15mm Fantasy Gladiator Preview

One of the really fantastic things about opening a miniature company is getting to meet and work with some fantastic people involved in every part of the hobby.  One of those people is Ed from Two Hour Wargames.  I have played in a lot of his con games, and they are always a lot of fun and filled with much laughter.  After spending an evening playing his gladiator game at Cold Wars 2011, I was thrilled when he emailed me to let me know about a fantasy gladiator set he was working on.  Ed and I have been communicating back and forth, and I am working on a few boxed sets to put out along with his release of the ruleset.  You can see more info on the ruleset here .

A lot of the figures for the boxed sets are going to come from other packs I have but here are some specifically sculpted for this set.

In the first picture, we have four sculpts by Faron Betchley.  From left to right are a troll with trident and net.  Faron did a great job getting the ropey feel of a troll.  Next, a snakeman with trident and net attached to tail.  Third, is a great orc or ogre, and finally, is the minotaur.

Troll, Snakeman, Great Orc/Ogre, Minotaur

In the second picture, we have a gargoyle sculpted by Faron Betchley as well as a hyena hero and crocodile gladiator, both sculpted by Rodrick Campbell.  Be looking for the game and figure release in April or May.

Someone emailed me the link to the THW news last week and I thought "nah, I'm not interested in that..."

But, now I've seen these little fellas, I think I'll get me a set; they're great!

Off topic David - have you got any more Splintered Lands in the pipeline?

I am going to be adding a few new sculpts to the animals. My dad and I are writing a quick play skirmish set of rules for them and I will be selling them in warbands by race.
