You know how it is. It’s late at night or between ‘proper’ meals. Your tummy rumbles, so you wander to the kitchen, open the refrigerator, the light comes on and you browse the shelves, hoping that a tasty snack or beverage might just grab your attention and satisfy your appetite. Maybe it’s a pork pie, a half-forgotten chunk of cheese, or something healthier like a yoghurt or a piece of fresh fruit. If you’re thirsty, maybe a cold beer or a carton of fruit juice. Only you can know what will just ‘hit the spot’.
Over the years, I’ve produced quite a few extra bits and pieces to accompany articles in Battlegames. These, together with miscellaneous PDFs, Word documents, images and so on, are offered here in my digital fridge on an ‘as is’ basis, completely free of charge, in the hope that they might pique your interest or satisfy your snacking appetite, sending you happily back to the sofa feeling sated. All of them are my own copyright unless stated otherwise.
I shall also be adding to this collection, so check back from time to time.
Just add as many items to your cart as you like and check out as if you were buying them, but you will be charged absolutely nothing, nichts, nada, rien, niente, and you will receive the download links in an email.
Oh, and please close the fridge door after you’ve finished.
I would just say one thing. If you like what you have found in the fridge and find it useful and/or entertaining, please consider making a donation, however small — and I mean small, 50p or a dollar will do — to the Battlegames Combat Stress Appeal. Thank you.
- Arsuf 1191 Extras
In issue 17 of Battlegames, Daniel Johnson wrote a superb piece describing the Battle of Arsuf, fought during the Crusades, as a scenario for Warmaster Ancients. Daniel provided more information than I could actually fit in the magazine, so here you will find useful information conerning army lists, maps and more besides. This material is [...]
- BG33 Storytelling extra – FREE
In issue 33 of Battlegames, Phil Dutré presented a fascinating ‘matrix’ type game concept in which players take control of different units on the table, rather than just a single army, in order to achieve a narrative outcome. Here, you can download the four pages of Appendices (PDF file) that we didn’t have space for [...]
- Brooklyn 1776 Wargame Map
In issue 16 of Battlegames, I published a superb article by ‘Eclaireur’ describing a huge wargame played at South Mimms, recreating the Battle of Long Island, 27th August 1776. To accompany that article, I provided some photographs of the event, and a highly detailed map. A number of people asked me to provide a larger [...]
- Daniel Johnson’s WMA Seljuk Turk Army List
In issue 24 of Battlegames, I published an excellent article by Daniel Johnson about the Battle of Manzikert. In issue 32, his piece on the Battle of Doryleum 1079 makes reference to the Warmaster Ancients Seljuk Turk army list that he created for that battle, so rather than reproduce it in the magazine again, it [...]
- Free scenario maps
By popular demand (well, a fair number of people on Facebook asked for them), I have created JPG files of the maps I have created for the magazine over the last year and, when I get time, I’ll add more. There’s no need to add these to your basket — just click on the thumbnails [...]
- Miniature Wargames with Battlegames Contributor Guidelines
Fancy contributing to Miniature Wargames with Battlegames? Well, your first job is to read at least one copy of the magazine! Now, you might think that’s obvious, but you’d be surprised how often I’m approached ‘cold’ by people who not only have no idea of the ‘tone’ of the magazine (and it’s that tone which Miniature [...]
- Red Alert! Shields Up! Extras
In issue 18 of Battlegames, Bob Barnetson brought us a barnstorming Star Trek game that was accompanied by a great many graphics, some of which I produced, others that were provided by email@example.com. To make things easier for you, I have created a Zip file of all the required Klingon and Star Fleet vessels and [...]
