Here at North Star, we just taken delivery of a brand-new miniatures game for playing Roman gladiators, called Sons of Mars.

Sons of Mars

It's an 83-page, full-color, softback rulebook. You can buy it here.

In the author's words:

Sons of Mars is a ruleset that gives players the ability to recreate the gladiatorial games of ancient Rome on the tabletop. Build your ludus from the ground up, and take to the sands of the arena with a deep campaign system that has gladiator progression, ludus expansion, special events, and much more.

The combat system in Sons of Mars aims to take the fighting beyond simple dice-rolling and leans toward a more tactical approach. With a combination of 13 different actions and 30-plus abilities, the players, not the dice gods, will have the most control over how the battles on the sands of the arena unfold.

Inside this book, you will also find rules for 17 classes of gladiators, ten beasts, over 20 different match types, four Roman festivals with themed matches, 40-plus NPCs (Non-Player Characters), plus rules for campaign and solo play.

You can watch the author's YouTube channel here.

As a special offer, if you buy the book from us before August, we'll include a free Crusader Miniatures gladiator pack of your choice with the rulebook!
