John Candler's (1964) Miniature Wargames: Napoleonic Wargaming du Temps de Napoleon John Candler's original rules were published in a green ring binder, with 123-pages of detailed rules for a Napoleonic land and sea wargame. They covered all aspects necessary to play a detailed Napoleonic wargame on the tabletop. They were more complex than Featherstone's rules, but lacked the literary charm of the former. They are published by the History of Wargaming Project in order to preserve an example of early wargaming rules from the dawn of modern wargaming. $22.00 USD

Spanish Civil War: Bayonet and Ideology This is a set of rules specifically written for the Spanish Civil War, rather than an add-on to some other period. SCW is unique in many aspects, rather than WWII with less tigers. Hence, this specialist set of rules. The rules are replete with company build lists, victory criteria, and war and battle sketch outline.

This game uses a square grid in the same manner as PBI. This means a square is either building, partial cover or not. By using squares, it is clearer to the player what scenery the men are in, without fussing over trivial non-important detail. Thus infantry can move into the farm (proper platoon commander's order) without being told to make sure you are behind the wall and facing the enemy MG (waste of time game mechanism). $30.00 USD

Konflikt '47: Resurgence The first supplement for the Konflikt '47 Weird World War II wargames rules, this volume presents a range of new material for the game, including: New Army List: The Japanese make their presence known on the battlefields of Konflikt '47; New Units: Options for troops and technology that can be added to the armies presented in the rulebook; Special Characters: Field the best of the best, elite men and women who may single-handedly, be the crucial element between victory and defeat; New Background: The history of the world of Konflikt '47 is detailed in more depth; and New Rules: All-new means of waging war, including material previously published online. $30.00 USD

The War of Austrian Succession: 1740-1748

The War of Austrian Succession: 1740-1748 Set in motion by the disputed succession of Maria Theresa and her husband to the lands and dignities of Emperor Charles VI, this series of major conflicts (1740-48) involved far more than just the fate of the Habsurgs. Soon, Austria, Prussia, France, Britain, Spain, Bavaria, Saxony, and the Netherlands were embroiled in their different but interlocking power struggles, with profound long-term significance for Europe and beyond. The war marks the rise of Prussia to great-power status, and the opening of the struggle between France and Britain for maritime supremacy and colonial empire in North America, the Caribbean and India. This book examines the war and its consequences in their widest context. $71.00 USD

Closed following WWII, the outbreak of war in Korea recalled the plant to service, but with an entirely new purpose. Reopened as the Cleveland Tank Plant, the massive 1.7 million square foot plant was retooled in 1951 to produce the M41 Walker Bulldog and the M42 Duster. $25.00 USD
