Released in 1987, Army Ants were originally released in "squadrons" (sets) of three or eight figures, set on card-backed blister packs.
Various themes were developed and sold including "officers", "Royal Guards" (in the form of English Guards) and aviators (In the form of Flying Ants).
Army Ants were organized into two opposing armies, an "Orange Army" led by "General Patant" and a "Blue Army" led by "General Mc-Anther."
There were 4 sets for each army, 3 of three figures and 1 of eight figures, which also contained the general for the army.
