Warlord Games has now begun taking pre-orders for their new Ancient Skirmish Game, SPQR. The new Starter Set comes with Roman and Celtic forces, ready and raring to clash on the battlefield.

SPQR Starter Set - Warlord Games

SPQR is focused around skirmishes, sorties and small engagements on the field of battle during the Ancient times. As well as being able to play through clashes between these forces you'll also find a campaign system so your warband and its heroes will grow and develop over time.

Inside the box, you're going to get...

  • Softback rulebook
  • Easy start booklet
  • A Roman commander on foot
  • 8x Caesarian Romans with gladius
  • 8x Caesarian Romans with Pilum
  • Caesarian Romans shields decal sheet
  • A Celtic commander on foot
  • 40x Gallic Celts & Celts command
  • 12x Celtic Archers
  • Celtic Warriors shields decal sheet
  • Bases
  • D6

It's very interesting to see that the Romans have very few troops compared to the massed forces of the Celts. Every Roman soldier was a pretty tough individual but I am looking forward to seeing whether or not the Celt forces can just overrun the Romans.

As well as rules for using Romans and Celts you'll also find that you can explore forces from...

  • Imperial Rome
  • Dacia & Sarmatia
  • Iberia
  • Gaul
  • Caesar’s Legions
  • Macedonia
  • Persia
  • Thebes
  • Sparta
  • Athens

...as part of the main rulebook which expands upon your offerings.

SPQR Rulebook & Battlefield Sacrifice Miniature - Warlord Games

Also, as with all pre-orders from Warlord Games, you'll also be able to get yourself the Battlefield Sacrifice Miniature as part of either the starter set or rulebook offering.

I think this could be a good way for folks who like the Ancient World but don't want to pick up massive armies to get stuck into this period on the tabletop.
