Soldiers SR-25 Completed
Soldiers SR-25 is completed. This figure is a "portrait" piece of Marcus Favonius Facilis, a Centurion in Legio XX Valeria Victrix, 1st century A.D. Sculpted by Adriano Larrucia in 54mm, the figure depicts a haughty, strong and deservedly arrogant leader of men as he marches down a dirt road somewhere in the Empire. Much of the research that goes into these figures is based on graves and monument sculptures found throughout the Empire. I continue to find this period of history fascinating and to provide endless opportunities for study and figure painting. Thanks to Marco and Adriano as well as others for providing such great miniatures to tackle. Enjoy!
