S.P.Q.oRc is Maveryc Games' 'heroic' scale set of miniature skirmish rules pitching Orcs of the Noman Empire (as the name suggests, based on the Roman Empire) against the Halfling Boche (based on the varied tribes of Britain around the time of Boudica).

The miniatures, rules and starter pack ("Pax Bochemannica") are distributed in the U.K. and beyond by Hysterical Games who have done wonders expanding both the miniatures and background. You can see the entre range here on thier website.

They really are wonderfull character miniatures and well worth a look if alternate history featuring fantasy races is your kind of thing (and if you're still reading this, it probably is ;) ) 


An Orcs in the Webbe Original! Master modelmaker Tony Harwood shows us a little something special from Maveryc's S.P.Q.o.R.c.

An Orcs in the Webbe Exclusive! We bring you an exclusive excerpt from an early draft of the first expansion to Pax Bochemannica, Legio IX - The Return of The Ninth. Carrying on from where we left him at the end of Pax Bochemannica's Friends in High Places story arc Maximum Voluum returns...

An Orcs in the Webbe Original! Centurion Shakslag Brutalus and his Noman Orc unit have been assigned to aide the architect Ugnob Jumpedupicus in what he considers to be a frankly bloody ridiculous exercise in the Boche forests miles away from the front line fighting. 

An Orcs in the Webbe Original! The Peckham Irregulars have seen such success and growth in recent month that not only is food becoming an issue but so is the sheer amount of 'enthusiasm' shown by the younger members, the Yoofs. What they need is something to kick in...

An Orcs in the Webbe Original! Stumbling home after a night out celebrating his birthday, the Boche Rodknee and some of his Youf mates decide to pitch a few cleverly worded insults (not to mention a shed load of stones) at some Noman legionaires on thier way home.

An Orcs in the Webbe Original! Del, fearless leader of the Peckham Irregulars, has come up with a plan to capture a Noman Orc tribune that will not only provide him with a shiny new Noman sword but also enough capital to secure himself as Diamond, the warbands leader (not to mention keeping his other half in the style she has become accustomed to). A Pax Bochemannica scenario for two players.

An Orcs in the Webbe Original! Master modeller Tony Harwood renovates an old Halfling Hole in this cracking article showing how older terrain can be brought back to your tabletop.

An Orcs in the Webbe Original! Master modeller Tony Harwood takes us step by step through the creation of a simple but tremendously functional piece of terrain that can be used for many different games systems.
