Arena Rex – Hermes WIP

Started on the first miniature that caught my eye and one where I thought I could practice my metals and a bit of skin work before some of the more fleshy models.  Done the main bits of skin first and just adding the finishing touches to his helmet.  Next I will work down starting with the fur then the bandaging.  Not sure whether to do different metal types on him as the reference picture for gladiators vary as you will see below.

We will see anyway.  For now my latest progress is below.
