    Hello Planeteers,
    here is my next finished figure. He is from Soldiers-SGF.
    Casting is excellent with one of the best faces i have ever painted in this scale.
    The support for the aquila was inspired by a photo from a reenactor aquilifer.

    Every comment is welcome!

    Brilliant stuff, Christian.(y) One does have to wonder, however, how they came by that lion skin. Honourably, I'm sure, or it could never be displayed in public........
    Interesting article on the Aquila, many thanks for posting.

    Beautiful work.No wonder about the face since this is sculpt by one of the most gifted micro sculptors of all times,a native Italian who loves his country's history,the venerable Adriano Laruccia (or the Maestro to myself and other dedicated fans of his work).You have certainly done justice to it.I love the deep,rich reds and of course the eagle support.I will certainly use it as reference.
