Soldier’s Companion

Selected Option:
Softcover B&W Book
PDF + Softcover B&W Book

Soldier’s Companion contains Nineteenth-century colonial miniatures rules with the Victorian Science Fiction elements of Space: 1889. While allowing for the addition of land juggernauts, combat tripods, and aerial flyers, the rules work well for a rag-tag British column fighting its way through the passes of the Northwest Frontier. Soldier’s Companion covers the wealth of period military equipment and extensively details the major armies of Earth, Mars, Venus, and Luna. This edition contains all of the material from the original Game Designers' Workshop (GDW) publication.

Missed this first time round. This supplement is worth it for the worlds military alone. [...]

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
