Gladiator Terrain 
I have an old GW LOTR Mines of Moria set that's been gathering dust on the shelf, so decided to pinch the trapdoors to make some features for the arena. I think I need to paint in some iron bars across the black bits but, otherwise, they'll do very nicely when I need to release the hounds (or whatever). They were very quick to produce so I'm happy with the result, even if they're a little over scale.
I've also painted the bases on the dead gladiators, using a different approach to that I used on the rest of the gladiator figures. I painted a basecoat of Foundry Boneyard Shade, followed by a wash in GW Devlan Mud and finished off with a three stage drybrush of Foundry Base Sand. I think it looks better than my original method, so will probably re-paint the other bases to match, if I have the time.
