Miniatures Rules…

Congo: Mungo Mah Lobeh (The Throne of Thunder)

Congo: Mungo Mah Lobeh (The Throne of Thunder) The campaign is made up of a series of adventures, linked together by an ongoing storyline and by special rules that allow players to develop and hopefully flourish as the plot unfolds. This campaign has been written specifically for two players, each one stepping into the shoes of one of the two protagonists of this perilous quest: British explorer Mary Kingsley and Uguwa, a powerful sorcerer. After facing up to the challenge of six new adventures (six new scenarios), you will face off in the finale.

Includes:

  • Congo Mary book (44 pages long)
  • Six new adventures (scenarios)
  • Two new Dangerous Terrain tables
  • Two campaign maps, for the end of the campaign
  • A reference sheet with the new characters
  • Two models from Studio Tomahawk, British explorer Mary Kingsley and Uguah, a powerful sorcerer. While stocks last. Supplied unpainted.

Books…

Civil War London: A Military History of London under Charles I and Oliver Cromwell

Civil War London: A Military History of London under Charles I and Oliver Cromwell London was the critical location throughout the English Civil Wars – a fact that has been emphasized by countless historians, with some going as far to say that by fleeing his capital in January 1642, King Charles I lost the war several months before the fighting actually started. Most studies focus on London as the political and economic powerhouse – overlooking the fact that militarily, London was just as important. $40.00 USD

SS Totenkopf at War: A History of the Division – Images of War series The SS Totenkopf (Death Head) Division even 70 years on retains its formidable and ruthless reputation as a superbly efficient yet murderous formation.

The battles at Kharkov and Kurst saw some of the fiercest fighting of that long and terrible campaign.

On Gladsmuir Shall the Battle be! The Battle of Prestonpans 1745

On Gladsmuir Shall the Battle Be! The Battle of Prestonpans 1745 This book pieces together the events of the Prestonpans campaign and focuses on the week of the battle. Uses eyewitness testimonies and close scrutiny of the evidence presented to the Board of Inquiry in 1746, to understand the buildup to the battle from an individual, as well as strategic, level. Such an understanding is revealed as critical, as the effects of morale, landscape and personality are shown to have determined the fate of the battle far more than the relative power of broadsword and bayonet. Includes 25 black-and-white illustrations and 13 maps. $50.00 USD

Napoleon and Grouchy: The Last Great Waterloo Mystery Unraveled Many have accused Grouchy of intentionally holding back his men, and not marching to join Napoleon when the sound of the gunfire at Waterloo could clearly be heard, and he has been widely blamed for Napoleon's defeat. This is a subject which is generally overlooked by British historians, who tend to concentrate on the actions of Wellington and Napoleon, and which French historians choose not to look at too closely for fear that it might reflect badly upon their hero Napoleon. Answers questions such as whether key orders did actually exist in 1815, or were they later fabrications to make Grouchy the scapegoat for Napoleon's failures? Did General Gerard really tell Grouchy to march to the sound of the guns? Why did Grouchy appear to move so slowly when speed was essential? $45.00 USD

Operation Fall Weiss: German Paratroopers in the Poland Campaign 1939 While the fledgling German paratroop operations in Belgium and the Netherlands in 1940, and on Crete in 1941, attracted worldwide attention, what is not as well known is that the use of paratroopers was planned for the invasion of Poland in 1939, in an act that began WWII. This has given rise to the myth that Adolf Hitler wanted to keep this new, and hitherto little-known, branch of the armed services secret for future projects. Includes 193 illustrations. However, on several occasions, the men of Parachute Regiment 1 were sat ready in their JU-52 transport planes, fully equipped and ready-to-go. Operation Fall Weiss describes the role of the German paratroopers in the Polish campaign, using war diaries, maps, contemporary documents, and photographs, including those from various private collections around the world. $33.00 USD
