    Very nice flesh tones indeed, and a great start. Not that I'm very knowledgable on this era, but the checkered pants are a bit different, I like them.

    Very nice start Nando. The check trousers do seem rather unusual, but they certainly are eye catching.

    Very nice start to this one and the face has been done very well, looking forward to seeing more of this figure.
    Interesting choice for the pants, did he take them from a dead Gaul ?

    Hi everybody! :)
    Thank you for comments. I knew that the trouser idea would have differents opinions about hehe Steve my idea is he has taken the trouser of a Briton or from a "german barbarian", and i didnt want the clasic small check, colours are cold because enviroment will be in winter with snow, but i have to be careful with purple tone(may be i change it for a darker purple). Anyway i hope to show news in 2 days :)
    Cheers,
    Nando.

    i really like the idea that he has taken the trousers from a dead enemy which gives you a unique colour option for this figure, great idea.

    Hi Nando,
    Very good start, I like the face and the effect of leather armor.

    Wow those large checks on the pants. . .

    Wow, you're off to a great start. And I for one am very impressed with your
    color choices of grey and violet in those big checks for the pants. And
    rendering those two blocks of color in that soft shade says a lot about your
    ability as a painter.

    To me these choices go so well with the base color of the browns.
    I'm eager to see this piece come to fruition. (y)(y)(y)

    Thanks everybody for comment :)
    here you have a small progress. I have completed the check trouser pattern, but trouser looks new yet so it needs get dirty hehe. I have painted the foundation around face but without shades and lights.
    Sorry again for my english.
    Cheers,
    Nando.
