The Many Places—and Monstrous Heads—of Weird Wars Rome

Weird Wars Rome in the Pinnacle Web StoreWeird Wars Rome continues to expand with new places to visit and more things you may never want to run into!

The Weird Wars Rome map series brings you four new 24 x 30 full-color PDFs, ready to be printed with or without grids, scaled to fit your 28 mm miniatures. For even more versatility, the buildings all have versions with and without roofs to help you bring the action inside or maintain the mystery as you choose!

The Roman Fort brings you a stronghold of the Legions that could be anywhere within the Empire. Village 1 and Village 2 could be any rural settlement from Italia to distant Britannia, and they can be combined to provide a larger settlement. Finally, go deep into the Celtic or Germanic wilds for the Standing Stones, a representation of the mysterious menhirs of superstitious barbarians!

Weird Wars Rome Creature Feature: The Hydra takes you straight to monsters that have rivaled Hercules himself—the dread hydras that lurk in unlucky swamps, rivers, and lakes. You’ll find statistics for several varieties of the multi-headed beasts—including the fearsome gargantuan Lernaen hydra—Figure Flats to represent the terror on your tabletop, and five Savage Tales to bring the legends to hungry, horrifying life!

In one week alone, you have something to run from as well as somewhere to hide. Perhaps with the blessings of Fortuna, that will work out well for your Legionaries…

Travel to the Boundaries of Weird Wars Rome and Meet Her Many People!

Weird Wars Rome in the Pinnacle Web StoreWeird Wars Rome continues to expand with more support materials to flesh out an empire to the last man and the furthest corners!

Meet those who would stand with and against the glory of the Rome! Weird Wars Rome: Heroes of Rome is a set of Figure Flats that brings you dozens of legionaries, auxilia, and characters who live to defend the honor of an empire. Weird Wars Rome: Enemies of Rome supplies a wretched lot who would watch true civilization burn—Britons, druids, Germans, Dacians, Greeks, Nubians, and the like. Both sets of Figure Flats include a mix of flat figures, such as cavalry or vehicles designed to allow other figures to go on top, and stand-up figures that can be assembled in several ways.

After meeting both friend and foe, let Weird Wars Rome: The Half-Set Sun take you to the far-flung corners of Aegyptus, a land of mystery and antiquity, ancient gods and goddesses, mysterious temples and tombs, and extreme environments. Can you and the century under your command retake lost territory from the Nubians that have flooded in as the Nile has finally receded? Will you find the cause behind such an inconceivable violation of Rome’s sovereign border?

The rise of the Empire has not yet ended. Watch here for further news of the growth of its glory!

Witness the Expansion of the (Weird Wars) Roman Empire!

Weird Wars Rome in the Pinnacle Web StoreYour happy day is here, new subjects! Your desperate dreams that the glory of the Empire might find you in the uncivilized wilderness* are coming true! On this day, many great things are made available to you—four new releases in the Weird Wars Rome section of the Pinnacle Web Store—with more to come soon!

Weird Wars Rome: Archetypes is a twin set of Legionary Archetypes for your Weird Wars Rome game. One set is heroic, while the other simply isn’t! Not only does this give you a wider range of choices, but it also highlights very different characters from a small pool of statistics.

Weird Wars Rome: Res Romana gives you a quick immersion in the class and religion of ancient Roman society, as well as optional Auguries rules (and their effects on Mass Battles).

The Weird Wars Rome Creature Feature: The Cyclops brings you eye to massive eye with these monocular giants of the ancient world. Get statistics for both the savage cyclops and cyclopean titan, their magical artifacts, figure flats, and five Savage Tales!

Weird Wars Rome: Wellspring brings you to Britannia in 166 AD, where the painted barbarians attack by day only to blend into the underbrush, while something far less natural attacks by night, blending into the darkness. Make a stand at Hadrian’s Wall and defend the Empire from the foul sight, smell, and possibly magic of the Picts.
