Spanish Noble 75mm Romeo Models


Today I started painting this great figure sculped by Maurizio Bruno and boxart painted by Danillo Cartacci.

It depicts a XVII century spanish noble, and looking to the base, I would tell that he is in a tavern gambling and drinkin'...the result is that maybe someone cheated or the wine talked louder and there is some confusion.
That said I choosed to paint the face reddish like he was a little drunk and with a beard growned up, in order to give a sloppy feeling.

Roman Aquilifer I A.D. Pegaso 75mm


this is my current work... the figure is by pegaso models, 75mm scale, unnecessary saying that is an excellent figure. Yes, it my look simple, but is has some challenges. The first one was in the assembly process... It has to be very well though, in order to avoid glue pieces that will difficult the painting in some areas... I needed to make something I don't like very much: assembly key parts in the middle of the pain work. Despite that I am enjoying the figure.
It is the quickest figure I've done to this time, mostly because has large surfaces and once you start, easily cover a lot of the figure.
To the complete end I've still to paint all the leathers of the guy, shoes, purse, belts, the hand with the eagle staff, and part of the shield. The groundwork is also missing some paint in certain areas.


General view of the piece

Detail of the figure

Note: The idea is to represent the Teutoburg Forest, in Germany. Some things of the groundwork may not be exactly as they are in there but well, is a kind of tribute to the people who died there, both romans and germanic tribesman.

Thanks for looking, come again ;)



Standardbearer Of Charles D'anjou 75mm Pegaso


Behold the completed work of this great figure. I enjoyed very much to paint it! Really really nice figure!! Totally worth the money, and maybe more ahahah. I decided to do the painting equal to the art box cause is just amazing, and I'm very proud of the result.... despite I'm not even close to Danillo Cartacci... There were some new challenges in the painting process but I think I dealt with them well enough: the heraldry (banner, chest, shield), the helmet scarf diamond pattern...

So the figure represent, as the name says, the standarbearer of Charles of Anjou or Charles I of Naples (21 March 1226 – 7 January 1285). This fellow conquested Sicily, as well as had claims upon the kingdom of Jerusalem and participated in the Eight Crusade, along side with other conflicts....so I guess he knew what a good fight was.
He was the youngest son of Louis VIII King of France between 5 September 1187 – 8 November 1226, and Blanche of Castille.
He was the last guy in the line to the throne... Hey, why not conquest one!?!

I sell this figure or can make another by comission with costumer preferences all around, worlwide. The price it's on a post above. Contact by email: pedro_aveleira@hotmail.com.
