This is the first of my Gladiator teams - Legio Condemnare (The Condemned Legion), The idea behind these guys is that they are all ex - military, either deserters or legionaries that some senator took a disliking too and managed to get condemned to the arenas of the Roman Empire, simply put, they were shafted big time ! in the picture above from left to right, the first Legionary is fighting in the Velite style, one pilum and a sword but no shield, the second legionary is fighting in the legions traditional style sword and shield but no pilum, and the third legionary is fighting in the dimachaerius style (dual swords). As mentioned last post there will only be four to five Gladiator teams, for when I get enough people to play a multi player arena combat event or if I ever do a Gladiator type campaign, either way it will be lots of fun, now as far as the other teams go, I'm thinking along the lines of :
Team Legio condemnare- Completed
- Barbarian team Germans - Part Completed
- Hellenic Team (Greek) - On Order
Team Champions of Rome- Completed
- Celtic Team Gauls - Arrived
Next week I should have the Emperors team finished ... I'll see you then.

Here are some more Gladiators I painted up this week, from left to right we have a Condemned Criminal - No personal armour just a lousy shield and sword, the middle guy is a Secutor, these guys were often paired up with a retiarius(dude with the net), and the last guy is a Sagittarius, an archer, this particular one is of the Greek persuasion.
The two outer miniatures are Foundry and the centre miniature is a Crusader.
I still have plenty more to paint, including another Champion, and various other unfortunate souls that have ended up in my Gladiator school.
