Special: The Gladiators are natural actors, used to playing to crowds. Any adjacent units gain +2 to their attack and defense due to their charisma.
Special: The Gladiators are not used to long-engagements, and take a -2 to attack and defense each turn they spend fighting. This vanishes if they spend a turn out of combat.
Gladiators come from all walks of life, and have just as many approaches to combat. The Gladiators are a wild card, unlikely to last as long in a straight up battle as trained troops, but they can cause havoc and wreak destruction quite well. Sending them in is always a gamble, but it’s sure to make a good show at least.
- Adaptable (No Penalties from Terrain/Location)
- Strong (Adds 1d10 to Combat Checks, adds 1d10 to damage)
- Variable Range (Can Attack at Range 3 as well, -2)
- Hold, you Cowards! (Each round the Gladiators fight, they gain -2 to attack and defense. This effect ends if the gladiators spend a turn out of combat)
