegames project: Volume 1 of the Table Top Teasers by C S Grant. As well as being a compilation of the first 12 Teasers, you'll find two extras in this 72pp, full-colour card-cover publication. Many of the early maps have been redrawn, and there's a great deal more material celebrating the tremendous fun that the Teasers have provided countless wargamers over the years.

The Battlegames Combat Stress Appeal: this issue brings you an update on the progress of the Appeal, together with a response from C S Grant, who is Vice President of the charity.

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.
