Blood, Sweat and Cheers - the 28mm Ludus expands

Snatching a couple of hours of downtime over Halloween, I painted up two more 28mm gladiators for my gladiator school. I have dozens of 15mm fighters, but there is something nice about these big lads when you are only using one miniature at a time. 

On the left are the old hands, Lycus the murmillo and Satyros the thraex; on the right are Zeno the retiarius, and Scorpus the secutor. Lycus, Satyros and Scorpus are all from Wargames Foundry, Zeno is from Crusader Miniatures.

    These look terrific Nic. They’d be great for Munera Sine Missione, the best-ever set of gladiator rules ;)

    2. Well - pointed response ;) if you ever decide 6mm gladiators are the future, you know where to find me. Ave, vale atque!

    3. :)

      You know I have looked at doing a Slave Revolt army in 6mm, but the scope of actualy 6mm gladiators seems limited to Irregular Miniatures. I realise that most escaped gladiators would likely ditch their arena gear in favour of captured weapons, but where is the style in that?
