POLL DESCRIPTION

One of our upcoming painting contests will feature the 54mm historical figures from Alpha Miniatures. One of the rounds will be devoted to gladiators. Which of the following figures would you like to see in the contest?

(You can vote for up to five favorites, although only the figure with the most votes will be used.)

Scorpus the Retiarius

Scorpus is a Retiarius gladiator from the Imperial Roman era. This type of gladiator fought with a trident (a three pronged spear), a dagger and a net. His usual opponent was a Secutor.

Scorpus the Retiarius
Brittanicus the Secutor

The Secutor was a variety of the Murmillo gladiator, specially designed to fight the Retiarius. He wore a high-visored helmet with very small eyeholes which restricted his hearing and sight.

Brittanicus the Secutor
Brutus the Hoplomachus

The Hoplomachus was a heavy gladiator. He was named after the small round shield he carried which was small version of the classic Greek shield - hoplon.

Brutus the Hoplomachus
Philemon the Thraex

The Thraex was armoured very similarly to the Hoplomachus. He wore full greaves on both legs, padding on his left arm and a full helmet, commonly adorned with a griffin . His equipment included a small square or round shield and a sword.

Philemon the Thraex
Flamma the Provocator

This miniature is of a Provocator gladiator. Provocator's were medium gladiators and usually fought each other. They were armoured with a visored helmet, a breastplate, a half-length greave on their left leg and padding on their right arm.

Flamma the Provocator
Gaius the Murmillo

The Murmillo gladiator derived his name from a Greek word for fish. His main opponents were the other heavy gladiators, the Thraex and the Hoplomachus.

Gaius the Murmillo
Lucius the Medium Gladiator

This figure represents one of the many "normal" gladiators. Unarmored and armed with just a sword and a shield he would have been in the lightest gladiator class.

Lucius the Medium Gladiator
Cogidumnus the Dimachaerus

This figure is a Dimachaerus, a lightly armoured gladiator who fought with two swords or daggers.

Cogidumnus the Dimachaerus
Theodus the Laquerarius

The Laquerarius was a variety of Retiarius gladiator, but fought with a lasso and spear instead of a net and trident.
