Line of Fire Issue #6: Full-color Scenarios, Battle Reports, Articles, a Variant, an LOS Guide, New Counters and a Map.

Line of Fire #6 contains content covering games from the Falkland Islands to FlintlockA Ring of Hills brings the squad-level intensity of the Lock ‘n Load (LnL) system to the disputed, windswept islands in the South Atlantic, detailing the brief but bloody war over the Falklands. The module’s units, new mechanics, and tactical insights are revealed in an expansive article. Also on the LnL front are an LOS Guide and a new scenario for Heroes of the Blitzkrieg and a clever variant for the popular mystery counters in the Noville scenario “Closing the Sack.”

Two new scenarios for Flintlock: Carolina Rebels, played out on a new 8.5”x11” map, present the furious skirmishes that bookended the critical Battle of Guilford Courthouse. Both scenarios pit “Light Horse” Harry Lee and his Legion against the baleful Banestre Tarleton and his Legion Horse; and these scenarios’ smaller scale make them ideal for learning the Flintlock system.

The battles in the World at War system continue in two new scenarios that utilize components from Eisenbach Gap and Blood & Bridges as well as a formidable formation of Soviet T-80s, the 13th Guards Tank, and the versatile American Task Force 1/68. Relive previously published scenarios in a pair of carnage-filled battle reports. And read about the dynamic expansion module, Battles within Battles.

    This issue of Line of Fire finishes off Arrigo Velicogna’s serial World at War (WaW) modulette Munich’s Highway, which began in Line of Fire #4, with its final two scenarios, “Operational Maneuver Group” and “Armored Acorn”. The WaW system is also expanded by three other scenarios, two of which are played out on a new 8.5”x11” urban map of the strategic port city of Bremerhaven.

Frequent scenario designer Jeff Schulte also shares his tips for designing scenarios in “The Ever-expanding World at War.”

    Product Information
    Publisher Stock #
    File Size:
    717.3 MB
    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.
