Just published, a review of El Viejo Dragón Miniaturas’ 'Roman Tribune, Lake Trasimene, 217BC’ - another unique, well sculpted, good value for money figure from EVD.

Definitely a good action pose and its a nice change from the more often seen static poses and looks like they were pretty generous with the base too. Its just me but it would have pushed the dramatic pose further if the left hand was away from the body to counterbalance the sword arm.

Hey Beach,

I think this guys is wounded on the belly, according to the painting... blood stain found on the lether straps where the left hand holds the wound.

Hey CK,

Long time no see!

You asked about the counterbalance.... yup it would make sense, but CP got it right...

He clutches a wound to his left flank, while wielding a Greek style sword

(per the review)

I must say again, I'm impressed with EVD... nice quality at a good price, and their subjects generally are either quite unique or have unique poses etc. And quite an interesting range as well.

HTH, and thanks for reading

Interesting fig and a good review. I've just finished reading Pride of Carthage so it's cool to see a fig from that war.

Hey David,

Thanks for the kind comments. If you liked this figure and Republican history, you'll be glad to know that I'll have reviews of a Carthaginian as well as a figure from the Sertorian wars up within the next week ot so

Ooops...sorry Rudi. Thanks for the correction CP. This is what comes of 'reading' without really reading and painting too many small scale figs.
