    Greetings, Warriors!
    “ONUS! Rome vs Carthage” brought the epic battles of the Punic Wars to your tabletop. The series expands with a new standalone installment and 6 factions to take you back to the greatest splendour of the Empire, the 1st and 2nd centuries AD and the battles that made Trajan legendary.

    We have reviewed the rulebook, added feedback from the community, adapted the units to the historical period and developed new scenarios and campaigns.
    Fight epic battles in this miniature game without miniatures, but with cards and great historical realism. ROMAN empire and 6 factions!

    • The Roman legions, unbeatable and their indispensable auxiliaries.
    • Celts with chariots, Pictish warriors and agile Briton horsemen.
    • Dacians from north of the Danube who invoke Zalmoxis as they rush into battle with their fearsome falx dacica.
    • The Germans, constant threat to the empire, hunters, mounted pikemen caninefates, harassers with framea and brutal sworn nobles.
    • Parthians, lords of the East and their countless hordes, with iron-armored cataphracts, elephants, and archers.
    • Sarmatians and Bastarnae, masters of the steppes, with their brave nobles, cataphracts, mounted archers and horsemen armed with the contus sarmaticus.
    • Onus! Traianus also includes mercenaries: Nabataeans, Jewish rebels, Berserkir, Palmyrene, Batavi warriors, Gaesatai, and many more, which will support the side that pays them the most.

    We have also redesigned Onus! to include all its expansions in a single box, with the new edition of the rulebook and solitaire mode.
    Coming soon on Kickstarter, with the Ides of March, sign up here to receive the notification.

    Thanks!

    See you soon!

    These days we have been sharing on our social media a countdown showing different units of ONUS! Traianus, which starts its crowdfunding campaign on March 15th.
    We want to compile these units, as well as the messages with which we have been presenting them, in this post, starting with the legendary Scáthach:

    grafica-celtas

     

    Chariots: May the hand of our ancestors hold firm the reins of our chariots as we fight the enemy…
    Britannia’s noblemen: It is time for weapons to speak. Celtic swordsmen, charge!
    Celtic Swordmen: Raise your voices, rally your followers, we are going to war!
    Armed Peasants: The land on which we were born and which you cultivate will be stained red today with the blood of our enemies.
    Briton Readers: Hold your spear tightly, horsemen, it will soon be slippery with Roman blood.

    More news soon!

    Or she borrowed the pose from the celts 😉

    Must admit that I thought the same though.

    I see that it looks similar in the pose, the face, armor, etc, it is very different. But they could certainly be family. 🙂

    The countdown continues for the crowdfunding campaign on March 15 of ONUS! Traianus and we continue showing some of its units.
    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/dracoideas/onus-traianus/

    Today we bring you a sample of the Dacian units, commanded by Decebalus:

    grafica-dacia

    You know your enemies better than anyone else. You know what they will do to you if they capture you. Let’s fight!
    https://dracoideas.com/editorial/wp-content/uploads/2022/02/ENG-29-days.jpg

    On this day, once again, you will lead your people to victory. You are the example to follow and the best of every Dacia house. Go get them!
    https://dracoideas.com/editorial/wp-content/uploads/2022/02/ENG-28-days.jpg

    Dacia will remain free and you are her shield and her sword. For Dacia!
    https://dracoideas.com/editorial/wp-content/uploads/2022/02/ENG-27-days.jpg

    Warriors! Let us remind the Romans why they fear our Falx. Today we will sleep to the echo of their cries.
    https://dracoideas.com/editorial/wp-content/uploads/2022/02/ENG-26-days.jpg

    We will be like the lightning that strikes where no one expects. The spear that cleaves the Roman shield and scatters the legions. For Dacia!

    We have created this 3D image for the Kickstarter campaign, simulating a small battle with ONUS! Traianus.

    What do you think?

    Greetings!

    There is only 1 week left to start the campaign on Kickstarter.
    I count on you to enter the first day to help us have visibility among so many active projects.
    We will give away a dice tower as an early bird, which we have designed and it looks fantastic 🙂

    As the launch of ONUS! Trainaus on Kickstarter gets closer, we review some part-units, led by Osroes I:
    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/dracoideas/onus-traianus/

    Parthians, the Romans have proved that they are weak so far from their mothers. Let us return their corpses to their widows!

    https://dracoideas.com/editorial/wp-content/uploads/2022/03/ONUS-Osroes-18-days.jpg

    Crush the Romans, we will tear holes in their ranks and bring fear into their hearts.

    https://dracoideas.com/editorial/wp-content/uploads/2022/03/ENG-17-days.jpg

    The Roman formation will open up like wheat before the reaper when we reach their ranks. Cathaphracts, get ready, let’s go to battle!

    https://dracoideas.com/editorial/wp-content/uploads/2022/03/ENG-16-days.jpg

    May the gods guide your arrows, may your camels lead you to their rear. March!

    https://dracoideas.com/editorial/wp-content/uploads/2022/03/ENG-15-days.jpg

    Your skill with the bow is well known, the speed of your horses will be the terror of the Romans.

    https://dracoideas.com/editorial/wp-content/uploads/2022/03/ENG-14-days.jpg

    Spearmen, today your name will be remembered by the widows of the Romans who dare to defy you.

    See you soon!

    On Tuesday 15-3 we launched the campaign on Kickstarter and got funded in 20 minutes. We are impressed with the result, 700 backers in the first 24 hours! Goals are being unlocked one after another, fourteen at the moment and there is still 1 more day to get the dice tower that we give away to backers as Early Bird.
    Moreover, we have planned to give two giveaways every week, on Tuesdays and Fridays, to all backers.
    We need your arm to wield the shield that completes the wall and your voice to help us share the project.
    You can support the project by helping us to spread the word on your social networks, in order to expand the reach of our publications.

    This is the link to the campaign

    Any help to make it known will be great for us:

    I hope none of the ‘superbackers’ have complained about the lack of minis 😉

    It is quite an interesting concept to have a game that plays like a 2D wargame with cards instead of actual minis.
    Saves hours on painting tiny fighting men and many cubic meters of storage space.

    I’d be all over this, alas it comes to kickstarter at EXACTLY the wrong time for me (hopefully there might be a late backer/pre purchase scheme before the product goes into production). Problem is all the add ons/extras are also very tempting (which rises the jump in price point a bit high). I know the previous iteration got rave reviews for it’s gameplay, AND you don’t have to paint a single thing and still have a game that looks premium on the tabletop 🙂
