CLASH of Spears Rule Book
CLASH of spears is a fast paced, warband level, wargame to be played in 4’ by 4’ tables over 1 to 3 hours.It was designed to be fast and intuitive, while providing realistic feel, tactical depth and high impact decision making.
Gritty and personal, CLASH relies on command points and fatigue management to represent the chaos and desperation of small scale conflict. Skills and traits are used to represent the different specialties and fighting styles of the ancient world.
CLASH moves away from the massed ranks approach of traditional ancients rule sets. It has been thought of specifically for small actions, allowing units to close and open ranks as needed, and according to their preferred fighting style.
Very much a game designed by wargamers for wargamers CLASH is able to achieve tactical depth through the value of combination of arms and terrain management, rather than resorting to board game mechanics and game specific external aids.
CLASH of spears is initially set in the Rise of Rome and the Punic wars. Its 12 army lists have been extensively playtested by 80+ people in seven countries over the last 9 months, to guarantee balanced gaming whether in club or competitive environments.
The initial army lists are: Roman Republic, Carthaginians, Lowland Gallic Tribes (Veii), Highland Gallic Tribes (Ligurians), Greek Colonies (Taranto/Syracuse), Iberians, Lusitanians, Celtiberians, Italian Hilltribes (Samnites), Italian Lowland Tribes (Campanians/Etruscans), Numidians, Macedonian expedition (Pyrrhus)
But with CLASH’s release we will provide full visibility into the point system and guidelines for players to quickly adapt CLASH to any period or armies of their liking through online support.

But its core of mercenary veterans ensures that a Carthaginian force can also push through by sheer strength, when necessary. So choose your forces wisely and uphold the glory of Carthage!
Roman Republic Boxed Set
In the 4th century BC the Rome has gained its independence and is now expanding to challenge both Greece and Carthage for hegemony over the Mediterranean sea.
Rome’s citizen army is anchored on its strong and versatile heavy infantry. Experienced Velites lead the way with javelin harassment while Hastati and Principes provide Rome with a strong offensive force that can break through any line. Finally the Triari, armed with thrusting spear and heavily armored, provide a veteran reserve that can always be relied on. Rome also uses italian allies that specialize in guerilla tactics and can provide a nasty surprise to unsuspecting opponents. So gather up your men Roman and uphold the Republic!
Gallic Warband Boxed Set
By the 4th century BC, the Celtic tribes that had originated in central Europe had greatly expanded having reached Spain, France and even crossed the Alps into Italy. As avid fighters Gauls formed part of most conflicts in the Mediterranean, either directly or a s eager mercenaries.
A Gallic warband relies first and foremost on the courage and ferociousness of its warriors, especially its Noble cast that is willing to lead the warband into the fray. Few can withstand the Gallic charge but a Gallic chieftain must be careful as his men can also tire quickly and become vulnerable if their impetus is spent. A strong Noble cavalry though, can be the perfect relief force to ensure that the warband gets a respite when needed. So Chieftain, lead your men forward…for Plunder and Glory!
