Sergio recently reminded me of this amazing looking miniatures game and I wanted to share it here. Arena Rex is a game of gladiatorial style combat featuring Roman and fantasy-inspired combatants, represented by high quality miniatures. If you’re a fan of miniature games then I think this would be worth a look for you!
I could tell you about the game but I think their website offers a great description:
“Arena Rex is an innovative tabletop skirmish game. The experience has been built from the ground up to be tactically deep, yet streamlined and accessible. A low model count combined with easily digestible rules make Arena Rex easy to pick up and play. Alternating activations, opposed die rolls, and out-of-turn reactions keep you engaged throughout the game. A dynamic round structure offers new gameplay and tactical opportunities unique to Arena Rex. Damage trees offer new levels of control within a flexible combat resolution system.”
“You can get started playing Arena Rex with only 3 models per side. The standard game size is 5 minis per player, a battle of this size usually takes about 45 minutes. You’ll need a measuring device and some D6. Arena Rex’s fatigue mechanic requires a token for each mini you field and every Arena Rex miniature is supplied with this token as well as our custom, doric inspired base, a 4×6 art card with background info, and a game rules reference card.”
Their website is full of amazing looking miniatures, accessories for the game and additional details including the downloadable rules PDF for Arena Rex. Click here to jump over to their website and check it out!
