Quote:Forgive my stupid & obvious statement - It looks like the outfit Marcus Junkelmann was researching/producing for. (We have a great debt to the research you guys have done).

Well spotted :-) ) Yes it is, I'm in his group for a number of years now.

Quote:Martin, don't you hate that dirty trick with the trident, pulling your shield down?

More than that, I just simply hate retiarii ;-) )

Quote:Glad to see your guy using the net like a net, and not like a whip/flail. Does it have a rope tied on so he can retrieve it?

Actually, they normally try both ways :-P P And no, there's no rope tied to it. When it's gone, it's gone.

Absolutley stunning Martin 8) 8) 8) 8)
Superb equipment and you guys obviously work really hard at what you do.

You keep raising the bar and the rest of us will just have to jump higher to keep up.

May you go from strength to strength.

Regards,

Gary.

I see them now! Wonder what was up last night with the photos? Oh, well, all's well that ends well. Wait, it doesn't seem to have ended well for the retarius...

Grazie.

Just in case you have not seen them there are some pictures of the Gladiators of Pax Augusta from France at the event in Grand over in the Events section.

An up-to-date group picture of my gladiator group, from left to right:
Retiarius Cerberus, Tiro Thraex Ferox (he has not his complete kit yet hence only the wooden training sica), Provocatrix Medusa and Murmillo Lupus
