Battle Report: Arena Rex 12/28/2018 Ludus Magnus vs Legio XIII

It has been a pretty long while since our last game of Arena Rex, so instead of a rematch of Guild Ball yesterday, I decided to get the arena ready for battle.

I also decided to try a new scenario 'Geminae' that we have never played before.

Scenario: Geminae
Rival cohorts vie for control of the hart of the arena and the love of the crowd.

Special Rules: Place 2 dual zones in the arena (5" diameter).

Deployment: Cohorts deploy in base contact with their controlling player's arena edge.

Cohorts: Both players bring cohorts of equal value.

Restrictions: None

Victory Conditions: The first player to control both duel zones is the victor.  The last player with models remaining in the arena is the victor, otherwise.

The arena setup.

The scenario conditions for a win made this game play very fast.  Before anyone was killed, my Ludus Magnus had both duel zones controlled.

Since no gladiator was slain yet, we decided to continue on with the game and play last gladiator standing.  At this point we decided to make the duel zones "Rings of Fire" and each time you cross the ring your gladiator will take 3 damage (but you would gain a Favor for entering the ring).  This is where Legio XIII started to make a comeback and got me down to one model remaining with 'Micon'.  In order for 'Micon' to finish off one of the Legio gladiators he would have to cross the ring and sacrifice himself.  There was no coming back for a victory, so 'Micon' made that sacrifice and Legio XIII won the match with 'Ban-Luca' still standing.

The match was actually 1-1.
