The Children of Neptune

My latest warband for my Weird War Rome project is a departure from the authorised bands as found in Broken Legions. This is where the Song of Blades and Heroes system comes in very handy, in that I can construct groups from scratch and let my imagination run free.

The Children of Neptune are a cult established around the Mediterranean, using dark magic to summon the demons of the deep to do their bidding. In Sicily, Sextus Pompey has come to the Children of Neptune for help in his efforts against the Second Triumvirate. Agrippa will need to assign his top men to the job of stopping this cult from giving Pompey the supernatural help that might tip the scales against Octavian Caesar.

Hopefully we'll get them into a game soon.

    Will nobody save that poor maiden?

    1. The Roman warband is on the way... although, they're less interested in saving her than stopping the monsters.

  2. That's very cool, I really like it.

    1. Thanks Stuart. We'll have to see how they play out on the tabletop.
