I'm guessing we'll get ship descriptions of CCHs when those ships become part of products.

Steve has already stated that he is thinking of taking the CCHs and CWLs and bundling them into a single Leaders Attack! module (or whatever its name ended up being). If that is done, I assume the counters and ship descriptions would be in that module.

This isn't a plan or anything. Just what he was (at the time) thinking to get the CWLs into the game.

Well, I was actually thinking of CWLs and DWLs in Flagships Attack, but CWLs and CCHs might make a good mix as well. The DWLs could go into the boosters. Maybe.

Cool! Then I'll patiently anticipate that product.

The LDR Ship Card Pack #1 for Federation Commander is now up on e23. To me, this is a very special pack as it is the first one specifically for the LDR. They aren't just a footnote on the Lyran cards; they have their very own with their unique weapons.

http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=ADB4817

This includes high resolution PDFs for the:

Military Police Frigate
War Destroyer
War Cruiser
Heavy Battlecruiser
Command Cruiser
Small Auxiliary Cruiser

Scenario 8CM55 Battle of the Rift

Images for counters in three sizes.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed working on it.

Please don't forget to rate it!

JagdPanther #2 should be on line within hours. It was uploaded yesterday but not released due to a typo in the stock number.

JagdPanther #2 is now online at e23.

http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=ADBJP02

Take a second journey with us to an ancient age, just one step up from carving game rules on clay tablets. The year 1973 was at the very dawn of the independent wargame publishing companies. Typesetting was done with a manual typewriter, print-on-demand meant the photocopier at the library, counters were printed on paper (and drawn by hand), page layout was done with scissors and cellophane tape, and two guys in a garage could turn out a wargame magazine that won two Origins Awards. The point was creativity, new ideas, and imagination. Production values would have to come later.

This is a PDF scan of a copy of the magazine from Steve Cole's personal archives. It includes cover art he drew by hand, ACAV (a PanzerBlitz variant for Vietnam, basically a complete major game), Fliegenkampf (close air support rules for PanzerBlitz created by Al Hall, an Air Force pilot who flew F-4s over Vietnam), variants for several games (US troops in Stalingrad and Barbarossa, Japanese and Germans in Korean War, replacements in Anzio, Laos in Year of the Rat, Americans in France 1940, Diplomacy, night raids in Luftwaffe, naval bombardment in Guadalcanal), an article on land warfare, Principles of Wargaming (article), a Dogger Bank scenario for Jutland (with a hand-drawn counter for the Blucher), an article on naval miniatures, an article on armor miniatures, a review of Up Against the Wall, an article on private armies, a filksong to the tune of "Hawaii-5-0" (the very first filksong SVC ever published), a review of S&T back issues, a tiny game (Crazy Horse) about hunting buffalo from horseback with a bow and arrow, and a one-page game called Eban Emael about the famous airborne attack in WWII.

JagdPanther Magazine was the brainchild of Stephen V. Cole, who later went on to design Star Fleet Battles. He created a magazine that, over the next three years, produced two dozen games, 15 issues, hundreds of variants, and dozens of game reviews. While the magazine steadily improved in later years, this second issue was, clearly, a work that had made no real progress from issue #1.

This classic magazine has been out of print for decades and has been sold on eBay for over $100 a copy. Now, you can have a copy (and soon, the complete set) at a very reasonable price.

Because Steve Cole (against the advice of everyone) did this magazine on 14-inch paper, this scan breaks each of the 19 original pages into two modern 11-inch pages, plus the maps and countersheets. (This is a scan of the second printing, which had eliminated some obsolete advertisements.)

JagdPanther #1 is also available:[url] http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=ADBJP01[/url]

JagdPanther #3 is now up on e23: http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=ADBJP03

Take another journey with us back to 1973, when a small wargame club in Amarillo, Texas (led by Steve Cole) produced a 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 32-page PDF version.)

ARTICLES included a puzzle, some club news, editorials, minis vs counters, armor miniatures, tactics in Diplomacy, some business experiments that never worked (command college for wargamers, PBEM games that few played and no one finished), a survey of game ideas, and some of the stupidest editorial drivel that Steve Cole ever published.

REVIEWS included Richthoffen's War, Fall of Rome, Poor Bloody Infantry, and Rifle & Saber.

VARIANTS included the British Army in Gettysburg, Black Star Blue Star, UFOs in Foxbat and Phantom, the No-Normandy Option for Anzio, Zulus for Rifle & Saber, Foxboom & Bantam, Anti-aircraft for Foxbat & Phantom, Pacific theater aircraft for Luftwaffe, Realistic Midway, Panzerblitz table of organization for the 1st Marine Division, and an Origins of Vietnam variant for Origins of WW2.

The complete game was MTB (Motor Torpedo Boat) which amounted to a PT boat variant for Panzerblitz [We haven't found the maps for that game yet but will add them when we do], and a little one-page game about British swordfish torpedo planes attacking the Italian fleet. [No copies of the game Swordfish have been found so far but they will be added when we find them.]
