Hello fan of Gladiator!

I started five months ago the making of armor that wore Maximus (Russell Crowe) in the excellent film Gladiator and It’s the Tigris version.

I use the eva foam for the armor and I use the resin for the ornements and the shoulder protector.

And I use a lot of dust to give it authenticity.

My armor is not finish but you can see the evolution of my work.

Thanks for looking!

That looks really nice! I tried a similar piece (generic Roman officer) a few years ago, but couldn't avoid the diamond plate texture slightly showing through on the front side. Yours looks very close to the screen version. I wish I could sculpt like that!

Thanks my friends for your good words about my work and armor. I don't have a lot of talent but I'm very patient and obsessive! Lol!

Love it, great job with the sculpting and molds. The paint job and weathering brings it all together beautifully.
