    Hello!
    Guys, I want to show you my new work in progress. It is a Spartan Officer bust from Athens Miniatures. Sculpted by great artist Costas Kariotellis.
    Face and hair are done in 99%. Helmet is almost ready, but I have to put gloss coat on it. More pics soon.

    Artur,

    Excellent work, especially the colour of the helmet. Great application of the non-metalic metalics!

    I like very much the painting but seen the figure from the side it looks a bit skinny for a spartan.
    Great painting however

    Dear Roberto hi . Icould help out regarding the skinny look of the Spartan, saying that ,the life code of Spartans was really strict and precise.Regarding , dressing, behaviour, family , and also food.

    If you can imagine them throwing away the kids with birth problems, i guess is not difficult to realise that they would not add an extra kilo on them . Dont be influenced by the body builders look of the guys at the "300" movie. Spartans were most possibly on the skinny side , but well trained and with perfect physical condition.

    This is also one of the best busts that are on the market , as much as sculpting , and casting of course

    Ciao
