New: Hoplite Casualties!

As with any battleline the front rank of a hoplite unit wasn’t the safest of places to be! To represent this, and to give a great set of casualty markers for your games of Hail Caesar are these ‘Dead ‘Uns’…

The long bladed spears and heavy slashing swords would cause horrific injuries to any un-armoured area. Due to the aspis covering you from your chin to knee, and the leg and head being protected by bronze armour, it took a skilled opponent to strike you in a vital area. Wounds are said to be most common to the neck and groin, surprisingly.

An injury to either area would be fatal. As your right arm is exposed, it would also prove a target. Hands and arms are often recorded as being chopped off in combat.
