Battlegroup Northag…

Battlegroup Northag: Fictional Setting 1983 – 10mm scale cover

Battlegroup Northag: Fictional Setting 1983 – 10mm scale For those that know and love the Battlegroup WWII system, Northag carries a lot of its DNA from the parent system, like the Battle rating system and army list building, but has been specifically designed and streamlined for the smaller scale of 10mm (1:144th) to allow for more vehicles on the table and longer gun ranges. The first Northag book contains rules, scenarios, detailed equipment data, and army lists for Soviet and British forces. Future expansions will add U.S., West and East German, and other Warsaw Pact and NATO forces. $35.00 USD

Battlegroup Northag: 10mm British Starter Army Contains: 4 x Chieftain tanks with both normal and Stillbrew turret options, 4 x FV432 APCs, 2 x Scorpion/Scimitar light tanks (both turret options included), and 35+ Infantry including Milans, Blowpipes, Carl Gustavs, sGPMG and sniper. $50.00 USD

Battlegroup Northag – 10mm Soviet Starter Army Contains: 10 x T64 tanks, 10 x BTR60 APCs, 2 x BRDM2s, and 100+ Infantry including Saggers, Spigots, Grails, AGS17s, sPKM and snipers. $110.00 USD

Rules…

Triumph: Version 1.1

Triumph: Version 1.1 Uses a variant of the standard ancients basing system. Most frequently this is 15mm figures on 40mm wide bases and 25mm figures on 60mm wide bases. However, the rules are base-width independent and work with bases of any width. Uses a lightweight point system, so there is some variation in army size. For the standard game, most armies are in the range of 12 to 16 stands. The standard game board is rectangular, 24 base-widths wide and 16 base-widths deep. This works out to a little larger than 3 x 2 feet for 15mm figures on 40mm bases. From set-up to finish, a game usually takes about one hour to play. $30.00 USD

Anna Komnene and the Alexiad: The Byzantine Princess and the First Crusade A woman of extraordinary education and intellect, Anna Komnene was the only Byzantine female historian and one of the first and foremost historians in medieval Europe. Yet few people know of her and her extraordinary story. Subsequent historians and scholars have skewed the picture of Anna as an intellectual princess and powerful author. She has been largely viewed as an angry, bitter old woman, who greedily wanted a throne that did not belong to her. Accusations of conspiracy and attempted murder were hurled at her and as punishment for her transgressions she was to live the last days of her life in exile. It was during her time in a convent, where she was not a nun, that she composed the Alexiad, the history of the First Crusade and the Byzantine Emperor, Alexios I Komnenos (1081-1118), her father. $43.00 USD

North Vietnam's 1972 Easter Offensive: Hanoi's Gamble By the end of 1971, in what Hanoi called the American War and at the height of the Cold War, the fighting had dragged on for eight years with neither side gaining a decisive advantage on the battlefield and talks in Paris to the end the war were going nowhere. While the United States was steadily drawing down its ground forces in South Vietnam, Washington was also engaging in a grand effort to build up and strengthen Saigon's armed forces to the point of self-sufficiency. Not only had the ranks of Saigon's forces swelled in recent years, but they were now being equipped and trained to use the latest American military equipment. Perhaps now was the time for Hanoi to take one last gamble before it was too late. Includes 75 black-and-white and 20 color illustrations. $23.00 USD
