Only a few months earlier Lucius Cornelius Macro had been an optio
His former comrades in the ranks were still inclined to treat him as an equal
It was hard to register a respectful attitude to one who so recently had been seen emptying his guts of a skinful of cheap wine
Want to know more about the characters in "Under the Eagle "?

Hello!
All Stretch Goals have now been unlocked, including the Cato card without armor.
Our favorite Optio will participate in some of the scenarios without being equipped for battle, but will always be a good asset to any unit.



He had to look up to examine the lad who was nearly a foot taller man himself. Under the brim of the travelling cloak, a mop of black hair had been flattened into straggling trails by the rain. Below a flat brow, a pair of piercing brown eyes in deep sockets glinted either side of a long thin nose. The boy's mouth was clamped shut, but the bottom lip trembled slightly. Although the clothes were soaked and splattered with mud from the long journey from the depot at Aventicum, they were of a surprisingly good quality. As for the writing set, the books and this letter for the legate… Well, this recruit was something else. Clearly no stranger to money but, if so, then why the hell join the army?

'Cato, wasn't it?'

'Yes.'

'I'm also called sir.' Macro smiled.

Are those books the same thing the Channing Tatu, movie was based on?

The truth is that I do not know. I know they want to make a movie and a series...

This British writer, Simon Scarrow, has more than 20 Águila novels and they are best sellers in many countries and translated into many languages. I started reading him 20 years ago...

We would like to give a few notes on the scenarios included in the expansion, as they have all been unlocked!

Most of them, except for the prologue, feature Macro and/or Cato as characters, as well as other generals using the rules of the base game.

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/dracoideas/under-the-eagle/posts/3926372



Prologue   "Julius Caesar in Britannia" Kickstarter exclusive.

Book I: Under the Eagle

    Blood on the banks of the Rhine
    Narcissus - Across Gaul

Book II: The Eagle's Conquest

    Battle of Medway River (43 CE)
    Battle for Camulodunum (43 CE)

Book III: When the Eagle Hunts

    Ambush
    Fleeing the village
    Attack on the Hill fort

Do you know which battle each scenario refers to, and in which one will our heroes appear without armor?

I always loved reading through org charts, and even making my own

Greetings!
Two weeks ago we made an update on Kickstarter about the start of the Pledge Manager.
We have already been able to confirm the files with the factory and we hope to be able to deliver the games on the scheduled date, March 2024.
