JagdPanther Magazine #6


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 PDF version.) Cover art by James McNease (aka "The Wazoo").

This issue includes several features:

  • The usual editorials, news, and some flamewar stuff.
  • Chess as a wargame.
  • A review of a game we published (Rigelian Wars). Turns out, we could not spell Rigellian.
  • The World War III super-variant. This was a series of extension maps for an SPI NATO game adding Austria, Denmark, Berlin, Northern Norway, the Balkans, and Taiwan. Rules were included to play the game simultaneously with other games covering the Middle East and China.
  • There was a huge section of Q&A about military history, terms, tactics, and equipment.
  • Other articles/variants included Bismarck, Diplomacy, Heavy Cruiser, Kriegsmarine, and others.

Quality varies from page to page, as this is a scan of a 39-year-old copy that wasn't printed very well (from typewritten plates). Some pages are difficult to read but are the best we can do and you can, with patience, figure them out.

Is there ever going to be a print and play version of Rigelian Wars?

Currently, there are no plans to do that.

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.
