It wasn't all stabbing and slicing in ancient combat, during battle the air was often dark with thrown projectiles of various deadly natures.

Taking a look at some of the man and machine-powered missile armaments of the Roman period is shouter's favourite BRIAN BLESSED! - in this short film to mark the release week of Total War: ROME II.

With the help of Fight Expert Gordon Summers and the Legio II Augusta re-enactment group, BRIAN BLESSED! gets close-up with vicious ranged weaponry and hairy barbarians.

Total War: ROME II is out now.
