Morituri Te Salutant
About this creation
















"Ave Imperator, morituri te salutant!" - "Hail, Emperor, those who are about to die salute you!"

This MOC is a first for me on a couple levels; first, it is one of my first, if not my first, serious ancient history MOC. And second, it's built on a 32 x 32 baseplate; I cannot remember the last time I used one!

It was an interesting study in Roman architecture, especially the columns. The arena's walls also turned out to be rather tricky; if you look closely, you can see the arches over the gate and the juxtaposing windows are upside-down. I also played with different feels and textures - from the wooden planks patching up the right half of the roof (just to mix it up!), to the tan stonework to the studded, dark tan dirt.

But by far the most fun I had with this MOC were the minifigures; all of the parts in this MOC are, of course, official, so the gladiators (and especially the Roman soldiers) were oodles of fun to put together.

That's really awesome! This is one of my favourite creations of yours. The columns are really cool. I like how you made the gladiators (I want chrome arms too!) and Caesar's right arm. The decorations have great details, too. Excellent job!

Bravo!!! Well done!!! I love it :) My favorite parts are the columns and the roof. You don't see the octagonal columns used much. Kudos just for having those. The gladiator on the far left -- what set is the armor & helmet from? Space Police? Inspiring work :)

Again, you impress the world by your amazing building styles and ingeniousness. You get the newest sets and find the best way to use new pieces. If only I had the money... Lol, really good model.

Holy Krap Jordan you just keep whipping these things out! I also thought the new helmet from Atlantis would be PERFECT for gladiators. However I am not wild about spending $100.00 Maybe B-link. Congrats on the great build.

This is fantastic but where did you get the golden helmet on the one gladiator wearing only a loincloth?

Excellent! With love to every detail and some (strange) fun. The damaged roof, the statues in the pediment (?) the pillar tops ... Very nice.

Beautiful once again, Sir Nadroj. This is what classifies the meaning of a structure, which obviously leads to a 5 out of 5! ~Ryan
