Many moons ago I painted some of the many gladiators. I never got very far with them as I needed a solid board to play on. Thanks to BP Laser I was able to get a custom cut and etched board for my gladiator games.
Above are the collection of painted gladiators. Spent ages trying to sort them into their classes, not as easy as it seemed. Still think I got a few wrong.
Another close up.
Above is the custom cut and etched board that BP Laser produced for me. Measures 2'x2'. It's great that I can just collapse it after use and carry it anywhere I like. It's on 3mm thick MDF. The hexes are 30mm. Now just have to paint it to get that bloody sand look.
The figures are a mostly Foundry, and are 28/30mm. They are based on 30mm bases and all I did for the base texture was to pour in PVA Glue and Kindergarten Sand with a mix of small pebbles.
Still debating on what rules to run with. To date I have 4 sets which I will have to have a read of and decide which one I like the best. Maybe I'll mesh some of them together and see what I come up with!
