    I started the Jugula project using 1/32 Gladiators made by Pegasus and Italeri.

    I have the rules on order now (yes, I know, started at the wrong side again 😀 )

    This is a very timely post as I started thinking about doing exactly the same thing last week, and have had a quick look online at both the Pegasus and Italeri figures. How did you find the figures from both manufacturers ? Are they hard or soft plastic ? Do you have the rules yet – I was wondering how many gladiators I would need (assuming I was buying enough for a two to four player game) and can I get enough to play from one box set of figures ?

    @mark the italeri set has 16 figures, 2 identical spruces of 6 gladiators and a bear and a lion.

    They are very nice figures, well worth the money. I don’t have jugular, so can’t tell if that’s enough for a game though

    @pijlie very nice work and a great idea

    Same sort of plastic as airfix1/72 figures, polythene of some sort, rather than the hard plastic of model kits.

    they are pretty solid though due to the size of the figures though

    In Jugula each player has a team of 4 gladiators. So you need a minimum of 8 figures. More is better to give players a choice of gladiator types (there are 12 in the game, 6 light and 6 heavy).

    There are no rules for animals.

    A word of warning, though. If you are expecting a simulation of gladiator combat, you’d be better looking at another game. On the other hand, if you are looking for an excellent, deep game which happens to use gladiators, then it is a good choice.

    I was most pleased with the Pegasus figures, which are historically accurate and well executed. The Italeri set is very well sculpted, but has pronounced casting lines and what’s more, only three historical gladiator poses, only two of which are very dynamic. The rest is standing relaxed watching the arena as if nothing is going on and their costume seems to be based more on 19th century illustrations than archaeology.
