Battlegames magazine issue 16

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.

A wargamer's Athens. Entertaining as ever, Diane Sutherland gives us a wonderful wargamers' travelogue, pinpointing all the wargames and modelling shops in the Greek capital!

Long Island, 27th August 1776. Well-known AWI rules writer 'Eclaireur' has written up the scenario and game I attended: I've packed the piece with pretty pictures and a monster map, all of which have been uploaded to the Battlegames website, which you can view for free.

Forward Observer: Siggo in good form, looking at all sorts of stuff, including (inevitably!) the ever-expanding ranges of 28mm plastics, and awarding gongs for the best of 2008 as well as succumbing to visual aids.

Tally ho! New writer Tim Beresford gives a great introduction to aerial wargaming, via Biggles, Duxford and Wings of War to Bag the Hun and Algernon Pulls It Off from the TooFatLardies. Packed full of useful details for the newcomer to this kind of gaming, this is the story of one man's journey into the blue.

This month's Table Top Teaser is rated as "fiendish" by CSG himself! Confrontation on the islands, or "Burned Tapas" as he subtitles it, provides a real challenge for the most seasoned wargamer. Take a deep breath and plunge in!

Follow the yellow brick road: another newcomer to the Battlegames stable, this time Kerry Thomas from New Zealand, gives us a step-by-step lesson in building rubbery roads for our wargames. Jolly useful and highly effective!

Roger Smith uses his "To boldly go..." column to discuss the creation of a cleverly-phased sci-fi campaign, using different gaming scales and systems, with a promise of follow-up reports in future editions.

Recce is absolutely crammed with stuff and I still had to leave lots out which will appear next time or on the website. A pile of books, miniatures, scenic materials and rules come under scrutiny, including recent Field of Glory releases, Warmaster Medieval and the brand new Trafalgar age of sail book from Warhammer Historical.

The Battlegames Combat Stress Appeal update reveals that we've now raised more than double our initial target — and I've decided to extend the Appeal for another year with a target of £5,000.

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.
