    Hey all - I finished this wonderful figure about a week ago. Another 75mm beauty from Pegaso. I usually finish about 3 figures during my Winter time off, but this may be the only one I get done this time. Anyway, I had a enjoyable time painting this. The reds turned out a little darker in the photos than it actually is. Painted all in acrylics - Vallejo, Andrea, Reaper, JoSonja, Ceramcoat, Pollyscale, Games workshop. All comments, questions, critiques are welcome. Hope you enjoy!

    Love it! ( huge ancient world era fan ), What color did you use for the helmet and was it just that color and a outline because I have a 1/16 hoplite and I would love to make the armor stand out like that. Also was the fox fur dry brushed white or highlighted?

    Best regards, Mag~

    I agree with Jay, Brad. Your work gets better and better with each figure. Excellent painting my friend.

    Thanks all for your comments - Additionally:

    Hardy,Vergilus,Costas - Thank you. It was definitely more difficult than I have done before. I felt like I was back in my model building days. Paint,assemble,paint,assemble ect...

    Mag~ - The armour was tough but here is what I basically did. I actually airbrushed all armour before painting anything else. I used Testors plain cheap old 49cent leaf gold. This is the only spot I deviated from acrylics. Used washes of sepia, tried to outline with black and hit highlights with silver. The fox is drybrushed over a black base with varying light shades of gray than spot washed in areas with browns and reds. Hope this helps.

    Jay & Guy - Thanks for your words of encouragement. Are either one of you going to Atlanta? And, Jay, did you get the screwdriver back from the Tulsa show? I left it with someone that was suppose to return it to you, but I have a feeling you didn't get it back.

    Brad,
    You did an awesome paintjob on this difficult figure.
    Basework is well executed and sets of the figure.

    Hi Brad,

    Wonderful painting. I think you've handled the reds with great control and subtlety. From what I've heard this is not an easy kit to build and paint, so you have my compliments.

    Ana & Tony -- Thank you very much for your compliments.
