New Starter Army Sets Available For Hail Caesar

For many hundreds of years, warfare was practiced in a certain way in the Western world. Armies of soldiers lined up shoulder-to-shoulder, with a round shield in front of them and a long spear in hand. The phalanx was the ancient world’s version of the tank, essentially. And even as military advancements came along, the idea of standing shoulder-to-shoulder stuck for quite a long time. Well, if you’re wanting to get back to war’s roots, you can with these new starter armies for the Greeks and Spartans (yes, I know that Sparta was part of Greece, but look, I don’t name these things. Plus, the various city-states really didn’t consider themselves one country (far from it, in fact), so there’s that as well) for Hail Caesar.

New Napoleonic French Imperial Guard Head of Column Available From Warlord Games

I love a parade. I mean, I was in Marching Band for many years, and so I’ve participated in quite a few. The pomp. The pageantry. The colorful uniforms.

Gangs of Rome Now Available From Warlord Games

As the Roman Empire aged, it didn’t do so gracefully. Corruption ate away at the noble core, Rome, itself.

Now you can recreate those times with Gangs of War, a new miniatures skirmish game available 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 German Pak 40 auf RSO Available For Bolt Action

The Soviets made some pretty good tanks during WWII. This was causing the Germans some issues. They had their reliable Pak 40 gun, but it wasn’t easy to move the thing around. And the original Tank Destroyers that were made had exposed crew quarters, so they could be taken out with small arms fire. The Pak 40 auf RSO compensated for that with an armored crew compartment, even though it made the whole thing rather slow. Now, you can bring it to your Bolt Action battlefield and take out those annoying T-34s.
