SPQR: Warband Combat in the Ancient World
With a lightning-fast and easy to play system, SPQR allows you to build a complete Warband capable of scouting out enemy armies, clashing across borders, and conducting raids on farms and villages.
Units in SPQR are divided into two broad categories; heroes and minions..
Units of 5 or more Minions form the bulk of your Warband, faceless henchmen who have been sworn into your service.
Heroes are powerful individuals that will grow in stature from battle to battle, gaining new talents and becoming true legends on the ancient battlefield!
The revised rulebook contains everything you need to know to create your own Hero to lead your Warband; With 18 unique talent trees to choose from you will have enormous freedom in play style for your chosen Nation!

Order online choose your path, recruit your minions and follow your path to glory!
You can truly make your Warband your own, with Hero Talents, mercenaries for hire, and a massive breadth of playstyle across the ancient nations from mounted, ranged, and brutal melee combat!

The Hero Talent System
Create your own Legends
The SPQR Hero system is designed to take you through a series of adventures using your own Warband. As you progress from Mission, skirmish, battle or encounter to the next you gain experience and the ability to choose various talents across many skill trees that drastically change how you can play with your hero and control your Warband.
Blending skirmish and narrative gameplay into an ancient setting where heroes become legends!
Every Hero for each nation starts with a slightly different stat-line to reflect their unique skills, you then get to assign two additional skill points to your chosen stat lines and choose two talents from any trees you see fit!
You could choose to make a hard-hitting berserker of a hero, or a well-balanced fighter that rallies his troops? Will you lead from the front or provide support from behind your minions? – Create your own story or choose a pre-made profile matching one of many well known historical figures!
Warlord Games creates a HUGE range of sculpts suitable to represent your newly created hero, including those used to represent heroes that really did exist on the battlefield. – If like is you love to play “wysiwyg” then our huge range of plastic kits, transfers and jam-packed historical sprues will be perfect for the budding kit-basher, or grab one of the boxes of newly cast highly detailed Warlord Resin heros for each nationality!
The SPQR 2 player starter set comes with two special edition heroes to fight for your Gauls (Or, would work equally well as a Briton of Germanic Chieftain) and your Romans

Unit Cards and Stats
All miniatures within SPQR fall within “Hero” or “Minion” categories, as such stats are relatively similar for your rank and file men following your leaders to battle.
Each SPQR branded box comes with statistic cards making keeping track of your units far easier.
These double-sided cards list everything you need to know about their costs, equipment choices, and abilities on the table – making game-play far faster to pick up and learn when you don’t need to go back to the rule book after your first games!
That’s all there is to it!
Grab your rulebook or use historical inspiration to choose your Warband, pick up the troops you need and get building your first force!
Stay tuned for more updates from the Warlord Team following SPQR and the Death or Glory skirmish game system!
