Too Fat Lardies and Reisswitz Press have come together to release a new set of rules for playing out absolutely MASSIVE Ancient battles on the tabletop. To do that, you have the rules of course and the chance to play with very, very tiny miniatures!

Strength & Honour - Too Fat Lardies

Strength & Honour // Too Fat Lardies

Strength & Honour uses 2mm miniatures although you can go up as far as 6mm, 10mm or 15mm if you are looking to use an existing collection. You can even go all the way up to 28mm if you want to but you'd need a football pitch if you wanted to set up your battles! The smaller scale has been chosen so that you can really get the feel of a massive battle where you command the entire army.

The mechanics of the game are quick and easy to dive into and allows you to recreate the battles from the start of the Marian Reforms in Rome during 105BC. This goes all the way through to 200AD and focuses in on the time when the Romans had proper professional armies.

You can check out the scale of your games and more about the rules here thanks to the Lard TV video...

Strength & Honour: An Introduction - Part One // Too Fat Lardies

The rules are then supplemented by twenty army lists that cover the Ancient world of the time. You'll be able to charge into battle as the warbands of Britannia and Germania or the colourful forces of North Africa and further into the Middle East. Ten scenarios are then latched onto that allowing you to play out loads of different challenges.

Printable Armies To Get You Started

One of the benefits of Strength & Honour is that it travels absurdly well and you can play out massive battles without taking up entire rooms of your house. To aid in this, the folks behind the game have also provided printable 2mm armies so that you can dive in and get playing without having to do any painting.

I think this is a bloomin' awesome idea and a solid way to represent the grandeur of the Ancient world at war. 28mm is good for showing off the individual heroics of your warriors and commanders but I think seeing the massed ranks of whole legions surging forward in the style you see above is something special.

The rules for Strength & Honour are available both physically and digitally so you have a few options to dive in.

Are you going to be giving this a go?
