Warlord Games Taking Pre-Orders For The Roman Invasion of Britain Set

Roman conquests spanned more than just the area around the Mediterranean. They took over much of continental Europe and then made eyes at the isles just across the sea. The British Isles seemed ripe for invasion. However, all the Brits living there at the time didn’t quite see it that way. There was much fierce fighting that you will soon be able to bring to your tabletop with the Roman Invasion of Britain set for Hail Caesar, available for pre-order now from Warlord Games.

Early Egyptian and Nubian Javelinmen Available From Warlord Games

Early warfare was pretty simple (relatively speaking). Take a stick. Attach something really pointy to the end. Throw at the enemy. In a way, we’re not really all that different now (just the points don’t have to be as sharp, or the sticks as big, because we make those things go really, really, really fast). But if you’d like to have your warfare at throwing distance, Warlord Games can help with some new Egyptian and Nubian Javelinmen kits.

New Normans Available To Order For Hail Caesar

I’m not sure how easy it would be to control an entire army where everyone is named Norman. I mean, you’d get into, “Hey! Norman! … No… the other Norman! … No, the other-other Norman!” … It’d soon turn into a Monty Python skit. Thankfully, the Normans weren’t actually all named Norman. I just wanted to make a terrible joke. Either way, there’s new Archers, Cavalry, and Heavy Infantry kits available to order from Warlord Games for Hail Caesar.

War Elephants Available For Hail Caesar

You know that scene in the Lord of the Rings where those massive elephant-creatures storm into battle with a whole host of troops on the back? Yeah, except for an order of scale, that sort of thing did happen. War elephants were essentially the tanks of their day. The creatures were very resilient and could carry platforms on which troops could use long pikes or bows and arrows to attack the enemy. Now they can come to your Hail Caesar tables, too.

Greek Generals – Demosthenes & Theagenes for Hail Caesar

Warlord Games expands their Hail Caesar line with the release of a pair of Greek generals: Demosthenes and Theagenes. Though the exact histories of these two seem like they might be the type that I’d put in charge of my own forces (losing battles and tending to kill one’s own people…), perhaps you’d feel they could do better when put in charge of your forces.

New Bronze Age spearmen from Warlord Games

Warlord Games has some new Bronze Age spearmen available over in their webshop.

Source

From the website:

More reinforcements for Bronze Age armies arrive today, in the form of Levy Spearmen.

Our Levy Spearmen have a light spear and either a round or oblong wicker shield. They represent Hupshu or peasant militia as levied by the City-States of Syria & Canaan, those of Mitanni, Middle Kingdom Assyria, Kassite & Middle Babylonia and the Hittite Empire.

They can also be used in Early Hebrew (Habiru) and Nomadic Desert or Dry Steppe Bedouin armies, whose warriors would have dressed similarly. These include the early Aramaeans, (Akhalamu), Midianites and Amelekites, Edomites & Moabites.

The figures can also be used as Levy or Hupshu Spearmen in Neo-Hittite & Later Syrian or Aramaean armies of the Iron Age..

New: Bronze Age Sea People Command from Warlord Games

Warlord Games expands their Hail Caesar range with the release of their new Sea People Command set.

Sea People Command

Source

From the release:

Lead your Bronze Age Sea People into battle with this new command group.

The figures can be used in all Sea People tribes’ armies, including the Peleset, Sherden, Lukka, Denyen and even Trojan armies.

It is not known whether the Sea Peoples carried standards into battle, and if they did, what they looked like. However, as many wargames rules and lists allow for them, a standard bearer is included in this pack.

The standard is based upon New Kingdom Egyptian representations of a warship (etched onto a ‘solar’ disc); which seems appropriate for a Sea People army who arrived in similar warships to invade Egypt at the end of the Late Bronze Age.

New Bronze Age proto-chariot and command from Warlord Games

Warlord Games expands their Hail Caesar line with the release of their new Bronze Age Proto-Chariot and command.

WG-EMB-42-2-horse-proto-chariot-f

Source

From the release:

More additions to our growing Early/Middle Bronze Age range from Cutting Edge Miniatures – a 2-horse Proto-chariot and Early/Middle Bronze Age Command.

Proto-chariots date from the first half of the Middle Bronze Age and some were constructed as the older style Platform Cart in shape but were now pulled by two horses. Representations in art of this type of vehicle vary in style but all show the axle in the centre of the vehicle rather than at the rear, as did the later chariots, and so were not quite as manaeovrable as the chariots proper. This model is the same as the Later Platform Cart but is pulled by 2 horses instead of the 4 Onager-Hybrids.
