    Hello again friends,
    I left aside for a while the big Gettysburg diorama until I collect the necessary equipment for all these soldiers and I start building this 75mm figure which represents the legendary King Pyrros of Epeirοs (cousin of Alexander the Great).
    The excellent head is from Scale75.

    Thanks for the comments my friends,
    Ken, I am using several pictures mostly from the hellenistic period (Osprey books, wargaming books, real statues etc.).
    From that particular king we have only one bust from his era (see photo below) but a lot of info about his equipment, weapons and colors from historians.

    Thank you for the comments guys,
    Ken, I am using 3 kind of putties for different elements on the figure, Magic Sculp, A+B and Green Stuff (Duro), you can see each of them from the unique color each one have. I also do not use Duro without mixing it with Magic Sculp or A+B.
