Warhammer Historical Gladiator
They're obviously based on the 'Legends of the...blah de blah' system but with a focus on gladiatorial combat. I have a couple of sets of rules for this already and, needless to say, I have some Foundry and Crusader gladiators in the leadpile too. It wouldn't require more than half a dozen figures and would be easy to set up, assuming I'm not going to be scratchbuilding any arena (although that might be fun?)
The other thing that caught my eye was the inclusion of rules for naumachiae or naval combat. I have some 1/600 scale Xyston galleys that I could use for this, which would offset the twenty quid that the rules cost through extra playability. I might hang around a bit to see if someone does a special offer on these rules, perhaps with a free figure or a few quid off, but I'm pretty sure this will be on the shopping list either way.
