Colonial Battlefleet: Man vs. Machine


In the far off reaches of space, the lost colonies of Man fight a desperate war for survival against an implacable and ruthless cyborg enemy.  Do you have what it takes to command a Colonial Battlecarrier, or will you turn tail and run?

Take your carrier battles to the next level with Colonial Battlefleet: Man vs. Machine, the first expansion of the top-selling Colonial Battlefleet core rules system.  Man vs. Machine tailors the core rules specifically to a style of combat where swarms of fighters engage in deadly duels to the death while heavily armed and armored Colonial battlecarriers attempt to close with more numerous, but lightly armored Cyborg carriers.  New features you will find in Man vs. Machine include:


  • 9 fighter profiles
  • New fighter abilities like microjump, boarding, and computer-infiltration attacks
  • A new fighter type - the gunship
  • 2 new starship roles - the Battlecarrier, and the Raider
  • New FTL system - the Jump Engine (no warp point needed!)
  • Expanded rules for boarding actions
  • 76 starship data cards for the Colonial and Cyborg fleets, showing the ships available during the first Cyborg war, as well as the current conflict.  Civilian ships are also included
  • 6 new scenarios covering key battles during the war

The fate of the human race is in your hands, commander.  Stop fleeing the Cyborgs, and start kicking their @#$!!

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.
