Hercules Abroad - Men of Bronze Supplement


Welcome to Hercules Abroad which is a supplement to Men of Bronze from the Osprey Wargaming Series 24 (OWG 24) written by Eric Farrington.  This is not a stand alone game.  To make use of these Lines of Battle lists you will need a copy of the Men of Bronze rules to take full advantage of these rules.  The men of Bronze rules can be purchased wherever fine books are sold, and can easily be found on the Osprey Wargaming Series website here:

These army lists came from various rules expansions that were created and published by Eric Farrington, the author of Men of Bronze on the Blood and Spectacles Blog.  The blog can be found here:

A forum user pointed out that the Late Period Egyptian list references light cavalry taking the bow option, BUT Men of Bronze/Hercules Abroad does not list this option. I will update the document shortly.

In the meantime, the Bow option is:
Bow- Shoot 2 10BW for +2 Points

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.
