We who are about to die....

These guys have been finished for a little bit and waiting for their time in the spotlight.  Finally got 5 minutes away from baby detail and took some quick pics.  Hope you like them.  First up, Atticus the Hoplomachus.  Then Scipio, a Provocator.  Felix, the skilled Dimachaerus.  Finally, Tiberius the Murmillo.  Atticus and Scipio are from Crusader Miniatures and Felix and Tiberius are from Foundry.  This rounds out my total gladiator count to 8, enough for a good fight.  I have some Wargames Factory Cesar Romans on the painting table now to use as guards or to fight in larger battles.  Some pics to follow soon.

Foundry, Crusader, and Brigade Games Figures

Some people over on LAF were discussing if Foundry, Crusader, and Brigade Games gladiators are compatible.  I think they are, not every slave is going to be built like a brick sh!t house.

Secutor and Retiarius

Two more gladiators are added to the Ludus of Justinian Cervus to battle in the arena.  I have a Hoplomachus and a Provocator on the painting table right now.  Now, may I present, Africanus the Secutor and Ansgar the Retiarius.  Africanus isn't from Africa, he was actually born in Rome from slave parents and sold to this Ludus when he was a young teen.  Ansgar is a slave from the Northern province and speaks very little Latin.   Hope you like them.
