Roman General, Germania 180 A.D.

This is my attempt at making Maximus from "Gladiator" but I didn't want to call him that since he isn't an exact copy. Some of the things about his uniform are different because of either my skill level wasn't up to the task or parts were just not available or too expensive.

Anyway, here he is. Hot Toys head, repainted with acrylics and pastels, Hot Toys body, Ignite helmet (with red feathers chopped off and Barbie hair added for plume), Ignite chest piece, repainted, Beanie Baby pelt, weathered, Sideshow boots and GI Joe leg guards, chopped and repainted, and other leather bits and pieces from Michaels. His knees have my now usual liquid latex covering, to conceal his exposed knee joints, repainted.

Comments/criticism always welcome. Thanks for looking!

That is some superb work! And I think you SHOULD go ahead and call him Maximus.

Very nice figure there, which, as it's HT, it should be for the money one pays.

CHEERS!
