Wars of the Republic- Hitting Pre-Order

I am starting to see the Osprey Wargames Series book- Wars of the Republic is starting to hit the pre-order circuit at fine retailers....

Looking forward to it. Hopefully we will be able to purchase the book at a show rather than online...

Oh yeah, here is the blurb on the page.....


Quote
From the First Samnite War to the conquest of Gaul, from the defeat at Lake Trasimene to the victory of Alesia, Wars of the Republic features all the rules required to wargame this period with army lists that reflect the changing nature of the Roman military, as well as those of their opponents be it Gaul, Carthaginian, Spaniard or Greek. Wars of the Republic allows you to campaign with the legions or stand firm against Roman expansion and fight throughout the Ancient World.

Interesting question. 

The rules are scale and base agnostic as it is a unit vs. Unit game.  Typically there are 5-8 units per side. 

However, this book also has some expanded rules for Army "wings" so you could have three wings each with 5-8 units per side if you wish.  This allows it to be multi-player or just for bigger battles too. 

I hope that helps.
