Just a little more oil...

A smallish post today showing the limited progress on a small project a couple of are doing on LAF. Gladiators!

I must admit, this one took me by surprise when it got mentioned but as always I was collared hook, line and sinker :-)

The rules are a play test list by one of the members of LAF and are proving to be much fun (swing on over to have a proper shufty) with never two matches the same.

My Ludus is owned by Bibulus the Flos (a given name...) and is a small arena in the provinces. The basic board is a lasered plate with 30mm across the flats hexes scored on with a gap between them, these are then covered in sand and painted a suitable sand colour.

The sides are bendy MDF and will be enclosed by the rest of the arena, seating etc. I haven't quite decided on the layout yet for the rest but I'd like to include some other elements, like quarters for the gladiators and some rooms for the lanista... We'll see.


For the moment I only have two members of the Ludus but I'm hoping this is going to change soon. First off is a retarius.


And secondly we have a Thraex.


They are 40mm Battle Honours and although the sculpting certainly isn't the best they will do the job :-)
