I did both of these up for a Fellow Aurora collector Dave Schafer aka wresman on the Aurora board some of you probably know who he is as he has a huge Aurora collection.I would have taken the pics and posted them here when they were completed.But didnt want to until he recieved them and everything was Good:thumbsup:.So here they are complete and with their owner who cant thank me enough for building them up for him:).Both like all my buidups are done by hand brushes and pastels for shading.

You've really got the pastel shading technique down pat!
You're a lucky guy to be able to build all these fantastic Aurora kits... I'm jealous....

I've got both Bloodthirsty Pirates Dan, and you're gonna have an absolute blast with 'em!! They're 2 of Auroras best IMHO.
I just wish I had somewhere to finish mine...:cry:

You did a great paint job on them,but if Gladiators were ever to be issued again,better sculpts by the kit manufacturer would be welcomed.You can do only so much with the Aurora figures,no matter how skillful a modeler you are.:)

Thanks for commenting and agree with you as no matter what level of a painter or builder you are there is only so much you can do with the Aurora kits in getting them to look lifelike.So lets hope Moebuis trys its hands at figure kits like the Gladiators cause you can bet they will sell specially if the kit design is far better than the Aurora ones.:)
