I stumbled across Temple of the West when I first saw their preview sculpts for some Clash of Spears figures for the Rise of Eagles supplement, a game I adore, sculpted by Stavros Zouliatis an amazingly talented fellow who was also responsible for the original Kickstarter figures. Happily, these are now up for pre-order, on both sides of the Atlantic, to fulfil all of my Spear Clashing desires.

Dacian Temple of the West

Dacian Command // Temple of the West

The Dacians were a mighty force for the Romans to fight and they repelled the Romans many times with their unique mountain fighting techniques. The group contains three champions and a standard-bearer and a musician. As you'd expect the Dacian Falx features heavily along with their distinctive carnyx and draco.

Germanic Temple of the West

Germanic Command // Temple of the West

The Germanic Tribes were fierce warriors that protected their lands and culture with all that they had. These miniatures depict examples of Late Germanic Tribesman. After many clashes with the Romans, the Germans started to gain quite the armoury of Roman armour, weapons, and helmets.

Spartacus Revolt Temple of the West

Spartacus Revolt // Temple of the West

The name Spartacus brings up young images of Kirk Douglas in our minds, but in reality, he was indeed the leader of a slave revolt in antiquity, and in the events of the Third Servile War.

The miniatures are beautifully realised and cast in metal. The units are supplied with plastic cards with the stat lines on them for playing Clash of Spears and if you pre-order all three packs before April 29th you can get a healthy discount. You can get them from Temple of the West or Northstar if you're in the UK.

As I've already said I love Stavros' sculpting style and these have a ton of character and detail in them to lead your ancient forces. Size-wise they will match with the Victrix plastics so they're a great way of adding some leaders to your force, and in the case of the gladiators, it's a fantastic set of figures that will work for a host of games even if you don't plan on playing out the slave revolts in Rome.

Which one of you is Spartacus?
