Completed Alkiviades

    Hello to all of you,
    I have just finished this beauty from Pegaso. The company represents an early Roman soldier but after a minor conversion on the "Montefortino" helmet I transform it to an "Attic" helmet and the soldier became an Athenian high rank hoplite.
    I represent the Athenian general Alkiviades.
    The shield sign is called "Thunderthrowing Love" (Κεραυνοβόλος Έρωτας) !!! This is exactly the same expression that we (modern Greeks) still using when someone "Falling in Love".
    Τhat was the personal sign of Alkiviades and because he was a high member of his clan (the "Alkmaionids") he has the right to change the old sign (the white legs "λευκόποδες") of the clan with his own one.
    The figure is painted in acrylics except the metals which are painted with printers ink.
    The bird is a goldfinch (καρδερίνα) and I made it by carving a piece of wood.
    I hope you like it, my best regards
    Christos Panagiotopoulos.

    Duuuuude, that is awesome! What scale? That helmet must have been difficult (I see Formula 1 or NASCAR in his future). I also see that it's a clean paint; no weathering, dirt, or grime.

    Well done!

    Wow! Indeed it's a wonderful work, Christos.
    I think it's the perfect finish in everything.
    A ground work is unique and original.
    And the design of the shield is also very beautiful.
    I congratulate completion.

    Mitsutaka.

    Το βάψιμο είναι καταπληκτικό! Τα καρό στο κράνος είναι απορίας άξιο πως έγιναν τόσο μικρά...
    Τι χρησιμοποίησες για τα φυτά και το πουλάκι;

    Χρήστο συγχαρητήρια!!!

    Thanks again my friends for your warm feedbacks,

    Γιώργο τα φυτά είναι αληθινά, το πουλάκι το έφτιαξα σκαλίζοντας ένα κομμάτι ξύλο.

    Best regards,
    Christos
