Gladiators 28mm first attempts

These Gladiators are from Foundry and my first crack at 28mm figures in a long time. Trying to do so much skin is proving a challenge and I haven't found a technique that I think nails it just yet. But these come out OK. I sprayed them with matt varnish then painted gloss varnish on shields, armour and helmets. My aim is to keep the colours of Red and Green. Two different team colours and colours that are complimentary opposites. Bottom line is that they are loud and they clash visually. Turns out Romans liked them bright, colourful and shiny. It's a lot different from 15mm WWII thatt is for sure.
