Marcomannic warrior, Pegaso Models 75mm

by Michael Rieß

Pegaso Models offers various white metal figures with excellent quality, and this figure is no exeption. Some filler was needed around the shoulders, but this is quite normal and no problem.

I painted the figure with acrylic paints from Revell and Lifecolor. Oil paints from Abteilung 502 were used for the shading.

The plants on the base are from Busch and Fredericus Rex.
I used MIG pigments to depict some mud on the base

The figure depicts a Marcomannic warrior during the Marcomannic wars (166-182 A.D.). He looted the corpses of some dead Romans, that´s why he carries a Roman Pugio dagger and a Roman helmet. Loot was usually sacrificed to the gods or used in battle again.
