1879 Miniatures British Forcebook

Watermarked PDF

It's 1879. Do you know where your army is?

The British Empire crossed through the Rabbit Hole portal into the world of the Grosvenor Land two years ago. Her Majesty's military met the Samsut earlier this year, who use arcane technology to bring back their dead as front-line troops. War ensued. The Samsut clearly held the upper hand. Although their railguns were easily matched by the Martini-Henry rifle, their skeletons and zombies could take multiple hits and keep attacking.

Now the British army has a new advantage: Magic. With the opening of the portal, long-dormant powers have returned. Officers of the Order of Britannia Victorious bring fire and lightning to the field, giving the Empire its first real taste of victory since the war began. Fresh troops have arrived, Maoris skilled in trench warfare, Sepoys accustomed to fighting in dense forests and jungles, and Zulus who fear nothing their assegais can reach.

This forcebook extends the game mechanics in the 1879 Miniatures Wargame Corebook, providing rules for magician officers and artillery counter-battery fire, and statistics blocks for multiple weights of cannon. New vehicular rules include the breaching carrier, an armored personnel vehicle whose shock troops carry the W.W. Greener assault shotgun. Auxiliary troops include the Gurkhas, Sepoys, Maori, and Zulus. New units, new rules, new ways to win!

Tally ho!

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.
