Art of War: Awakening Miniatures Game

Watermarked PDF

Welcome to the Art of War, a new miniature wargame that invites you to help decide the fate of intelligent life and planets all across the galaxy. Within the pages that follow, we have endeavored to create new challenges and tactics to players who are looking for a change of pace, and also lower the barriers to new players joining the gaming and modeling hobby.
To people who are not familiar with miniature wargaming I ask you to envision chess, but instead of each player using matching sets of pieces the players can customize what they play with by choosing different combinations of pieces. And instead of moving on top of another piece to capture it, players roll dice to figure out which piece takes the other one out.
To those people who are old hands at wargaming, we invite you to try what we've put together. We have aimed to strike a new balance between realism and simplicity, giving you several points of decision but still allowing for speedy play. We are also bringing you a game with an interactive story line. Beginning in January 2005, each month our campaign gives you the chance to fight for the existence or annihilation of entire planets, with limited edition miniatures available as prizes.
Those of you who have collected miniatures for games that you no longer play, we say to you adapt those models to new uses. Through the AIMM system you will be able convert miniatures you already have at hand to play. You don't have to buy more stuff! The universe of Art of War is so vast that almost any model in the 24-28 mm scale can find a planet and race to represent.

Original electronic
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.
