Warlord Games Talk About What's New With SPQR

39 Comments

You saw what was a little bit of a fuzzy box shot for this before but we’re now learning a bit more about what’s new for Warlord Games’ SPQR which takes skirmish gaming back to the Ancient time.

We’re very much looking forward to this one and it’ll be cool to see where things go beyond the Romans and Gallic warriors.

I think this would be a nice little starter in case I decide to go full into Hail Caesar.

It is always good to hear from Charlie and the new stuff coming from Warlord games.
The game sounds interesting and I might finally start painting some of my Romans.

Seems like there’s a lot of ancient era skirmish games right now. That being said, they’ll still get my money!

@robert From what I’ve read I think Clash of Spears is going to be more my thing

It sounds very Hollywood, which is probably part of the appeal to me.

Do we know who is the game designer?

SPQR means “Senatus PopulusQue Romanus”, the senate and the people of Rome. The Romans had that on top of their standards, when they went into battle. Roma Victor! But not in 9 a. d., ha ha.

I for one am looking forward to SPQR. I always wanted to play a Roman army game but I didn’t want to paint a Roman army =P

Ah! It could be more interesting for me and my group of players than Hail Caesar. Sound interesting, I’ll check this as soon as I got intel ^_^

This is one to watch. I will pick up a rule book if available. The concept of playing a campaign in one short night is appealing. I would consider a lot of scenic pieces available to interchange from game to game.

Sounds like an interesting game, It also gives you reasons to paint up a few ancients. Looking forward to it.

Quite a few Ancient Times skirmish games coming out or being in the pipeline.
But this one certainly has my interest.
I have some Spartans (both 300 style and historical) that would lvoe to pop up in this system.
