These little beauties have taken us a little longer than we’d planned but we’re delighted to show off the new Praetorian Guard plastic sprues!
We expect to be releasing the boxed set next week and you’ll then be able to add the elite Emperor’s bodyguard to your forces. You can pre-order yours here!
There are two sprues types in the set. The first is the command sprue which, by happy coincidence, contains all the command elements of the unit – Centurion, Standard Bearer and Musician. The Centurion, with cloak across his arm has two arm variants – one with gladius at the ready and another with the iconic Roman salute. This boxed set gives you two options for standards – the Praetorian signum and also a vexillum which will give you even more flexibility in how you build your Roman army.
The Second sprue contains the bulk of the troops. With innovative plug-in helmet crest and trademark oval shield these soldiers will stand out nicely on the battlefield, instilling iron into the veins of your force and ice into the veins of the enemy. As with any Warlord Games plastic set you’ll find several optional extras such as empty helms, spare pila, etc.
The boxed set contains 20 multi-part, hard plastic Praetorian Guard and also a sheet of highly-detailed, full-colour shield transfers to bring your miniatures alive.
Keep your eyes peeled over the next few days for even more great release news and, if you’ve not already, sign up for the weekly Warlord Games newsletter on our homepage!
