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.

At the head of the column is usually a band and certainly drummers, letting people know that the military is on the move.

Gangs of Rome Now Available From Warlord Games

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.
