Bit of an image-dump post, some pictures from a recent games night using Playmobil gladiator figures! We used the wondeful Song of Blades and Heroes ruleset with some modifications (particularly taking into account the fact that we could remove shields and weapons, so for example, a combatant with a shield ignores the first "knocked down" result, but loses the shield...this can then be recovered with one action when out of combat).

|Things get interesting with the introduction of a bear...|
|And they don't exactly turn out well for the Dimachaerus|
