In 43 AD the Roman army landed on the south coast of a small island called Britain seeking to add this latest territory to Emperor Claudius’ vast empire – an empire that already spanned much of the known world.
The Roman Invasion of Britain starter set contains:
Softback A5 Hail Caesar rulebook
Quick start guide
80 hard plastic Celtic Infantry
40 hard plastic Roman Legionaries
Hard plastic Roman Scorpion catapult & crew
1 metal Imperial Roman commander on horse
1 metal Celt chieftain on horse
Celtic and Roman waterslide shield decals
Twelve 6-sided dice
Reference sheet and casualty counters
The Roman forces, spearheaded by the legionaries in their segmented armour and large scutum shields, were highly trained, equipped and disciplined. Backed by the deadly Scorpion catapults how could these barbarians stop them?

I have not played as of yet, but have started reading the rule book which I feel for the price it should have been the large hard cover book, do not get me wrong, it is a great value for the price. The figures are easy to assemble for the experienced modeler but the only drawback is there are no assembly instructions ( just like almost every other Warlord Games models) which would make it difficult if you are new to 28 mm War gaming. The starter booklet is not the same as the rule book, they simplified it so you could play the game with what is in the box. Even though the models are great, they could have made the starter booklet match the rule book. That is what makes this an average game. (GCmini note: Thanks for the review Jeff. I would have thought they'd include the full rules, even if it was in a smaller format like they did with Bolt Action. That's a shame they did not do that.)
