I finished painting the gladiators this evening, most of the effort going into tidying up the details and attaching the painted shields. I coated them in GW satin 'ardcoat followed by a matt coat of Army Painter varnish but the latter dulled the metallics, so I oversprayed again in the satin varnish to pull up the colours.
They won't win any prizes but they're good enough for a bit of rough and tumble in the arena. I could tart up the shields a bit more but I think it's more important to sort out the texturing on the bases, so that I can crack ahead with the next batch of figures including the now based and undercoated bear, lion and puma.
