    Roc,my friend,GOOD JOB (y) (y) !!! As for some groundwork ideas,how about having him charging across a shallow stream or a dry wash(if depicting water isn't your cup of tea ;) ) The current pose seems to suggest an assault of some kind being carried out.Just my 2 cents worth.Cheers !

    Hey Stephen, my friend thanks,much appreciated.

    As far as my photographic skills, they are not very good;I'm going to try to photograph the finished product out side with natural lighting maybe that will help a little.

    Roc, is it me or are your pictures a lot better too. Seem clearer and your Roman is outstanding. Very nice work.

    Roc,
    I gotta agree with my brother...these pics really bring out the outstanding work you have done on him...wow...spectacular work on the Roman...The weathered look of the leather and armor is first rate. I can't wait to see how you tie him into the ground work...

    Hope all is well

    Thanks Larry, I took the last three pictures outside with natural lighting and I think they turned out a little better.

    Hey Roc,

    Having seen your work in person and this one only in pictures I think this is one of your best. I look forward to actually seeing this one in person. Good job. (y)

    Thanks Joe, Your opinion is always very important to me.

    After seeing your Pegaso Gladiator, and the fine job you did on him, I went ahead and ordered one from Red Lancer, he will be on my to do list.


    Roc. :)
