Warlord Games - SPQR Macedonia Heroes
To lead your force, you'll need a suitably capable hero. As well as a generic hero on foot that you can develop in a campaign however you like, this set includes three renowned heroes of legend. These heroes are a costly investment but are extremely potent forces on the tabletop. They can be called upon in the same way as mercenaries in campaigns. Alternatively, they are ideally suited for larger standalone games.
Hephaestion: One of Alexander’s closest friends and allies, Hephaestion fought the Thracians during Alexander’s regency of Macedonia and remained close to him thereafter. An exceptionally skilled and inventive man, Hephaestion rose through the ranks not because of his closeness to Alexander but by his own merit. He was often given diﬃcult tasks, both on the battleﬁeld and oﬀ, and was rarely found short.
Phillip II: King of Macedonia: it was Philip II who was chieﬂy responsible for conquering and binding together the classical Greek city-states, galvanising an empire that would lead to the truly legendary Alexander, his son. His plans to invade the Persian empire would be cut short by his assassination, but Alexander would go on to continue the legacy of Philip II.
The Young Alexander: Even at an early age, Alexander showed great promise. After being tutored by Aristotle, Alexander was made regent of Macedonia when sixteen, during which he drove oﬀ a Thracian revolt and colonised their land. At eighteen, he was leading part of his father’s army and responsible for breaking the Theban line, the turning point at the Battle of Chaeronea. These, it turned out, would become the least of his accomplishments.
