This is the figure representing Governor Barbula which I've been working on recently. He's been dipped, varnished and based making him my first completely finished miniature! The detail on his face is incredible giving a very realistic look and feel. It really ranks up there with some of the better miniatures painted using the shading technique (I've used the Army Painter for this one). This is also my first attempt at a horse - it looks rather demonic - but it hasn't turned out too bad! I really like the base which looks very realistic. The sand at the front of the base looks like little stones but they are in fact grains of sand, painted brown then dry brushed with 3 shades of sand. The grass tufts are from Silfor. Let me know what you think and any questions will be answered asap (the picture is clickable too!).
I'm now back at University and I've taken my first 1000pt Roman army with me to paint up. There'll be more posts over the next few weeks showing the progression of the Romans and a few Greeks i'm working on and hopefully a few posts relating to the campaign too. Keep checking back for regular updates or 'follow' the blog!
