Byzantium: Beyond the Golden Gate


Expands Warhammer Ancient Battles

From the publisher:
In the West, Rome may have fallen, but in the East, Byzantium ensured the Roman values and spirit endured for another 1000 years.

This 128-page sourcebook contains an historical overview of the period and covers events from 527 to 1204 A.D. During this period we see the rise of importance of the cavalryman on the field of battle and this book reflects that development as Byzantium repeatedly struggled and triumphed.

Featured within this book are detailed army lists including:

  • Early Byzantines 527-660 AD - including the armies of Justinian and Heraclius.
  • Germanic Kingdoms 442-800 AD - including the armies of the Ostrogoths and Lombards.
  • Sassanid Persians 226-649 AD - including armies for the early and later Sassanid period.
  • Steppe Nomads 558-1200 AD - including the armies of the Magyars and Penchenegs.
  • Thematic Byzantines 660- 1042 AD - including the armies of the Isaurian and Macedonian dynasties.
  • Bulgars and Slavs 643- 1018 AD - including the armies of the early and later Bulgars.
  • Early Caliphates 632- 1073 AD - including the armies of the Arab Conquest and Abbasids.
  • The Rus 750-1250 AD - including the armies of the Early Pagan and Great Rus.
  • Later Byzantines1042-1185 AD - including the armies of the Komnenian dynasty.

Using these 9 lists and appendixes you can create over 35 different variations of armies from the Byzantine period. Also included are some Orders of Battle for some famous encounters from the period including:

  • The Battle of Dara 530 AD.
  • The Battle of Yarmuk 636 AD.
  • The Battle of Dorostolon 971 AD.
  • The Battle of Manizkert 1071 AD.

The book also contains a 16-page full-color section portraying the armies of the time and a wealth of illustrations and color maps.
