Hello Guys. It has been a while since i have posted anything . The truth is that from June i was working on this project .




A scene from the battle of Cremona at 69 A.D. with 7 Roman figures



5 of them are Pegaso stock kits , and the rest 2 (dead, and Gladiator at Emperors service) are scratched - modified by me (so be gentle !)

The painting is all in acrylics, with olis for leathers, and printers inks for metals

The ground work is a Seil kit called Ruins, that was expanded, re arranged and modified for my needs .
Dimensions are 24 wide x 19 depth x 25 height in cm's

I just hope you like it as i invested lots of hours in this one .

Before showing the pictures (that are not the best ones, due to some internal lighting damage i have at the lab ) i want to thank the following gentlemen for supporting the project

Marco Guliani for his endless historical knowledge and willingness to help me

Davide Deccina for supporting me morally

Pietro Balloni for his advices and ...all kinds of help you can imagine

and last but not least

Luca Marchetti for supporting me in all kinds of things a real friend can do

The Protagonists








The Scene














Thanks for beeing patient - feel free to shoot me !!!

Hi Costas,

Nice to see a vignette commemorating the Battle of Bedriacum. As always the figures are well painted and the groundwork looks great.

Keep well
