Roman Gladiator Vignette Part 6

Further progress on our gladiator vignette as I am now starting again on the second figure in the grouping. The first figure is darn near complete with more work being necessary on all the metallic bits. My greater focus will be on the flesh, leather and cloth of the Retarius. Stay tuned for more.


  1. Jim,

    Looks really nice. I love the shield work.


  2. Thanks Joe, it's getting there slow but sure. I've enjoyed these two figures so far and need to wrap my head around the second figure as I've spent so much energy on the first so far.

  3. Cool, looks pretty good. I also like the freehand on the shield a lot. The way you paint the metallic parts is quite natural and attractive. I`m looking forward to more pictures of the almost finished Gladiator :-)

  4. Hi Jim

    This project does remind me of a similar one I did a few years ago. I was a real joy for me then, and it looks as if you are enjoying it yourself too.

    I particularly like the protection of the right arm of the secutor.


  5. Thanks Johan, these figures do lend themselves to groupings. I did see your pairing as well. Very nice.
