Rules…

Altar of Freedom

Altar of Freedom: Grand Tactical Rules Army-level rules for American Civil War designed for 6mm/10mm miniatures, with an available conversion to 15mm. Designed for historical scenarios like Antietam or Chickamauga, not for points-driven tournament matches. As corps or army general, your challenge will be coordinating divisions to be in the right place at the right time and wrestling with the outsized personalities of your sub-commanders. $26.00 USD

Age of Hannibal

Age of Hannibal Game large battles of antiquity in a single evening on limited table space and with flexible basing. Focus on the critical nature of pre-battle strategy, when commanders sought the best possible ground for their armies. An innovative terrain card system allows players to create unique battlefields, while also incorporating elements of scouting, flank marches, and possible ambushes. Includes a full campaign system for map-based play, plus a chapter on conducting sieges such as Carthage or Syracuse. $26.00 USD

Feudal Patrol Bundle: Skirmish Gaming in the Ancient, Medieval and Fantasy Periods The bundle includes rules and card decks. Pre-order bonus: Printed reference cards – one artillery card, six infantry cards, and three cavalry cards. Designed for solo-, two-player, and team-play. The solo option uses the concept of posture to determine an opponent's reactions, depending on relative casualties, successes and morale. Any single-based miniatures, in any scale, can be used. A typical game uses 20 to 50 figures per side, and can be played in two to three hours. Command friction is provided by a double-random activation system that provides fog of war, drama, and unpredictability to games. Feudal Patrol uses a streamlined, intuitive card-based combat resolution mechanism, which eliminates the need for look-up tables and cross-referencing. $50.00 USD

Wellington and the British Army's Indian Campaigns: 1798-1805 Book covers the 1798-1805 campaigns of Arthur Wellesley – later the Duke of Wellington – and General Lake in the Deccan and Hindustan. While it fully acknowledges Wellington's vital role, it also addresses the nature of the warring armies, the significance of the campaigns of Lake in North India, and leaves the reader with an understanding of the human experience of war in the region. For this was a brutal conflict in which British armies clashed with the formidable forces of the Sultan of Mysore and the Maratha princes. There were dramatic pitched battles at Assaye, Argaum, Delhi and Laswari, and epic sieges at Seringapatam, Gawilghur and Bhurtpore. The British success was not universal. $43.00 USD

Military History of Late Rome: 425-457

Military History of Late Rome: 425-457 Analysis of how the Romans coped with the challenge posed by masses of Huns after the Germanic tribes had gained a permanent foothold in the territories of West Rome. Reassesses the strategy and tactics of the period, and includes 32 color and black-and-white maps and battle diagrams. Shows how cooperation between Aetius, the West Roman Master of Soldiers, East Roman Emperor Marcian saved Western civilization from the barbarian nightmare posed by the Huns of Attila. Includes a fresh appraisal of 451 Battle of Catalaunian Fields, offers new insights into the mechanics of the fighting, and shows that it was a true battle of nations. Had Aetius and his allies lost the battle and had Marcian not cooperated with Aetius in 451 and 452, we would not have seen the rise of the West and the rise of scientific thinking. $40.00 USD

Sherman: The M4 Tank in World War II The Medium Tank, M4, better known to the British as the Sherman, was the most widely used medium tank by the United States and Western Allies in World War II. Reliable, relatively cheap to produce, and easy to maintain, thousands were distributed to the British Commonwealth and the Soviet Union by the Lend-Lease program. It first saw combat in North Africa, where it outclassed lighter German and Italian tanks. By 1944, the M4 was outgunned by the German heavy tanks, but it still contributed to the fight when deployed in numbers and supported by artillery and fighter-bombers. Includes 360 photographs, 110 diagrams. $50.00 USD
