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.

Tiles of a wargames widow
Yes, the pun is deliberate — Diane Sutherland describes the epic task of making dozens of terrain squares for her and husband Jon's new wargames holiday centre in Crete.

Battle games forever
Another sad loss this year was Terry Wise. His good friends Stuart Asquith and Steve Dungworth have written tributes to this much-loved doyen of the hobby, together with additional comments from Tim Beresford and Richard Baber.

Run on the bank or "A bridge too far?"
Rounding off his current batch of Teasers, Charles Grant delivers a stunning game that will provide plenty of entertainment as opposing forces rush to grab bridges across a raging river.

Warhammer the 8th I am
Games Workshop released their massive update to these well-known fantasy rules this summer, so we sent Roger Smith into the field to test the latest edition and assess the changes.

Basic Impetus for Lord of the Rings
Canadian contributor Bob Barnetson submits a fascinating adaptation of the popular Italian ruleset, making use of cheap 1/72 plastics to ensure that Middle Earth gaming needn't cost a dragon's hoard. To help with the article, you can download the FREE Basic Impetus rules in English from the Dadi e Piombo website.

The new wargaming
A new contributor to Battlegames, veteran wargamer Keith Flint takes a long, hard look at the commercial tendencies in modern wargaming and asks us to think hard about how we respond to marketing messages.

Historicon 2010
We don't generally carry show reports, but Chris Scott, together with photographer Richard Ellis, tells us all about this major annual convention and assesses the differences between British and American gaming events.

Manzikert 1071
Daniel Johnson has shown his mettle previously, and now he brings us this super ancients scenario, a massive clash between Byzantium and the Seljuks. Colourful stuff!

And of course we have Mike Siggins' Forward Observer with his take on the latest products and services, including his new "On the radar" list of things to watch out for, as well as a veritable host of in-depth reviews in Recce, and our Diary of Events.

Finally, we have some really exciting news about our Combat Stress Appeal. As promised, Gripping Beast have now been able to cast up initial batches of our Combat Stress Commemorative Miniatures and the first of these are available for purchase from the Battlegames website, right now!

New feature! We're trying to persuade advertisers to book their ads including 'live' links to their websites or email addresses in the PDF version at minimal cost. So far, only one (Knuckleduster) has taken our advice, so please let your favourite companies know that you'd like to be able to just click on their web or email address in their ad!

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.
