    We’ll never know.
    Have to say I’m surprised… I’m willing to give it another shot. Needed some Dacians anyway:)

    I sure hope so too. Warlord has been extremely silent on this game- mostly releasing their new fancy resin kits over the last several months.
    This game had me just as excited as Bolt Action for a time, but the lack of support has been deafening. Lets hope there is something in the works.
    SPQR is a great platform and I believe it has a lot of potential.

  • You are correct. The weapons listed are what they have. But, if you wish to make it feel more realistic or balanced, feel free to give the tribesmen daggers as they would probably each be carrying a dagger for daily use in their villages. The army listing for Gaul Tribesmen only gives them the options for additional javelins and swords and some…[Read more]

  • Tim replied to the topic armour costings in the forum SPQR 3 years, 10 months ago

    Indeed it is a bit broken. However, to answer your question on page 26 of the SPQR rulebook it states under the Helmet entry that “… a helmet cannot be combined with other types of armour except a shield (it is assumed other armour includes helmets).“ This includes Leather Armour. When I started playing I had assumed you could stack helmets wit…[Read more]

  • Agreed. I hope Warlord takes note of all the discussion on this forum.

  • Hi Nigel.

    The sprues are correct. As for the pila armed sprue the lack of a pilum equipped arm is for variety purposes. I believe that the shield with pilum attached can be used to show the legionary has one he just isn’t holding it. If you like the look of all your legionaries equipped with pila then I’d buy some more sprues later on.

    As for…[Read more]

  • Hi John.

    Good questions, all of which most of us have had when we first started playing. SPQR is a really fun game with lots of potential.

    1) Skyclad do get those awesome bonuses which makes them hit really hard. However, with no armor they are vulnerable to getting killed quickly. Britains, Germanians, and Gauls all get this option for their…[Read more]

  • Hi Kenneth.

    Since the Scorpio has +1 to it’s Ranged characteristic you’ll need a 5 or 6 just to hit with 1 D6. It also has the “Smasher” rule so it cannot be parried. So, when your opponent has to roll for their armour check they have to roll a 6 (unless in the rare instance that they have +4 armour your Lethal 3 makes their armour +1). It’s Le…[Read more]

    •    They released a FAQ a while back, but no errata. It doesn’t mention Spartan cost.
      The video you’re referring to sounds like the battle was imbalanced. I can’t think of a way that those forces are equal points value. Although, the Roman player could had given all 12 Legionaries slings and pila (3+3x 12 =72 denarii) or even added a horn an…

  • Tim replied to the topic Horn/banner & Weapons in the forum SPQR 4 years, 2 months ago

    Yes, and yes.

    These are good questions. The model equipped with a standard or horn will absolutely  retain their original equipment. Also, when a unit is given the option of swords, or javelins, or shields, etc. it means that all the models get the upgrade provided you spend the denarii for them.

    Hope this helps

  • Thanks Karl.

    I appreciate the effort. I think this game has a ton of potential and any feedback about rules and questions will be well received.

    Thanks again.
