This Gladiator Custom Minifig uses the Minifigures Series 5 Gladiator and is updated to show him after a fight to the death. The majority of gladiators were slaves who were taught how to fight in special schools. They were trained to fight with daggers, swords, forks and nets.
The helmet, sword and shield (with added battle damage) have all be painted silver, then blood highlights have been added. The result is an excellent photograph and minifigure!
