Battlegames magazine issue 22

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.

Diane Sutherland screams "Oi! that's my apple corer!" as husband Jon gets a yearning for earthworks in his games. As usual, Diane takes control and shows you step-by-step how to look like a scenery-making pro.

Mike Siggins, at long last, comes to grips with those suprisingly controversial Black Powder rules in "Forward observer", casting a world-weary eye over the pros and cons of Priestleyesque gaming. And then, just to show that he's capable of just about anything, he's got a finger left over to wag at the Perrys too! Is nothing sacred?

Popular ancient and medieval specialist Dan Mersey has some cracking ideas for solo scenario generators which can, of course, also be used in regular games. "Play your cards right" describes his simple, but expandable system of deployment cards, featuring no less than fifteen deployment maps by your overworked Editor. Enough already!

Now, how's this: having been the subject of an extended piece by Arthur Harman last issue, author and rules writer Neil Thomas makes his Battlegames debut on his own account with "Keeping it simple", a paean to rules that are unencumbered by superfluous detail. Thought-provoking stuff!

Our house-trained Canadian gaming guru Bob Barnetson has undergone a catharsis and, in typically robust mood, has abandoned his love affair with Warmaster. "One down, 12,000 to go" partly describes the monumental 6mm re-basing project that this break-up necessitated, but it's more an explanation of just why his heart has turned cold towards the rules he played so much.

Your Editor brings you the second mega-interview that came from that weekend in Nottingham last December. "Perry, Perry good" puts Michael and Alan Perry in the hotseat, exploring their youth, their inspiration and their techniques, hoping to give the reader some insight into what has taken them to the top of the miniature scupting tree and kept them there for so long.

Charles Grant has come up with a corking tactical challenge in the Table Top Teaser. "The defence of Twin Peaks" is a worthy test of generalship for any wargames commander, both for attacker and defender. We know this is going to get an outing in clubs and homes up and down the land!

Recce has plenty to say about the latest crop of books, rules and some scenic items this time.

Then of course we have the calendar of events supplied by Tricks of the Newark Irregulars; an exciting update for our Battlegames Combat Stress Appeal; our competition has a £50 voucher from new manufacturer The Plastic Soldier Company Ltd to be won; and, to round things off, messages from your favourite advertisers.

This PDF version is priced at 50% of the original printed version, making it affordable for gamers everywhere. We thank purchasers for respecting copyright laws and supporting our small company.

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.
