Ludite, Romani!

A friend and I am keen to try out Jugula, the gladiator rules from Studio Tomahawk. I've painted up a couple of familia, using Crusader Miniatures. The first familia is made up of a murmillo, a provocator, a laqueator and a crupellarius.



The other one has a murmillo, provocator, retiarius and dimachaerus.



I really like these minis - loads of character and historically accurate details. Stand by for thoughts on the rules after we play a campaign day on Wednesday.

    Those freehand shields are particularly impressive.

  4. Great start to your holidays mate! I might just happen to have a dozen or so 28mm Gladiators to throw into the ring too :-)

    Not sure I can match your freehand shield work after 18 months without a brush in my hand, not that I ever matched it well in the first place :-)

  5. Nice work! I agree that the Crusader gladiators are first rate sculpts.

  8. I can now confirm that these familia gladiatoria are even better in the flesh!
    Thanks for sharing your very nice toys at last night's Jugula game mate :-)
