The Hot Gates
You all know Leo: the endlessly enthusiastic star of our Leo Live shows. Well you might not know that his full name is actually Leonidas – just like the famous Spartan king who led the 300 at Thermopylae. This being the case, we could hardly produce a game set in Ancient Greece without paying homage to that archetype of selfless bravery.
The Thermopylae map board is a $10 add-on that includes 1 double-sided, 60cm square, mounted map, plus 1 scenario. The map board itself is a high-quality item, using the same specification as the ones we used for Conan – if you have that game then you already know how good they are!
The map shows the battlefield, the cliffs, and the nearby sea into which you can force your foes. It offers a nice choke point for movement that gives the whole map a very different feeling to the others. Movement is restricted and controlled, and positioning is critical.
The scenario allows for flanking of the Thermopylae position as well as frontal assaults, and makes the most of the unusual terrain types and layout of this new map.
Like all of our map boards, the Thermopylae map can be used for skirmish games as well as scenarios, making it a really exciting addition to the range. More maps means more flexibility and more replayability.
While the main purpose of this pack is to revisit Thermopylae, we obviously didn’t want to give you a map with nothing on the back. So, having planned this in advance, we asked our board artist, George Cl4renko, to paint our open sea board at twice the width. One half we used for the sea board in the Poseidon expansion; the other half we use here for the flip side of Thermopylae. This means that you can put the two sea boards next to each other to form a double-size area for really big sea battles! And, because they were originally one piece of art, they fit together perfectly.
Blue stat clips are go! You ask, and we deliver!
This new $3 add-on provides enough stat clips for 5 dashboards in Titan Blue. It will be included in every TYPHON add-on bundle.
