Hail Caesar


As usual, Warlord Games isn't good for just one release, or two, every week. They've got a whole bunch, and for a bunch of different games. There's some of the new Bolt Action: Korea line. There's new Konflikt '47 if you want some Weird War II. There's Cruel Seas if you want maritime non-Weird War II. And they round things off with Ancients in Hail Caesar.

Definitely a couple of different eras on display here today from Warlord Games. There's some new Cruel Seas figures, letting you up-gun your fleets a bit. Then there's some Hail Caesar figures, the Achaeans, for whom, slings and javelins were pretty far ahead in the technology department, along with the early Libyan chariot figure. Let's take a closer look.

Three eras of warfare are on display this week from Warlord Games. There's a pair of armored carriers (ok, it's really the same, but one's got a tarp over it) for Bolt Action. There's some new Vikings for Hail Caesar. But arguably the big one is a new Black Powder supplment available to pre-order called Dark and Bloody Ground. Let's take a look at them all.

There's just a bit of everything going on from Warlord Games today. There's new pre-orders for Strontium Dog. There's new Blood Red Skies squadrons for you to pick up. Keeping with the WWII theme, there's some Cruel Seas. More WWII, but Weird War II, there's new German heads for Konflikt '47. And there's even new Hail Caesar sets. Seriously, like I said, it's a bit of everything.

There's three eras of releases available to order from Warlord Games this week. There's a new Age of Bronze book for Hail Caesar. For Black Powder, it's a whole host of new heads to choose from. Bolt Action gets the biggest group of releases this week with more Afrika Corps and 8th Army sets. Let's take a look.

Warlord Games has quite a lot of new releases that they've posted up on their website. If you're looking for some new Hail Caesar, Bolt Action, or Cruel Seas (of which there's a whole bunch this time around), then you'll want to check out all the new kits.

Kinda two ends of the spectrum for this week's Warlord Games releases. On the one side, we've got some new Beyond the Gates of Antares releases, including the new Boromite Rock Brood, which I think are just insanely cute. On the other side, we've got new Hail Caesar releases which include new Norman and Viking leadership packs.

Warlord Games takes us back to the mythical time of King Arthur with another batch of releases for Hail Caesar. These new sets help you fill out your forces, with various unarmoured Saxons, as well as Royal Anglican Huscarls. So whether you want just your common soldier, or some with well-main chain and better weapons, they've got you covered.

Warlord Games is coming out with a new supplement for Hail Caesar. It's called Shield Wall and it takes us to the northern climes, where Vikings and Saxons fought over resources, engaged in bloody battles. Warlord has put together several starter bundles for both Vikings and Saxons, so you can get everything for a new force all in one go. Pre-orders are being taken now.

A couple of different time periods on display here in Hail Caesar today. Starting off, there's a new supplement book, Shield Wall, which covers the Dark Ages. As with all Warlord Games books, if you order direct from them, you get an exclusive figure. They've also got a huge set where you can get the book, a couple starter armies, and a bunch of accessories in one go. Then, they hit the Wayback Machine to the land of Greece with the Theban Sacred Band (for if you think that all the gear the Vikings are wearing into battle is just too much).

Warlord Games has a whole slew of new releases for Hail Caesar over in their webshop. They've got new minis, as well as whole new sets of accessories for you to check out.
Also, please feel free to comment with all your favorite Monty Python and the Holy Grail jokes below. We know you want to.

Warlord Games tends to run the whole gamut of times for their games. Hail Caesar is their game that spans the most. Here, you've got armies as "modern" as Ancient Rome, but it goes all the way back into almost pre-history. In this case, we're setting the Wayback Machine for the Bronze Age, with new Achaean archers as well as Libyan and Nubian melee warriors.

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.

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 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.

There's quite a lot of you out there with Saxon blood in your veins. Now, there can be quite a lot of you with Saxon minis out on your gaming tabletop (and, depending on how careful with your craft knife while cleaning and assembling the figures, you might have your Saxon blood out there as well..). Warlord Games has released some new Saxon Huscarls, as well as various new Saxon Leader sets. Ah yes, back when you could name your kid Leofric and nobody would bat an eyelash.

Warlord Games has a trio of new Saxon units that you can order over in their webshop. One's a set of Huscarls with Dane axes. The other two are Ceorls. So if you want axes to chop your opponents up or shortspears to stab them with, you've got your options open to add to your Hail Caesar warbands.

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.

Been reading a lot of Scandinavia and the World lately, so I've had Vikings on the mind a lot recently. Well, they've been on the minds of the guys at Warlord Games, too. They've got several new sets available over in their webshop, including Hirdmen as well as Warlords (Huh... warlords from Warlord Games... Seems appropriate).

Technology has made it so we don't have to carry around slices of trees with us wherever we go. Most of us have some form of computer in our pockets most of the day. Then there's those with tablets (the computers, not, like pills). Well, Warlord Games is letting you use those devices to read some of their books. They've got PDF versions of some of their most popular titles now available.

Black Friday and Cyber Monday are long gone, but that doesn't mean that all the sales are done for until the After Christmas ones being. No, there's still deals to be had, especially from Warlord Games.

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.
Discuss
The Hail Caesar line is getting quite a bolster with several new releases available over in the Warlord Games webshop. Spanish, Roman, German, and Numidian forces all get new figures to add to their armies.

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.

Warlord's combining together a couple previews for us in this post. Though the two previews are for different games (Bolt Action and Hail Caesar), seeing the two together is now making me go, "Hmm... what if you did have war elephants in a WWII game?"
