Daturazi 2.0: Sulla

No more pony tails... mind blown.
I finally finished the last Daturazi today.

Despite his silly pose- holding his rifle one handed- he is a good sculpt with plenty of detailing.

Charontid HMG: Harbringer

I am the vanguard of your destruction.
The Charontid is a heavy infantry model that comes with the very useful MSV Level 3.  This makes him ideal for hunting camoflauge markers and ODD troops that have been the bane of my existence since I picked up the Morat Sectorial.

Like the Skiavoros- he is cursed with glowing muscles- making him laborious to paint.  However, once completed- he doesn't look too bad.

Skiavoros: Sovereign

Plasma rifle.
I've started experimenting with the Combined Army and the Skiavoros was the first miniature I painted.  The challenge in the painting is in keeping a unified palette on such varied models.

This model I'll use as my Lieutenant.  With a plasma rifle and Ghost Mnemonica- he is an expendable Lieutenant who can take the fight to the enemy.

Daturazi 2.0: Virtus

Training that functional fitness- since yesterday.
My latest finished model- Virtus.

"Virtus" means "manly character" and was one of the most important traits a Roman man could have.  And considering that Virtus has as much free testosterone as a thousand weight lifters in the local gym, the name is quite apt.

A faction that sees itself as imperium sine fine- an empire without end- they must prize the masculine ethos highly.

Daturazi 2.0: Ischomachus

I pottered away on this guy over the course of a week- thinking he'd be a little bit easier since he isn't carrying a fire arm.  In fact, it just allowed me to distract myself even more with pointless internet browsing.  Next time I paint- I'll have to command that time and force myself to paint solidly instead of foolishly responding to click bait.

Ischomachus is an individual mentioned in Xenophon's ancient text "The Economist".  And whilst being a man of wisdom, he's also been on that bulk time too!

Daturazi 2.0: Aristophanes

Snap City?  I'm from Muscleville!!!
I've had this box of Daturazi sitting on my desk for months now and not been motivated to paint at all.  But after hearing about the new improved shotgun rules I decided to get some shotgun toting models ready for N3.
