Some new Roman Legionaries and other...

Posted by Phersu on 19 Apr 2018, 18:57

It was quite long since I posted something new... so many figures to sculpt, despite all my efforths I'm always late on schedule (I have "just" two hands! :eh: )... and never enough time for all the rest!

Besides, I took some photos while doing one of the last works, like a step to step sculpting WIP of some new 1/72 Roman Legionaries... which maybe can be also interesting as tutorial.

1 - fix legs articulation joints (with superglie and epoxy putty)
2 - sculpting sandals
3 - trousers
4 - skirt
5 - chaimail skirt and fix torso position
6 - fix shoulders articulation joints
7-8-9 - top chaimail and belt
10 - fix elbow articulations joints
11 - sword and knife on belt
12-13 - suoulders pads, wrist joints, gripping hand, scabbard belt.

14 - face, shoulders pads and helmet cap
15 - hair and face
16 - face and helmet cap
17 - helmet details
18-19 final undercoat color
20 - dark wash and the figures completed


Recently I had to do a young boy, Kalulu, the adopted son of Stanley... Doctor Livingstone, I presume! ;-)
It's a very nice subject that I really enjoted to sculpt, I made it for Ad proelium, a new production of a friend of mine.



Since I needed a small body for Kalulu figure, I took the occasion to make a new mannequin to sculpt figures of that size too! ;-)
It was the occasion to make also a little curious nice thingy... Massimo told me it reminds some kind of robocop! :xd: :affraid:


Another figure i recently made is Camilla, the Volscan Warrior Queen from the Aeneid... a bit "naughty", but the "Italic Amazon" is described from Virgil as covered only with a tiger fur! :winky:

Nice info all around.

I prefer the Kalulu set most.
And the the different pose of the roman troops are very well done too.
Unusual is the "robocob".

Poor little riding girl. You have avoid to give her a red, lipstick.
And she get the advantage as the only one in color !
