Something New 2 - Pegaso 75mm Roman Officer of the Equites

This figure was started over the winter. As you can tell I really have a thing about Roman subject matter. There has been some debate over the accuracy of this figure as a whole on the MedRom forum and although I agree with their observations I love the figure and couldn't pass up an opportunity to tackle all the little fiddly details. Although I am technically finished with this piece I may still add some decorative details to the cloak's edge as well as playing with the sheen of the leather pteruges and flattening the cloak's finish once I have done the edging (or not). You will note that I didn't use non-metallic paint techniques on this figure's armor. I usually use the metal of the kit with various colored washes for steel and gold printer's inks mixed with oil colors for bronze/brass in this scale or larger. I just like the look better that way on larger scale work.

  1. The figures look good Jim. I'd go ahead and add some decorative edging to the cloak. It would help compliment the decorative nature of his armor. ~Gary
