And after giving him a final once over for touch-ups (including finally painting all his armor rivets), Micon was ready to be based. You can check my basing technique in my first Arena Rex painting article. And now, more pics.
Of course I also painted some of Micon’s buddies recently. So here are Urbicus and Noxi.
Noxi is a slave condemned to die in the arena.Something about him looked Germanic to me so I decided he must be a prisoner of war from somewhere up North – where the sun isn’t quite so bright as it is in Rome. For his pale skin I used a 1-1 mix of Ryn Flesh and Frostbite Highlighted with Menoth White Highlight and Shaded with Beast Hide. Navy Mix was used anywhere I needed particularly dark highlights.
And last up is Urbicus. The techniques for his armor are mostly the same as Micon. The patina on his shield is added with a mix of Meridius Blue and Menoth White Highlight. For his very bronzed skin I used a basecoat of Bootstrap Leather highlighted with Rucksack Tan and Menoth White Highlight, and shaded – once again – with the Navy Mix.
