Men of Bronze is a wargame that allows you to play out Classical Greek hoplite battles on the tabletop. Players are Strategoi (generals) leading phalanxes of bronze-clad warriors in pursuit of fame, glory, and the honor of their city-states. To win such prizes, however, you must prove your mettle, display your valor, and bring the other Strategoi to their knees!

Designed to recreate small battles or larger skirmishes with 50–80 figures per side, each army will have its own unique mix of rules, advantages, backgrounds, and abilities. Strategoi must understand and appreciate the strengths and weaknesses of their forces in order to win glory on the battlefield. Of course, there's no telling what tricks a rival Strategos might have up their tunic sleeves . . .

Eric Farrington is a veteran wargamer since the late 80s. He started his path in Fantasy and Sci-fi wargaming before moving into historicals. He has a BA in History from the University of Minnesota, is a corporate efficiency expert, and owns a number of small businesses including Blood and Spectacles Publishing. Eric is married with one child and has lived in Minnesota most of his life.

"This 64-page paperback takes on a fun tone as it helps a general find ways to achieve battlefield laurels while reminding a reader that there’s no telling what a rival might have up the sleeves of his or her tunic." -Toy Soldier & Model Figure
