Welcome to the Hurlbat Publishing edition of ‘Micro Warfare Series: Micro Ancients’

This series of games was original published by Tabletop Games in the 1970s with this title being published in 1976. Each game in the series aims to recreate the feel of tabletop wargaming with large numbers of miniatures but using printed counters and terrain so that games can be played in a small space and are very cost-effective.

In these new editions we have kept the rules and most of the illustrations unchanged but have modernised the layout and counter designs to refresh the game.

This game recreates a battle during the Punic Wars, between Carthaginian and Roman Republican armies.

The Roman army counters represent a force of two legions, with auxiliary and other friendly foreign troops, totalling approximately 22,000 men. The Carthaginian army is typical of a mercenary type army, with counters representing some 30,000 men.

Using the simple but comprehensive rules, up to six players are able to recreate a complete battle on any flat surface. The battlefield can be varied to suit any type of terrain, thus giving an extremely variable playing area.

Product was updated as suggested. Thank guys. A good quick rule set from the 70's. Hopefully we'll get the other games in the series re-published. [...]

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.
