Crusader miniatures are the range used in the book:

One clarification, and one question that we'll need to decide if/when we start our ludus':

Any upgrade you buy for you Ludus is kept if you buy a better Ludus.

One we need to decide, as it xan be read both ways - Specialists - max of one of each, or allow multiples of any type (up to the max allowed)?

Looking through the book, there’s a not insignificant requirement for NPC gladiators, slaves/criminals and beasts. I’m sure we could muddle through but worth considering.

I’m guessing there must be a second printing as mine has the errata already in.

Yeah, wondered on that myself, as I thought the errata net rules were the ones I'd read, but kept forgetting to do a proper check.

Easy check from the Ranged skill on pg 38. They managed to include leaving the changed word in red (‘hit’) when copy pasting from the errata doc. :lol:

Things we would need to do some campaign events by the books:

- 4 pillars (Those statues I made could work?)
- 2 pit traps (Dungeon tiles?)
- A bridge or platform (Warcry terrain?)
- 2 braziers (?)
- 2 or more hapless criminals.
- And the tricky one, beasts...

Lion,
Tiger,
Bear,
Bull,
Rhino,
Hippo,
Panther,
3 x Dogs,
Crocodile,
Elephant

All I can offer beast wise is a Warcry dog unless you want to stray into Gryph-hound territory. Or I suppose I can do a ridiculously huge crocodile with cyber additions from Necromunda!

Anyone got any great model/terrain offerings or ideas to cover any of the above?

Pillars we have covered in the terrain boxes somewhere - the white ones.
I have some spiked Pits somewhere for blood Bowl, I'll try and dig them out.

Some of the beasts might be covered in the creature boxes I have, will take a look.
If not, and the games a hit, there's always the zoo range in the toy shop.

I have a bear and a leopard.

Plus my smaller wolves pass as dogs.
