Apocalator: Heavy fighter
Here's another fighter all painted up. This might be one of my favorites, though, I'm not quite sure what the special appeal is about this gladiator.
I like the large shield with a big boss bolted on. I like the worn, peeling blue color on the shield complimented with the yellow cloth of his loincloth and havelock. I like the combo of rubber shinguard and patch of chainmail protecting his leg. The skin tone turned out nice (Foundry's Bay Brown, again - and it looks much better in person than in this pic). This guy, I think, looks like he belongs in the arenas of the post-apoc future. Ok, for all those reasons, I prefer this figure over the others.
Just a couple more figures to go, then I'll probably go back to playing a bunch of Red Sand Black Moon/Brown Sky.
