Warlord Games Taking Pre-Orders For Age of Caesar Supplement for Hail Caesar

I mean, his name’s right there in the title of the game. Rome’s legions under the control of Gaius Julius Caesar was one of the most formidable fighting forces the world has ever seen. Sent to conquer Gaul, Caesar soon returned to the Italian peninsula and after several more victories, was able to basically conquer his home country and become Emperor. Soon, you’ll be able to bring those legions to your tabletop with the Age of Caesar book coming out for Hail Caesar.

This new book will bring you many new scenarios based on the various battles that Caesar fought during his time. You’ll get stats and details about the various fighting forces under his control, as well as those that he fought against. The book also gives you some actual history, describing the lives of not just Caesar, but of many other important Roman commanders. And, as is customary, if you pre-order direct from the website, you’ll get an exclusive mini to go with it.

Expect more Roman legion minis coming out as this book nears its release date.

    Actually, Caesar’s position was a lot more complicated than that. He didn’t “conquer his own country”, there was a civil war (and Italy was not a country at that time, Caesar was a citizen of Rome). What was occurring was a political battle where his rivals were attempting to destroy him in his absence as he had become too popular to a city always in live with its victorious general’s.

    Caesar (Julius) was also never an emperor. He could more properly be called one of the last republicans. He was killed because his fellow senators feared he would make himself king (he was popular enough) and Rome had throughout its history a complete phobia of kings, but he never expressed the desire to do so.

    The first emperor of what became the Roman empire was Octavius Caesar (later know as Augustus), Julius’ nephew.

    • Yeah, this is what I get for extremely-over-simplifying to the point of just changing things around after I’d not looked over my Roman history notes in, like, a decade. πŸ˜›

        That’s it, I am officially retracting Polar Bear’s Ph.D. in Ancient History from Princeton over this scandal. Scandalous!

        • It’s actually a BS from Kansas State. πŸ˜›

          • Davos Seaworth

            Even MORE scandalous! πŸ˜‰

          • Yes, because we all know about Kansas State’s strong ties to ancient Rome. πŸ˜€

          • crazytuco

            This whole thing just got blown wide open!

            And no one jumps on the obvious BS pun?

            More scandalous than ever.

        On the internet, there’s always someone to pedantically point out your mistakes πŸ™‚

        • Well, I mean, he’s not wrong. I did make mistakes in my history there, and I should be ashamed of it.

          And, I mean, I get people commenting if I have a tyop somewhere that I miss. So it’s only fair when someone points out something else much more egregious.

            I prefer to go with Shakespear’s version of the history.

            Caesar’s Rome had clocktowers, and Brutus’ wife stabbed herself in the leg before serving tea to guests.
