I got this for the viking ship, which while beautifully detailed has colors that are so murky that when printed it just looks like a long grey surfboard shape. I presume they're trying to portray wood weathered to grey by time at sea. Maybe it shows up better on monitors for digital games. The small boats are very useful but suffer from similar color issues. Overall a collectgion of useful craft that need some color tweaking.
Thie counters measue about 71 x 71 pixels, and when enlarged to 135 x 135 pixels, as the ones in Vassal, they become very blurry. Even at 71 x 71 pixels the counters are not that sharp. Lucky for me, I only wanted the scenarios.
Except for the cover page being a bit darker than I expected, all things considered, the quality of the scan is great, the clarity of the images are more than I could have hoped for. I’m pleased with the overall product, only wish that this and other classic mods/classic booklets were available in soft/hard cover print, and not just as a PDF.

It's been a while since I looked into a miniatures game because the rules always seemed cumbersome and complex. Call to Arms is the exact opposite. This 104 page rule book boils down combat, magic, races, terrain and everything else you need to know about in an easy to understand format that allows for gameplay to start soon after you get the book. Each section is clearly defined in the contents so you don't have to flip around trying to find a rule for a specific situation. If my state wasn't in lockdown, I'd go to my local gaming store today to look for minis to play it with today. But I guess that's what the internet is for!...
Almost perfect. The wedges are narrower than the FDG posts. Until they are improved I'll stick with the using 2 normal posts. They grip the walls much better. otherwise they print well and look as they should.
Although I bought the game, This is a great addition, as I do not have to have anything but the Data Cards and rules supplement books out to PBEM.
JD - thanks for having this option.

Fun and lots of decisions! This is a surprisingly complex game because there are three ways for the Milanese rebels to win, and so the Austrians have to use three different approaches to stop the Milanese. The map is basic but works, the pieces are fine, the rules are clear, but the main point is that it is very fun and tricky for both sides! The use of action cards for each side adds variation like dice would. Nice approach. Many meaningful decisions in this game- Definitely worth the discount price :-)...
I am enjoying these rules! I have been looking for a set of rules that will allow me to play without having a geohex game mat, and now I have just that. The rules are fun and are quick to learn and fun to play. I highly recommend these rules!
