Those look great! Very little work and expense to make them too. Will have to make a couple of my own.
Cheers Marc.

They look great - nicely done.

For additional arena terrain - what about some grates or shallow spiked pits.

The Amera plastic moulding Amphitheatre is quite reasonably priced and might make a good addition:
