Hell in Microcosm

Watermarked PDF

Welcome to ‘Hell in Microcosm.’ This set of rules has the battalion as the manoeuvre unit. Stiffened and supported by the specialist troops from within the division, the battalions are the cutting edge of your force. Aimed at 6mm and 2mm figures, once you get used to the rules you can contemplate deploying divisions.

When we originally used these rules, we fought battles ranging in time from the first months of the First World War to Vietnam. You can try and smash your enemy’s trench lines with artillery before launching yet another attack, or you can drop your blocking force into place with helicopters (playing the Ride of the Valkyries is purely optional).

You can have beach landings, armoured trains, and cavalry. You can bomb towns to stop the enemy advancing through them, or infiltrate your irregulars through weakly held parts of the front.

But now in this second edition I took the plunge and brought in a science fiction section as well. Whilst you can use with rules without ever turning to the Sci-Fi section; if you want you can now add mecha, giant war machines, droids, and drones to the mix. Indeed I’ve looked at transporting troops and landing them on planets who don’t necessarily want you there. So we have the systems in place to help you invade whole new worlds.

Finally there are even rules for fighting your battles directly on a 1:50,000 or similar map. We found that this gave you terrain far more intricate and interesting than anything you might produce on a wargames table.

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.
