    been watching the new twitch feed put out by warlord on Monday. so to try and answer a few questions.. apologies if I heard any of this wrong..

    its a full size A4 rulebook, think softback like 1st edition

    The roman infantry points have stayed the same, all other units have changed for balance. Expect “barbarians”, auxiliaries etc to be closer to…[Read more]

    I believe the 2nd edition is going to see some sort of reduction in dice. The shields allowing rerolls to armour rather than parrying and an overall reduction in the number of dice each model contributes.

    Infamy Infamy is very specific in its lists, so the first book is only Roman versus barbarians. It plays very different and whilst not suiting…[Read more]

    its true, short article in wargames illustrated.

    combat revisited to reduce the endless buckets of dice and I think pretty big overhaul of points

    to late for me moved on to Infamy Infamy, not impressed when rules need this much revising less than 2 years in!

    ok Warlord lets be brutally honest.. SPQR needs some love. The book quality is exceptional and I get its a light look at ancients but the rules are so full of holes. I commend the early FAQ and attempt to change things, melee change to only base contact is a very good start (although we have had…[Read more]

    so cant get my head round armour. Helmets at 2 Denarii give you +1 armour, leather for 5 Denarii (which includes a helmet pg26) gives you +1 armour. I get the cumulative effect that leather can stack but seriously, 7 denarii for a +2 armour save for minions? don’t even get me started on chainmail at 12 denarii

    anyone played about with these at…[Read more]

  • John replied to the topic Wild Charge and new melee rules in the forum SPQR 9 months ago

    Hi JmB… don’t worry I don’t think anyone quite understands it.

    What I and my freind’s have agreed is we only count bonuses for models in base contact, so 5 charging skyclad would get their base 2 melee dice and +1 melee dice for each model in contact. So 5 in contact would be 15 melee dice.

    We also agreed that you only get parry if in base…[Read more]

  • really helpful thanks Tim,

    I think like many players were in effect creating our own version 1.1, but your thoughts are really useful

  • hi guys, mainly a Hail Caesar player but using SPQR as quick filler. I know there are rules issues but wondered your takes on if were interpreting these options correctly!

    • Skyclad units get +1 Melee, usual bonus +1 for units over 10 models so hit on 2+ with re rolls from druids. Parry is next to useless against them and they still get an amour…
