54mm Gladiators: Retiarius 2
Here's my second (heavily converted) retiarius. He's got enough tattoos, so we'll call him Woadicus.
Woadicus's trident took two tries to get right; but the net came out on the first try. As I mentioned earlier, this figure uses the same base model as the dimachaerus. I've kept the original head for the retirarius version of this model, which was slightly awkward to paint because prominent eyebrows have been sculpted on the figure.
All-in-all, I'm happy with Woadicus, the painting, the sculpting of the armor on his left arm, and especially the pose with that flying net.
