Dimachaerus vs. Hoplomachus

Using some newly created 3D images, I have my first BatRep with them from a Vassal mod I'm working on for Red Sand, Blue Sky-Heroes of the Arena from Two Hour Wargames.

Gallipo the Dimachaerus  vs. Drusus the Hoplomachus 

Turns 5 and 6  Both gladiators stay put and gain back some of the energy they spent in turn 4.

Turn 10  Both gladiators catch their breath and gain a bonus die.

Turn 12  Both gladiators maneuver but find no opportunities, so each catch their breath.

Turn 16 and 17  Both gladiators catch their breath.

Turn 21  Both fighters catch their breath.

Turn 23 and 24  Both fighters are tired, so do nothing but catch their breath.

Turn 27  Both catch their breath.

There were a lot of ties on the "Maneuver" chart which resulted in many "Hold and catch breath" or "Step back and catch breath"...and as this match shows, it's not always a killing blow that can win a contest, but how well Bonus Dice are used and how one can outlast their opponent.  

Thanks for stopping by.

Top Down Views

I've made some top-down views for the 6 gladiators for "Red Sand, Blue Sky-Heroes of the Arena", by Two Hour Wargames with a 3D design program I have been trying to learn.  Thought it would be fun to try my hand at creating some nice visuals for Battle Reports for this awesome title by THW.
