Gangs of Rome
« on: October 08, 2017, 12:24:50 PM »
Just wondering has anyone else seen this announcement from Footsore Miniatures?

“A prisoner of war is a man who tries to kill you and fails, and then asks you not to kill him.”

Yep, following that on FB. Have had the figures for years, just need a set of rules to play. Apparently Sarissa are doing suitable buildings, hopefully they will complement those of Warbases.
Cheers,

Only following it for the figures.

Will get a chance to make some decent Roman urban buildings for it (always had a hankering to do that).

Completely confused now. I was under the impression that this would be a new range of figures? Never seen that - beautiful- Roman civilian/gladiator before, except recently on FaceBook.
Or did you mean you already have suitable figures for such a game?

Following this in the sense that it looks like an alternative take on Song of Shadows and Dust (Ganesha Games). I'm intrigued to see how they have handled the theme.

They are a new range of miniatures and accompanying rules - I assume Poiter50 means he has had his own suitable figures for years.

There is more information on FB relating to the rules. It sounds quite different and intriguing. Each figure you buy comes with a unique, yes unique, stat card and it uses coins, which you get with the figure as well, to represent other options like a throwing blade or gladiator buddy.

All in all it looks and sounds really cool.

I'm afraid that's put me off a bit.

James, I admit it does seem like a collectable "bare" lead miniatures game James, and I have my reservations too, but I don't think it will work exactly that way.

Regardless Footsore have said that they will be just 'normal' 28mm miniatures which I suppose we can do with whatever we like.

Correct, I have been collecting suitable figures for Ancient Rome Gangs for many years. I think I have 6-8 gangs each of 12-16 figures plus other Civilians. IIRC a couple of my gangs are Vigiles to attempt restoration of order.

Cool. Are they somewhere we can see them?

From what I have heard the figure count for GoR is fairly low - like 5 or so minis per gang.

Interesting. The theme is appealing to me, and the mechanics of the game sound intriguing. That said, while I can live with the coins, the individual stat cards are a bit off-putting, in particular if this restricts the characters that can be created. I'll keep an eye on this even if a new project is the last thing I need.

Not sure how I post here. I have just posted one to the FS FB page.
