Nice figure... nice review

You can almost see him standing on the edge of the Danube or atop a rocky hill watching the Roman Legions approach...

Thanks Engin

Thanks for the very detailed review Engin.

I like this fig especially the scale armor but I have a question on the hand holding the shield. From the finished pic it seems that his finger don't grasp the shield well especially the thumb. Is it because of the lack of shadows from the painting or just the viewing angle?

Hi CK,
I checked the photos and it really looks like the hand doesnt grasp the shield well in the boxart photos.I think this is due to the built of the boxart figure because I checked the left hand of the figure again last night and there is a quite good groove to pose the hand as grasping the shield.
best regards

Thanks Engin for checking it out. Much appreciated. This chap will be going on my list. I have 2 more Pegaso figs from Gianni La Rocca and I like his work.
