Came across this beauty on El Greco's website yesterday.
Wow, placed an order immediately.
Hi Malc....first seen on putty and paint a few weeks ago.........then el greco sent me an email from my wish list...hopefully on its way....fill yer boots. . Mike
like you, can't wait for it to arrive.
Thanks for sharing this duo ...certainly so much action in it ...be interested to see how is cast up and goes together
Possibly not my thing but the sculpting and artwork looks excellent
Ordered mine Direct from Pegaso and when their lockdown ended it arrived in a week. Absolutely fantastic casting with bags full of parts. A real work of art and a painters dream.
Great service there from Pegaso
Would love to see a review on this
Look forward to seeing yours being painted
Superb piece of sculpting and painting.
And fairly reasonable price for what you get
Is it me but they just dont strike me as mortal enemies in that setting?
This has been for sale on Pegaso’s website for like a month. I can’t understand why some companies can’t take the few minutes it takes to post a new release here on PF. I’m sure a lot of you are like me and tend to buy what we see here.
Agree there it would be great for Pegaso to share releases
Thanks to Malc and all others that post releases
The idea is excellent - but there are many faults with this - the Roman still has his gladius in the scabbard (if I'm being attacked I think i'd be reaching for my sword to fight back with all of my strength) - secondly and following on from that the standard bearer isn't struggling the German has no knife to his throat or his side - he is a trained and disciplined Roman soldier who is not going to surrender lightly - the scene is just not real - looks more like they are dance partners.
As I said I like the concept and few changes it would be an epic scene - so buy it and do some work on it - perfect.
There is the possibility the Roman could've been taken by surprise, thus the gladius still in the scabbard. Just a thought.
It's a very dramatic piece and I like regardless of any faults.This is going to be a very popular piece and I think we'll see many gracing the tables at the shows.
I was very surprised too, which is why I checked with Nap first before posting in case I'd missed it.
I'm very pleased El Greco brought this piece to my attention.
Yes, I agree with you - I don't dislike it all - having visited the Teutoberg Forest and the site of the ambush - it appeals even more - But.....
The Roman has both hands free as he is trying to remove the arm around his throat.... OK enough is a enough.
True but it is a miniature and would not be complete without the Aquila in the other hand.
Mine arrived today, great service from El Greco.
All I can say is Wow.
