Commenced the Gladiator Arena, built on a 600x600 board so it will fit onto my small table and by adding two other sections will become a chariot racing arena also.


600 x 600 plywood board, with 20x20 cut to length.


I used a ruler as a compass and drilled my steps into it for marking out the pieces


the base will be covered in sand


upper section cut, this will form the main base and height for the arena.


On the outer edge I will add shops and painted walls and possibly some graffiti


adding steps and seats

Glue drying tonight on the first stage. Next week some more progress on the Dust and Shadows Gladiator project

cheers
Matt

Completed another three during the week and managed to get a picture today. A few more figures and some animals to go. Work on the arena is also progressing.

Nice project. I'm launching into Gladiators in MMXXII, got an arena in the works and a ludus full of Gladiators (mainly Crusader minis).

For rules I will be using "Blood, Sweat and Cheers" from Ganesha Games.  They are quick playing to resolve a 1v1 combat, reflecting a number of the different fighting styles. Hoping to get a one night tournament at the club, see who can win the rudis and a glorious retirement.

Will be watching your project with interest.

Thank you Michi, happy new year to you too mate. Arena will progress after I return from our winter/ summer holidays in Australia. Some time in March I will return to the build.

Cheers
