Arena Rex: Ludus Magnus ‘Micon’

Well I finally started painting my Arena Rex models that I had purchased at this years GenCon 10 days ago.  Along with a few other models for Arena Rex, I had purchased 2 Starter Sets, Ludus Magnus and Legio XIII.  Ludus Magnus was for me and Legio XIII is for my son.

Once I start priming and painting a model, I do not want to play with that model until it is fully completed, hence why I try and paint my models pretty quickly, so I usually pick a guy that looks pretty easy to start with (to get me motivated in painting the other models) and I go from there.  I wanted to make sure I could get a few models completed before my son and I play again.

The first model up for my Ludus Magus is the big guy called ‘Micon’.  When I looked at this model, I saw a lot of skin, then just a few spots of armor.  I thought this would be a good one to start with and I could get him completed pretty quickly.



As with the bases I painted for my Spikes Terrain, I am very happy with how the color of my sand is coming out.  This is more just for a reference for me in case I forget years from now, but the base is done with 2 coats of P3 Rucksack Tan, then drybrush Vallejo Iraqui Sand, light drybrush of Vallejo Pale Sand and finally the ring is done with P3 Thamar Black.
