Gladiatrix training
« on: July 21, 2018, 02:55:01 PM »
I falled in love with the production of "El Viejo Dragon" from Spain. Those figures are very well sculpted and... sexy!
As for "l'emmerdeuse" I will try to paint the figures with oil paints; but first a coat of acrylic is better. I airbrushed Tamiya XF-15 Flesh on all the figures and have begun to paint details with other acrylic paints (Vallejo, Citadel Colors...)

First try with oil paint: one of gladiatrixes will be a Nubian  :))
I've just painted with oil paints the flesh. Quite happy with the result.

I'm not working as figure painters do, but I don't care for that: my goal is to have fun (and to represent nice boobs of course!).

The jar is also oil painted...

Always wonder how do you fix this cap to ground to avoid fly away under airbrush spray flow pressure?

Simple: the figure is fixed with metal parts. I drill the feey, place the metal part and this one is also fixed in the cap

The two other gladiatrixes received acrylic grey paint. Second photo shows the actual state of the four women. It remains lot of work but it's fun to do.
The accessories are oil painted; the base received a white primer.
