Line of Fire 13 Magazine and Game

PDF
$39.99

Forget about the number 13 being unlucky:  be one of the lucky readers of the latest issue of Lock ‘n Load Publishing’s dynamic magazine, Line of Fire. This issue is another bountiful offering of our Charles S. Roberts Award-nominated magazine. At the vanguard of this magazine is the Nations at War series of games. Included are articles on the future of the series, on the forthcoming Stalin’s Triumph, and on strategies for the campaign in Operation Cobra, plus four new scenarios by veteran designer Matt Lohse: two on Operation Market Garden and two on Operation Goodwood.

And if all of that isn’t enough, how about a Free game! Blood on the Alma, designed by Tom Russell, with art by Gabriel Gendron, depicts the September 20th, 1854, Battle of the Alma, in Crimea, in which an Allied force of British, French and Turks met the Russians. The game includes rules, a color map, 123 beautiful 5/8” die-cut counters and a player-aid card. Its unusual mechanics and atypical sequence of play make Blood on the Alma a singular gaming experience. Russians from Blood on the Alma

But that’s not all. Also featured are articles on the French in Honneur et Patrie, on larger battles in World at War, Warparty fiction, an exclusive interview with maverick game reviewer Marco Arnaudo, a unique Heroes of the Gap battle report, and reviews of Sergeants Miniatures Game, Martian Dice and Commands & Colors: Napoleonics.

If new scenarios get you excited, then you’ve come to the right place. In addition to the four Nations at War scenarios, there are plenty more:

    * The World at War modulette Jungle Blood & Sweat, started in Line of Fire #12, concludes with three more scenarios in Southeast Asia, utilizing 33 new 5/8” die-cut counters.
    * British and Soviet Recon formations meet near Bitterfeld, the crucial town featured in World at War: Battles within Battles.
    * The Swedes attempt to strike down a Soviet push inland from the town of Nynäsham, south of Stockholm, in another aspect of Operation Garbo.
    * In two Honneur et Patrie scenarios, the Belgians launch a vital counterattack and the French and the Soviets take on each other as well as a whole new type of enemy—a rogue lunatic who’s on the lam.
    * Two hot-spots in Heroes of the Gap are illuminated: one in Bavaria (on maps from Band of Heroes); the other in Libya (on the A Day of Heroes map).
    * Also, a new Space Infantry Enemies Variant introduces a new sense of doom to your extra-terrestrial gaming.

Line of Fire 13 is filled with the usual excellence. Lavish use of graphics makes for a visual feast. [...]

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.
