Our group is having an Arena Rex meetup sometime next month. I already have enough models to play, but I bought another one last year in a group order. It seemed like the perfect incentive to put brush to miniature and get back to fully painted!
The model is question is Aemilia, from Roman Imperial Ludus Britannicus, also known as Legio XIII. She’s the daughter of an aristocrat that wanted nothing of that dull life, and decided to test her skills in the arena instead.
I mostly put aside painting in the past months to concentrate on sculpting, but I got back to my brushes recently, and completed a couple models. The first of those I present now, Aquila for Arena Rex.
This is the last model to complete the Legio XIII faction starter, and with him done, I can now get to playing. Next up, I will paint some terrain to fill out the arena. I do have a couple more models in the queue, but they are not to be painted any time soon. We’ll see if they rise to the top after getting the game to the table though.

Last weekend was CaptainCon 2018. It’s the first big con I was able to attend since GenCon in 2014. TempleCon (which I attended multiple times, and was my first convention ever) and CaptainCon ran parallel for some time, but the latter is now held at the same venue and time slot as the former, that is sadly now defunct. I felt almost right back at home; similar gaming setup, similar game selection, even some of the vendors had the same spot!
My goal with CaptainCon was simple; enjoy the road trip with the guys and the time away from the family, and play & test games I don’t get to the table often enough back home.
