Star Eagles is a miniature wargame of space fighter combat that allows you to play out the battles from your favorite science fiction books, movies, and TV shows. 

In a standard game, each player controls a squadron of 4-12 ships competing in exciting, objective-based missions in space, on moons, and in the atmosphere of planets. 

The game is easy to learn, yet tactically rich with many options that provide variety without bogging down the pace. 

Players build their squadron from a variety of small craft ranging from nimble, yet fragile, light fighters all the way up to larger gunboats and corvettes. Although Star Eagles may be used to play one-off missions, the game is intended to be played as a campaign where your pilots gain experience and you manage your squadron's resources over a series of linked scenarios.

A unique feature of Star Eagles is an open source unit building system that lets you create your own ships. You can recreate your favorite ships from any media, or entirely new designs from your imagination. If you prefer to jump right into the action, we created a whole background for you, including beautiful detailed resin 1/285 scale miniatures currently being produced on Kickstarter and set for delivery in September.

Ganesha will be producing four full sets of miniatures representing the main adversaries in our setting: the mysterious and technologically advanced S’Sekai and the A.S.E.C. AI, and the loosely aligned Confederate Stars, made up of former earth colonies and a few independent alien homeworlds.

THREE WAYS TO PLAY

STANDARD – This is the default game mode which involves 8-12 ships per player on a 4’x4’ gaming surface and is usually concluded in 60-90 minutes. Ships are controlled and maneuvered individually, but individual pilot traits and detailed ship damage are abstracted.

DETAILED – Designed for 3-4 ships per player and concludes in 45-60 minutes on a 3'x3' playing surface. Uses the standard engine, but includes more detailed ship damage by location. Pilots can be customized with unique skills.

EPIC BATTLE- This is for those who demand a truly grand spectacle on the table. Players each control 20-50 ships organized into squadrons of 3-6 ships each. Played on a 4’x6’ table, all movement and attacks are performed by groups rather than by individual ships. Dogfighting is more abstracted, but combined arms and good use of the various capabilities of different classes of ships becomes critical. Contact markers are used to create a 'Fog of war'. Scanning and recon are important to avoid ambushes. Games can still be finished in 90 minutes.

The book is available only as a PDF at the moment. A printed, full color version will be available in late September, after all Kickstarter rewards have been shipped.

The download includes ship cards (used as reference only) and combat cards (an integral part of the game). A print deck will be available here after all rewards for the kickstarter have been shipped.

The ships will also be sold as STL files for those of you who have 3D printers, so you can create as large a fleet as you want for a minimal cost.

the constar arrow is already available, unfortunately I am on holiday abroad until august 1st and I cannot create graphics for the cover images (different country, different keyboards and software) so the other stl uploads will likely have to wait

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.
