Queen of the Celts
Queen of the Celts from Avalanche Press is their wargame of the conflict between the Romans and the Iceni. You know, the celts of Britain who were led by the very able Queen Boadicca. I know, before you even think it (much less write it), that there are other alternative spellings of her name. And don't get me started on acceptable pronunciations. But given the alternative artwork (shown above) that you can order the game with on the cover (see the web page for the normal, retail version of the artwork), I think that her name should be pronounced Bodacious.
The game itself is part of the Rome at War series, and really looks quite good. And as the publishers know, everyone loves a celt. Especially one with (historically debatable) a figure like shown above.
