Finally the Gladiators are with us. Will they fight with or against the Romans?

The 42k and 44k SG are unlocked.

We have Epaminondas in the G&P expansion, commanding Thebes troops. A 6 scenarios Athens & Sparta campaign during the Peloponnesus War in the S&F expansion. And 3x Prodromoi within the Macedonians.

Image

On the other side we have unlocked too the Spartan General Agesilaus II, mountains for our battle field and The Rise of Macedonia campaign including 5 scenarios with Philip II, Alexander or Darius III

Image

We add a 46k SG. In this way we have 3 centuries within ONUS base game and expansions. We include the Macedonian King Philip V. He battled against several polis and against Rome after becoming Hannibal´s ally. We can put Carthaginians and Macedonians together and play the awesome Macedonian Wars campaign (214-168 BC) that will be inside the S&F expansion.

And just for backers 2x Macedonian Agrianians. An amazing elite light infantry unit. They are quite skilled in surpassing terrain obstacles. They have a powerful attack, with javelins and axes, although their defensive values are not so good.

We shouldn´t miss them!!!

Greetings friends!!

This project will be live just for some more hours. We made an effort to give you a new SG as many people is asking for it.

We want to give freedom to Spartacus, so he can command a slaves and gladiators army, to fight against the Romans and be able to get to the north of Italy and achieve his freedom!

Image

We will help him with a new mercenary unit, the Cimbri Warriors, Germanic soldiers that fought against the Romans. Many of them were captured and enslaved. Spartacus will be able to lead Gauls, Germanics, civilians and Iberians. He will have a special skill to be able to surprise Romans. The campaign will have at least 4 scenarios.

We depict the Sparabaras archers (4x). They are Persian troops with the accuracy skill. They were usually helped by spearmen so they could shoot easily to the enemy.

Crazy day today. ONUS is everywhere thanks to all of you!!!! 46k and 50k SGs unlocked, Spartacus with us....

Last SG includes:

- Greek mercenaries: 2x Thessalian Cavalry. Heavy cavalry. The riders carried lances and fought similarly to phalanxes but using a rhomboid formation. Very interesting for fighting along with the Macedonians.
- Persia: 2x Kardakes. Professional heavy infantry. The Kardakes took part in the battles of Issus and Gaugamela.
- Mercenaries: 2x Parthian Cataphracts. Heavy cavalry. Both horses and riders wore a heavy full plate. They were very slow but once engaged in combat quite difficult to defeat. They are like small elephants.

Within the Scenery & Fortresses expansion we include caltrops. They are very dangerous for horses and infantry units stepping over them. Special rules will come with them.

And finnaly we have a last minute fancy add-on: coasters (1 per faction) full color, laminated 6x6 cm for only 9$

Thank you all for your support!!!

So this Pledge Manager is meant to be for adding new addons to your pledge, to give a solution for Kickstarter payment issues and for late arrival people that couldn´t pledge during the campaign.

A future PM will be done, in which we will ask you for the delivery address, inform you about the shipping costs and ask you what you exactly pledged for during KS.

About shipping, we will do another Pledge Manager in the future informing you about the costs. It will be somee time before we ship the rewards.

Thank you again for your support and your help!!

Best regards,

Greetings friends!!

There are 90% of the backers that has sent us the KS survey duly filled in around 10 days. We sent today the stores survey. Please, if you didn´t do it yet take some minutes and send us your survey.

Furthermore we depict some of the generals' illustrations. Do you know who is who? We wait for your comments :)

Image

We are almost done with the 2nd edition rulebook (60 pages). In a few days we will send it to the printer so we can focus on finishing with the expansions.

Regarding the playmats, we have been doing some playtesting on them and it is awesome. All of you that pledged for 2 of same type can ask us to send them uncut so you can play a big battle on a 150x75cm one or cut it in two if you want.

Here you have a video of our illustrator working on the Theban general Epaminondas.

Greetings friends!!

ONUS and its expansions are almost here!!! Not later than May-June. In a few weeks you will receive an email with the final Pledge Manager so you can pay the shipping costs, add any last minute wish and balance any differences between what you paid and you ordered according to the KS survey. In some cases you paid more, in some less. But don´t worry, you will receive a personalized email.

Image

The illustrations are done, the base game has been produced and the Greeks & Persians expansion and ADD-ONs are being produced at this moment.

We are working in the Scenery & Fortresses rulebook and the campaigns book.

Image

There are some good NEWS. Or excellent news ;) The main components of the Scenery & Fortresses expansion will be done in FLAT plastic and not in cardboard. It is a bit more expensive for us but you won´t pay more. It is a thick, transparent and strong plastic that will allow us to see what we have below (playmat, table,....). During the testings we could check that the aerial view is much better for bridges, walls, rivers,...

Best regards!!
