One of the nice figures from the ancient era series of Pegaso. Offers a good subject that features a colorful figure in great details with a good posing and a realistic figure base. The Briton Warrior is standing on the mortal remains of a Roman centurion showing proudly a silver “phalerae” on his breast, the merits of his enemy.
The figure comes in standard Pegaso Models Elite Series blue cardboard box. The front cover shows the figure painted by Emiliano Iacobacci
& Pietro Balloni
from 3 different angles.
Inside the box, there are 2 paper sheets including a short historical info about our Briton Warrior and painting tips for this figure. This document is prepared by Marco Giuliani
and presented in 4 languages; English, Italian, French and German.
Parts are well protected between two slabs of thick gray polyfoam.
The figure is sculpted by Gianni La Rocca
and made up of 9 white metal parts. All parts are cast clean and crisp with good details. No serious cleaning, sanding or filling is required. Mounds and holes on the pieces help you for an easy and perfect fit.
Main part is the torso with legs. On this main piece over the fur waistcoat there is a phalerae
and both are very well detailed. Under the waistcoat the Briton wears a chainmail of which sleeves are well detailed together with his cloak, as the second big part of the kit. A dry fit try shows that these two main parts are getting together perfectly, without resulting any gasps to fill.
Other parts are;
The bald head of the figure with his long beard and hair is a very realistic piece. Represents a very proud and experimented warrior’s face at first glance.
Left arm and the shield are casted together. The shield has a butterfly shaped plate on it. The metal strengthenings of the shield are clearly casted.
Right arm has a hole for fixing the hand which is casted together with the battle axe. The opposite side is ending in a mound shape to be fixed in its place on the figure.
Sword in its scabbard is very well casted. Handle and pommel have the classical details of the era.
The dagger is very well detailed.
The base is casted together with helmet, cloak, gladius, and a dagger of the enemy soldier. The margins of the base are nicely decorated and this gives a option to present the figure nicely without a wooden base.
High quality casting, easy to assemble and well detailed pieces of a well posed figure. It is a nice figure to paint with different possibilities of choosing the colors for well detailed dressing.
