World at War: Back of Beyond


World at War: Back of Beyond is the Battlefield Evolution: World at War supplement covering the Interwar period armies of Central Asia!
The book includes new traits (Grenades, Weak AA) to give you the "interwar feel" and covers all the traits you need to play with the units of this book.
The following army lists are in this book:
The Army of British India
The Basmachi
The Bolsheviks
The Chinese Bandits
The Chinese Warlord Army
The Czech Legion
The Japanese
The Mad Baron's Army
The Mongolian Tribes
The Tibetans
The White Russians
Stats for the many vehicles such as Rolls-Royce Armoured Car, Lancaster 4x2 Armoured Car, Austin Armoured Car, Austin-Putilov Armoured Car, Austin-Kégresse Halftrack, Medium Mark C Tank, Vickers Medium Mk I Tank, Renault FT-17, Vickers Medium Mk II, Mk III and A1E1 Independent Tank are also included.
The "Larger than life Characters and eccentric Equipment" section introduces special characters for all the army lists to give you even more options. Beware - some of these characters are indeed larger than life, they extend the game into a pulpier setting, away from the historical one. You are getting rules to field an Aristocratic Adventurer, the Arms Dealer, the Artillery Officer, a retired Big Game Hunter, a Communist Demagogue, a European Spy, the Female Adventurer and Scholar, the Foreign Bodyguard and Mortar Supplier, German Mercenaries, the Heroic Scout, the Independent Journalist, Mongol Princess and Shaman, a Pilot Ace and even the Tibetan Lama with a Yeti!

All units in this book are designed by the same principles as the existing vehicles in the Battlefield Evolution: World at War rulebook and Battlefield Evolution: Pacific War Supplement also written by Agis Neugebauer.

This book requires the use of Battlefield Evolution: World at War, available from Mongoose Publishing.

This is possibly my favourite release from A.D. Publishing. As well as detailing 11 "armies" that you might field in the back of beyond (along with a brief history of each group), you also get stats for armoured cars and special characters. [...]

Just got mine. Beats Contemptible Little Armies hands down, as far as I'm concerned! The army lists are well laid and the special rules are very clear, unlike CLA that had me scratching my head!! I also like the fact that the army lists were created to [...]

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.
