Magna Graecia Redux

I posted a few months ago that I had found again on the web the Magna Graecia Campaign Rules for running an ancient campaign in Sicily (by Rob Smith, 1997).
They are a very useful set of rules for this sort of thing whereby armies progress from node to node for which there are indiviual maps that allow a bit of tactical positioning before battle commences.

However, it has been pointed out to me that at least one of the maps (Node 01, Lilybaeum) is not working, and as I happened to have all of the maps already downloaded I thought I would put the missing one up here for anyone that might be looking for it.
I haven't checked all of the links to the other maps but I think that the rest of them are still functional (Edit - this site is now down, or soon will be, so the rules and all the maps are now here).

Thanks, I needed that! Appreciate your making this resource available again.

No worries - I've actually emailed the Portsmouth and Allied Wargames Society (no less) to see if they can find and restore the missing map.

Unfortunately, I had a response from PAWS asking me to remove the links to Magna Graecia as it was not meant to be publicly available (serves me right for trying to be a service to the wargames community!), which I have now done. However, as noted I have all the files and can send them out if anyone wants them.
