Those dice look great Frank,  8) so much blood sweat and tears has gone into this project now over the years!

Thanks Matt. I'll be at ShireCon on Saturday if you are around.

Awesome to catchup with Furt (the Man, The Myth, The Legend!) and his apprentice Lanista Victor at Shirecon in Sydney yesterday! The new dice and arena look awesome  :-*

Really great looking game! I’ve been thinking of getting a gladiatorial game for a number of years but never got around to it.

Yeah it was great fun Muzfish. Quite a few combats and some good playtesting.

Thank you gents!  :)

The boards were made by Brutal Cities and the beautiful gladiators are Tas and Alan's.

I've met so many wargamers with gladiator collections lately it boggles the mind.  o_o
