Nice work Peter... pity that sword is bent, but I don't see it as your fault.

Lovely job Peter. You've really nailed the face and the chain mail!

Hello Peter, I also like the way you painted the knight. Only thing I could mention: Perhaps you can highlight some part of the white with pure white color. But this is not necessary.

Hi Peter, this is one of my favorites from the set. Nice pose and I really like the white color you achieved. I agree with Santi about the sword. Unless you replace its tough to straighten. I found that extremely frustrating. Great job.

A Bent Sword! This guys been in some heavy Duty Fighting ,and he`s all on his own. He looks Good,but how long can he hold out Against Overwhelming Odds? So best bring the rest on too Peter. Nice Work! BB

These are plastic figures so why not place figure partly in boiling water,and quickly straighten the bent piece when you take it out. I straighten lots of figures this way. BB

I don't know if this would help for the sword. I will give it a try when I start painting the next ones!

I don't think boiling water will help the sword. It can bend the rest of the figure instead. There are metallic swords than be used as replacement. Ah, and I don't think boiling beer will help either. Better to drink the beer cold! Just a little advice.

Great job with the texture of the mail and jupon. That is one thing I like about Caesar figures. I have the dismounted knights sets on order.

I've painted another figure as a test. This time a Roman from the Esci 224 Roman Legion set.

Hope you like him?

PS: Changed the title of the topic in "Test painted figures". More figures will follow! ;-)

That is the first 1/72 set I ever bought. It is lost now but I bought Italeri reissue.
Amazing work Peter :shock:
