Celts and Gladiators















Here are a few photos of another warband and more skirmishers for my Celts. Figures are a mix of A&A Miniatures, Renegade, 1st Corps, Vendel/Sgt Major's and Warlord, plus a few ranges that I'm not sure  about. The final shot is of some old Gladiator Games gladiators (now Black Hat Miniatures), with left to right, a Diamacherus, Samnite, Hoplomachus and Retiarius. 

I have quite a big collection of 25/28mm gladiators and spectators by Foundry, Crusader and Steve Barber Models, including the very nice resin gladiator arena. Studio Tomahawk has recently released Jugula, a new card driven set of gladiator rules, which I'm really looking forward to, hopefully I will get my copy in the mail next week. I have also bought quite a few of the new plastic box sets released at Salute but haven't had time to assemble them yet, let alone paint them.
