    Hello.
    This time I'd like to present one of my elder works. The oldest one, actually:). This is my first historical mini. I'd been painting fantasy miniatures before this one for many years, but for me it's still the beginning :)

    You can judge my progress during tihs years (if there is any:D)
    Pictures were taken late at night, so they lacking a bit quality. I'll change them, if I have time.
    I'm not being excessive modest;), but I like the shield, it's my first real freehand.
    I hope you like it.

    The design of the shield is wonderful in particular.
    I think it built into a game soldier.
    Very cool.
    I congratulate completion.

    And they're proper Roman-style dolphins too!

    Aleksandros, Babis, Marc, Gordy, Mitsutaka, Harry, Ken - thank you guys for nice comments.
    Dolphins are proper design in fact. As far as I know, this was one of designs used by roman naval (marine) troops.
    The waeathering is rather heavy, but that was my intention - to represent an extremally tired, frightend soldier during a touhg fight, which is probably lost.

    I'm really glad you like it.

    Hi Somin,

    Very nice job.
    I always wanted to make this figure (I like his facial expression as he were saying "come and get me if you dare"). Does the figure is clean, is there a lot of seam lines, does the fitting went well etc.. ?
    Apart from that I really like the splashes you made. How did you acheive that, is it acrylic ?
    Best,
    Julien

    Thank for your comment Julien.

    I painted this model about two years ago, so actually I don't remember much:confused:. I belive it means there were no serious problems. The only thing I remember is a seam line across the front part of helemet. Removing it caused damage to the pattern on helmet's edge.

    Besides, my figure was made by EMI. Now it's sell by Masterclass Miniatures (Deja Vu brand), so I know nothing about it's quality.

    Splashes were made with use of diluted acrylic paints ("blood" splashes) and various Andrea's pigments. The technique is very simple - dip a big brush in a liquid (paint or pigment), bend the bristle, then release it.
    Then enjoy splashes all over the mini and your working place (including walls):D

    Simon
