SO CONVENIENT FOR HEWING: Dark Age Skirmish Rules

So Convenient for Hewing: Dark Age Skirmish Rules Skirmish system uses action cards to control an ever-changing order of play. Command chits are used to activate individual units. The action deck consists of twelve action cards, two shoot cards, two move cards, two charge cards, two rally cards, two Free Choice of Action cards, and two end-of-turn cards. Half the cards are red, and half are blue – showing which side has the initiative on a given card. A game turn consists of going through the action deck, one card at a time. Each turn, Veteran units and Senior Leaders receive two command chits, Warrior/Regular units get one command chit, and Green units do not get a command chit. Thus Green units are dependent on Senior Leaders to act. $24.00 USD

Bockler and Lowler Krieg Contains 53 mostly colored photographs of reenactor events, with individual drawings of castles and contemporary illustrations, one map, and three other illustrations. In the late 15th Century, first the Bockler, then the Lowler, suffered a variety of uprisings by knights. Bavarian Duke Albrecht IV proved to be a clever tactician and capable administrator, who was able to assert himself against rebellious knights, his hostile brothers, and the suspicious head of the Reich Emperor Frederick III. By intervening with Bohemian mercenaries, the conflict also gained an international touch. The Swabian Covenant experienced its baptism of fire. [German Text] $41.00 USD

The War of the Venetians Contains 41 photos, partly of re-enactment events, nine contemporary illustrations, one map, two other illustrations, and two double-sided colored drawings. The Venetian War of 1487 between the maritime great power of Venice and the Alpine Archduchy of Tyrol led to considerable political upheavals – especially in Tyrol. The conflict is closely linked to the partly tragic, partly bizarre biography of Archduke Siegmund of Tyrol. This book was written in close cooperation with reenactment groups from Italy, Austria and Germany. It also contains detailed illustrations of weapons, color illustrations, and some of Wolfgang Braun's excellent reconstruction drawings. [German Text] $41.00 USD

The Armies of the Schmalkaldic War In the middle of the 16th Century, the Holy Roman Empire was shaken by a series of conflicts that anticipated the sectarian conflicts of the Thirty Years' War. In 1546/47, the Schmalkaldic League rose up against Emperor Charles V. After some inconclusive campaigns, the troops of the Confederation were decisively defeated in 1547 in Mulberg, Saxony. When a little later the emperor's most important ally, Moritz of Saxony, sided with the unruly Protestant princes, a new uprising against the emperor took place in 1552, which could only be resolved by the Augsburg religious peace. Includes 26 mostly color illustrations, including contemporary illustrations and full-page drawings, and two maps. [German Text] $29.00 USD

The Ennetbirgische Campaigns Depicts the campaigns of the Swiss and Valais against Milan, as well as the conflicts between the Graubundner and the Duchy of Milan, with the conquests of the Confederates over the Alpine passes to the south. Also deals with the internal conflicts of the Swiss in connection with the Ennetbirgische Campaigns. The armies of the Confederates and their opponents are portrayed in detail in terms of composition, armament, tactics, and use. Includes contemporary illustrations, maps, and images of international re-enactment groups. [German Text] $41.00 USD

 GREECE AGAINST ROME: The Fall of the Hellenistic Kingdoms 250-31 BC

Greece Against Rome: The Fall of the Hellenistic Kingdoms 250-31 BC Towards the middle of the 3rd Century BC, the Hellenistic kingdoms (the fragments of Alexander the Great's short-lived empire) were near their peak. In terms of population, economy, and military power, each individual kingdom was vastly superior to Rome, not to mention in fields such as medicine, architecture, science, philosophy and literature. However, over the next two-and-a half centuries, Rome conquered and took over these kingdoms while adopting so much of Hellenistic culture that the resultant hybrid is known as 'Graeco-Roman.' Refreshingly, the story is largely told from the viewpoint of the Hellenistic kingdoms. $33.00 USD

Septimius Severus and the Roman Army The assassination of Emperor Commodus in 192 sparked a civil war. Septimius Severus emerged as the eventual victor and his dynasty (the Severans) ruled until 235. He fought numerous campaigns, against both internal rivals and external enemies, extending the Empire to the east (adding Mesopotamia), the south (in Africa) and the north (beyond Hadrian's Wall). The military aspects of his reign, including his reforms of the army, are the main focus of this new study. After discussing his early career and governorship of Pannonia, covers his war with Pescennius Niger, the siege of Byzantium, and the campaign in northern Mesopotamia that added it as a province. The much more difficult campaign against Clodius Albinus in Gaul is also studied in detail, as is that in North Africa. The narrative concludes with an account of the last campaign in Britain and Severus' death. The final chapters analyze Septimius' reforms of the army and assess their impact on events of the next 70 years until the accession of Diocletian. $33.00 USD

Most of the operations were conducted by American irregulars and volunteers, carefully selected, with specialized skills, and led by leaders with native intelligence. Includes naval operations, too. $25.00 USD
