Finally completed the painting of the Μιλτιάδης (Battle of Marathon, 490 BC) from Medieval Forge Miniatures.
This figure is the fourth and final, in my project of a small diorama.
P.S. I decided to make bronze copis, not iron. Archaeological precedents seem to exist, and it seemed that it would look ... more harmonious or something.

    I like it a lot. The shield emblem is ancient-like black figure painting, nice details on the cuirass.  Gold.

    • Eugene Dravskikh

      Thank you for your opinion and appreciation! It was really hard to work with the shield. I had not done the effect of peeling paint before.

    very impressive painting. I love the shield of course, but I also like very much the white armor, with very nice contrast and very nice weathering. Great piece!!

    • Eugene Dravskikh

      Thank you very much for your positive opinion about my paintwork!
      “White armor” is essentially a material from glued linen. Linothorax. It was painted like fabric :)
