The Green and the Tan


The Green and the Tan are fast-playing and fun miniature battle rules to use with plastic army men - you know, the cheap toy soldiers you get from discount stores! Easy for new players to get involved quickly, without having to worry about detailed army lists or complex charts, but detailed enough to provide veteran players with an entertaining diversion too.

Features of The Green and the Tan include;

  • Plays in 30 minutes or less
  • Useable with any cheap figures or carboard "stand-ups"
  • No army lists, counters or book keeping required
  • Weapons include flame throwers, machine guns, mortars and bazooka
  • Rules for infantry, tanks, helicopters, minefields, and mission objectives
  • Unit activation based on squad strength / casualties

"The Green and the Tan was initially written to play with my nephews. It provided an an entertaining diversion and a great introduction to the world of miniature wargaming. I hope you have just as much fun!"

I played the game, right out of the box, so to speak, and the first thing I did was to tinker with the rules to include a major river; which was as easy as "the river is impassable" except through the bridges, which made for a very interestin [...]

This is a fine introduction to wargaming. The author explains what he means throughout the text, in terms simple enough for a youngster or newcomer to grasp without difficulty, and the game mechanisms are great. I would suggest some changes, ho [...]

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.
