Progress has slowed considerably of late as I'm now back to work. I painted the Phalangites during the week and the Roman Consul yesterday.
The Consul is inspired by a scene in the 1960, Stanley Kubrick movie "Spartacus". Anyone who has seen the movie will remember the scene where we first meet Laurence Olivier as Crassus, when he enters the Ludus of Batiatus played by Peter Ustinov. Dressed in white armour on a magnificent white charger, Larry does a lap of the court yard, if ever anyone needs to make an entrance they should take a look at that scene.
The Phalangites are from the second Tarentine Phalanx, which is going to be slightly larger than the other two with 24 Phalangites.
That's it for now.
