I’m getting this game, and I think a game like this need painted minis, but I’m no painter, so I need some help looking into getting replacements

What’s the base size of the minis in the game?

Does anyone have any suggestions for fitting replacement minis?

The hex size on the board is 1.5 inches or 3.8 cm across. The four figures are on hex bases that are 1 inch or 2.5 cm across.

One of my friends suggested the gladiators from Heroscape. An excellent suggestion. They are the right size and there are 6 different sculpts (3 heroes and 1 common squad of 3). The only thing missing from the Heroscape gladiators though is a sculpt with two swords, a style popular with both Spartacus and Gannicus on the show.

I you have the ability to paint them or know someone who can, take a look at Crusader Miniaures gladiator line...they come in packs of 4 a piece and are a popular scale 28mm metal. Most historically accurate I've seen...however, mine our on backorder for the past 8 Weeks.

There is a game called Ludus Gladiatorius available from em4miniatures that has excellent PREPAINTED gladiator figures. I bought a copy right after GenCon. It would work well for you.
