hey all

As i have mentioned in my topic about the Street of rome and the conversion see here, the plastic 28 mm figurines could be use for very dynamic poses and acrobatic fighting style (see page 3) just like TV serie Spartacus.

I can resist to the purpose and i offer to you my conversion of the weekend about a gladiator leaping in the spartacus style to enter in melee against his opponent !

Hope you 'll like them.  o_o







Next, the paint job, as soon as it's possible   :?


the basing problem will be seen later

Hello Eric

wow... :o

I love that conversion.
Excelent work.
I must do some of that stuff for me. :)
Unfortunately my painting is getting behind. My free time is being spent resting instead of painting. :'(
But some conversions are on their way so maybe i have some news soon.

Cheers

Rui

Thats very nice mate very dynamic. Of course to make it truly like Spartacus you will have to use more blood than is in the human body for every slash.

thanks for the feedback  ;)

the most funny is that it's a very easy convertion without too much material.

A plastic Warlord celt with a running poses, some glue, a foundry gladiator head (from a Dwarf Gladiator), the sword is the original one reduce to the gladius/dagger size and the shield is a plastic one.

i'll detailed the WIP soon  8)

cheers
Eric

Thanks Rui,

don't panic, it's a murphy law for our hobby. It's make me 35 years about gaming and i still have a mountain lead to paint !

Strange isn't it ?

Eric
