Okay, the last two Gladiator models before I move onto shields and bases.
A Murmillo and a Velite.
Murmillos were the staple heavy Gladiator of the Romans and were a fan favorite. Murmillo is some derivative of the term fish, perhaps because of the large crest they typically wore on their helmets. However, the exact meaning/nature of the name is unclear.
Velites were lightly equipped Gladiators who used javelins in the arena. Frequently, they were used in the Venatorii (beast hunts) as opposed to fighting other Gladiators.
Next up, I want to do shields and such and then move onto my Equites and Essadarius (Chariots). However, I have never really painted horses before, so I am open to any suggestions or tutorials that you guys recommend.
