Retiarius

Another Crusader gladiator, this time a retiarius.  I didn’t like that big head he had very much, too big comparing it to other models in the same set. So I decided to make a very easy and fast conversion, just make two holes for the eyes and paint it as if it were a mask/helmet. That way it isn't just a "retiarius with a big head".

That's a very clever idea. Too late for my very own retiarius, but let's assume he's just a pighead. ;-)

They're coming along nicely, really looking forward to the rest of the packs.

Cheers, SG

Another trump, I'm starting to think that I need some gladiator miniatures now!

Man... that's clever, because it's so simple. Never would have thought of that. And the paint job's brilliant as always.

Another superb painted figure. You are on a roll. Great idea with head armour.

Thanks!!

I have got some more gladiators on the painting queue. I'm enjoying this project!! They are for my own collection.

Cheers.
