My attempts at clearing (some) of my ever-increasing backlog of unfinished swag continues with the completion of warlord's 28 mm Roman general based on Ridley Scott's Maximus from the epic film, Gladiator.
(Warning: Poor photography ahead) I quite like the model's sculpt which has nice, crisp detail generally, although the rear of his cloak is a little flat and lacking definition. The model's nose, too had become flattened during transit, despite its robust blister pack, so I had to improvise with a tiny blob of PVA glue, which, once dried, sufficed suitably.
I based both Maximus and his trusty hound individually, but made this scratch-built stand from which they can survey developments in Germania.
I went for the closest match I could to the film for the colours of his kit, rather than go for my own version; not very original I know, but hey-ho.
Well, there he is, ready to stick it to the Goths, now what else do I have lying around still to be painted? Oh, yeah...tons :D
That's it for now,
