    This a very beautiful figure sculpted by the talented Signor Gianni La Rocca and researched by Marco Giuliani and Michael Gohl.
    The figure is a 90mm. Roman Gladiator "Thraex".

    After a long break from painting, I finally decided to start this figure.
    I painted the Galea " broad brimmed helmet crested with a gryphon head" , and the Ocrea "bronze carved greaves".
    They still need extreme shadows and highlights.
