JagdPanther Magazine #5


Take another journey with us back to 1974, when a small wargame club in Amarillo Texas (led by Steve Cole) produced an award-winning magazine filled with articles, variants, and reviews. Production values had not improved, and we still printed on that insane 14" paper. (The pages are divided in half for this 54-page PDF version.)

This issue includes several features:

  • Cover art of Zeppelins by James McNease.
  • Editorial with rambling comments on what was going in the Amarillo group and the industry at large.
  • Variants for the SPI game World War II covering things they forgot, omitted, or didn't consider worth mentioning.
  • A variant for Turning Point moving the SS divisions from another theater to that game.
  • A variant for Avalon Hill's 1914 game assuming that the US Army showed up early.
  • A list of ways to balance the Avalon Hill game Stalingrad.
  • A variant for Guadalcanal introducing the German 2nd Mountain Division and other units including Australians, the US 82nd Airborne, the German 2nd Parachute Division and 15th Panzer Division.Assorted new rules for Luftwaffe continuing the game into 1947. This included B29s, a US base in Norway, transfers via Gibraltar, the Italian Air Force, more jets (British, Russian, American), and much more.
  • World War II naval miniatures rules.
  • Suggested rules changes for Second Galactic War.
  • A way to link the games Trireme and Centurion.
  • The most confusing rules for Diplomacy.
  • American troops in Moscow Campaign.
  • A column on Napoleonic Miniatures.
  • A review of the game Spitfire.
  • The complete game Zeppelin covering the World War I aerial warfare campaign over Britain.

Yet another gaming classic from the 70's. The game variant for AH's Luftwaffe was excellent giving you all kinds of options for continuing the war to 1947 with jets and the B-36 Peacemaker. The early US intervention in AH's 1914 also had an interesting [...]

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.
