A slight modification of the Spartan resin bust of the Pegaso range http://www.pegasomodels.com/image_view.asp?id=874&img=1 into Athenian general of the 5th c BC. His rich gear, certainly was not in use by any Spartan military personel. Thus, a simple rotation of the plume and a half building the wooden stand of it, the figure changed on the realistic appearance and transformed into a rich Athenian officer. Because of his proud attitude and pose, I imagined Cimon, Miltiades' victor of Marathon son , as the head of the Greek campaign against the Persians and especially at the battle of Eurymedon river of Ionia, at 468 BC (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cimon) . Another possible and more-impressive-bit variant is the bonding of the helmet in open position. The face has a wild and aggressive appearance. In this case some sculpting contribution is nesessary in the nose and cheeks, because are the points covered pressed and deformed by the helmet. The figure is not complete; some corrections (mainly highlights), the leather components of thorax, the decoration of plume stand and highlights and shadows in the plume.The painting was atistic oils on acrylic substrate. Against annoying satin finish of the oils, my ally is now the spray varnish, Flat of " Mr. Super Clear ". Any criticism and comment, as always welcome.
