*PRE-SALE* EPIC H.A.C.K.S. Gladiator Skeleton 1/12 Scale Figure
From the Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. universe, comes the EPIC series - a realm where life is larger and filled with unknown creatures. The first timewarp opened, the Boneyard, is home to some truly terrifying creatures - the Epic skeletons! The ancient creatures, long since evolved past the need for flesh, skin or muscle, present as ten foot tall skeletons, living organisms made of bone who appear to possess conscious thought and very human motivations.
While it's unknown where the Gladiators first appeared, one of their kind was captured by the ancient Romans and forced into combat with one of their most popular warriors. After decimating its enemy, the skeleton vanished, and a group of them reappeared sometime later, dressed in oversized Gladiator garb, tailored just for their impressive bulk. Confronting the emperor who had forced them into combat, they slew him and hundreds of his men, laying waste to the city and cleaving a massive chunk from the colosseum.
Since that time, these Bone Battlers in Gladiator armor have made their presence known throughout various periods of time, and in every case they are crafty, skilled warriors, preferring to use guile and speed over the brute strength of their Barbarian comrades. That can work against them as they get overcome by superior numbers, especially when they venture into the fantasy era and find themselves up against a horde of Orcs.
Tales tell of a time when a Gladiator and a Barbarian ended up on opposite sides of battle and the resulting destruction from their skirmish leveled a small town and reduced a nearby forest to splinters.
