This Fall will bring the historical wargame Battalion: War of the Ancients from Osprey Games. In the game, players will take on the leadership of a historical faction as they explore the world and do battle with their opponents. Battalion: War of the Ancients is for two or four players, ages 12+, plays in 20 to 45 minutes, and will carry an MSRP of $65.00 when it lands in November.

About the game:

Assemble your armies and maintain order in this dynamic tile-based wargame, inspired by epic battles from ancient history.

Take charge of the formidable Roman legions and their allies. Command the powerful crossbowmen of the Han dynasty as they traverse unfamiliar deserts. Steer the renowned Greco-Bactrian cavalry, and fight for every oasis. Direct Hannibal’s diverse array of mercenaries, elephants, and the Sacred Band of Carthage.

To lead is to walk the tightrope. Choose a faction, consider its ranks, assemble them into units and, as they fight, carefully balance their orders and sustain your forces in the field. The unique traits of each rank tile will make your units stronger, but combine too many and your units will become unwieldy.

Battalion: War of the Ancients is an accessible two or four-player game. Command a wide range of units from four playable historical factions, each with their own strengths and weaknesses. Employ faction-specific tactics cards to outmanoeuvre your opponents. Compose your unique forces with rigour. Judge the tempo of battle with precision. Seize victory for your people!
