    Hello Guys. It has been a while since i have posted anything . The truth is that from June i was working on this project .

    [IMG]


    A scene from the battle of Cremona at 69 A.D. with 7 Roman figures

    [IMG]

    5 of them are Pegaso stock kits , and the rest 2 (dead, and Gladiator at Emperors service) are scratched - modified by me (so be gentle !)

    The painting is all in acrylics, with olis for leathers, and printers inks for metals

    The ground work is a Seil kit called Ruins, that was expanded, re arranged and modified for my needs .

    Dimensions are 24 wide x 19 depth x 25 height in cm's

    I just hope you like it as i invested lots of hours in this one .

    Before showing the pictures (that are not the best ones, due to some internal lighting damage i have at the lab ) i want to thank the following gentlemen for supporting the project

    Marco Guliani for his endless historical knowledge and willingness to help me

    Davide Deccina for supporting me morally

    Pietro Balloni for his advices and ...all kinds of help you can imagine

    and last but not least

    Luca Marchetti for supporting me in all kinds of things a real friend can do

    G'day Costas

    Well done mate, your time has been well spent. The painting is first class.

    Could you tell me the story behind this vignette? What is happening, who are these guys and what has just happened?

    Cheers

    Hi Tony . Is a scene from the battle of Cremona at 69 A.D. between three Roman emperors , to gain power. There all kinds of soldiers were used , like legionares, Praetorians, even Gladiators. After some Ancient bombing we have some ruins , a dead soldier, and a staff gathering for the next moves . Thats it

    Thanks for your time

    Hi Costas

    That is an incredible amount of work and very well done. I have all these figures myself with the same intensions in mind but just never got round to making a start.

    Very impressed:)

    Regards

    Dear Ilija , i am happy that you like it . 70 - 75 mm figures are the best for me because they offer detail in a good price. My wishes for a good result !!

    Dear Tommi hi and thanks . To be honest if i knew exactly the amount of work i was about to spend, i dont know if i would start again !!! But now that is finished i am more calm . All these figures are pieces of art so paint them even separate or in smaller vigniettes

    Costas,
    I think that the picture's brake down all your work. The light is so hard that the colors are not as they should be. So, no comments on that, i know your work.
    The base, well, as always awesome.
    Then, my critism (o, why, again???).
    I see just the romans looking: to what???? No interaction between them The dead man, well i don't know what he is doing there besides laying dead.
    So, that's my only critism. Sorry.....
