New RSBS: HotA gladiator Sheets

He diseñado nuevas fichas para la segunda edición de "Red Sand Blue Sky: Heroes of the Arena", ya que las que hice para la versión anterior ya no sirven.

Podéis ver una ficha en blanco y dos ejemplos de ficha completa (retiarius y secutor). Poco a poco iré haciendo fichas para todos los tipos de gladiadores y animales, pero me vendrían bien vuestros consejos e ideas. ¿Qué opináis, falta o sobra algo?

I´ve designed new sheets for "Red Sand Blue Sky: Heroes of the Arena" second edition rules, as the ones I did for the previous version can´t be used now.

Here you can see a blank sheet and two examples of full record (retiarius and secutor). Little by little, I'll make sheets for all gladiators types and animals, but I could use your advice and ideas. Do you think something is missing or left over?

Nos vemos!

Eques (unmounted) - second model

Eques, plural Equites

No estoy muy seguro del resultado final... pero quería terminarlo ya. Lo que menos me convence es el escudo, que lleva escrito el nombre del eques (Habilis), pero no se me ocurrían otros diseños.
------------
I'm not pretty sure about the final look... but I wanted to finish it already. What convinces me less is the shield, which has the name of the eques inscribed on it (Habilis), but I couldn´t think of other designs.







Y ahora, a seguir con la versión a caballo!
------------
And now, go on with the horseback version!

Chimera (WIP)

Llevaba mucho tiempo buscando esta figura y al final la he encontrado :-)
Aunque no juego a Confrontation desde que desapareció, esta es una de esas figuras que quería comprarme sólo por el placer de pintarla.
---------------
I had been looking for this figure for a long time and finally I´ve found it :-) I haven't play Confrontation since it disappeared, but this is one of those figures I wanted to buy just for the pleasure of painting it.





Probablemente la coloque sobre una base de Impetus. Si algún día me apetece (y tengo tiempo) podré jugar a Impetus Fantasticus. Si no, simplemente quedará bonita en la vitrina.
---------------
Probably I´ll place it on an Impetus base. If someday I feel like (and have time), I can play Impetus fantasticus. If not, it will just look pretty nice in the showcase.

Fight for the Pons


He terminado las reglas para el escenario "Lucha por el puente". He jugado unas cuantas partidas y los resultados han sido muy variados así que no creo que haya algún gladiador que salga especialmente favorecido. También he terminado de pintar la plataforma, aunque me he dado cuenta de que me ha quedado un poco pequeña para las bases que yo uso.
---------------
I´ve finished the rules for the "Fight for the bridge" scenario. I´ve played a few games and the results have been varied so I don't think there is any gladiator who comes out particularly favored. I've also finished painting the pons, but I have realized that it´s a little small for the bases I use.


Botón derecho sobre la imagen y "Guardar enlace como" para descargar la reglas del escenario.

Eques (unmounted)

Eques, plural Equites

El eques era considerado un gladiador de tipo ligero. Estaba equipado con una manica tradicional (aunque en este modelo de Crusader es de metal) y yelmo cerrado. En las piernas usaba polainas o vendajes. De acuerdo a las numerosas representaciones que nos han llegado, los combates entre equites acababan a pie, donde el eques abandonaba la lanza y combatía con espada y escudo.
---------------
The eques was considered a ligth gladiator. He was equipped with a traditional manica (although this Crusader model, has a metal one) and closed helmet. In the legs they wore leggings or bandages. According to the many representations that have survived, fighting between equites ended on foot, where the eques left the spear and fought with sword and shield.







El próximo eques llevará una túnica verde.
----------------
The next eques will wore a green tunic.

Eques (mounted)

Eques, plural Equites

Si estaban incluidos en el progama, una pareja de equites montados en caballos blancos iniciaban los combates de gladiadores. Vestían amplias túnicas de colores y portaban llamativos escudos para ser fácilmente reconocidos por el público. Tras unos cuantos lances, lo más frecuente es que el combate continuase a pie.
---------------
If they were included in the program, a couple of equites, riding white horses, opened the gladiator combats. They wore large colored robes and carry striking shields to be easily recognized by the public. After a few attacks, the battle usually continued on foot.

Este eques lleva dibujado en su escudo el número de combates en los que ha salido victorioso.
---------------
This eques has paint on his shield the number of combats he has won.





Ahora me queda terminar la versión desmontada.
