My first Historical minis! Gladiators
« on: May 20, 2018, 09:44:07 AM »
I honestly can't believe I've never painted any historical miniatures before. Mostly Fantasy with the odd sci-fi thing thrown in here. Lately though SAGA has been looking very appealing but before getting into that I was itching to get some gladiators and luckily at the time some were being sold here on LAF. So I got to painting them. So far all of them have their skin painted and half have the base coats of the armour completed. Of that half, I have finished half.
Here is what I have. (I forgot I need to do a little wash on the shield rims.)
Group shot.

Next is possibly my favourite sculpt of the bunch

Well done! And welcome to historicals. You have taken your first step away from what my nephew calls "Childish Nonsense" (he's joking, because he actually plays 40K and Lord of the Rings himself).  :)

Thálatta! Thálatta!
