Arbelas

El Arbelas (también conocido como Scissor) es uno de los tipos de gladiadores mejor protegidos para poder compensar la ausencia de escudo. Su oponente habitual es otro Arbelas o un Retiarius, de manera que su yelmo es bastante similar al de los Secutores (para evitar que se enganche la red). Se les reconoce fácilmente por el arma poco usual que portan en la mano izquierda, una pieza de armadura que cubre el antebrazo y acaba en una cuchilla con forma de luna creciente.

La miniatura es del blister ANG002 - Secutores & Scissor (Crusader Miniatures).

Estoy contento con el resultado. Una miniatura muy sencilla de pintar (poca carne), a la que he conseguido darle el tono oscuro que quería. La verdad es que impone... :-)

The Arbelas (also known as Scissor) is one of the gladiator types with best protection, in order to compensate the absence of shield. His opponent is another Arbelas or a Retiarius, so his helmet is quite similar to Secutor´s (to avoid snagging the net). They are easily recognized because of the unusual weapon they carried in their left hand, a piece of armor that covers the forearm and ends in a blade crescent-shaped.

The model is
ANG002 - Secutores & Scissor (Crusader Miniatures).

I'm happy with the result. A simple miniature painting (not many flesh), which I managed to give the dark look I wanted. The truth is he commands respect... :-)


Nos vemos!

  1. Another fine addition to your gladiatorial collection. I think this Scissors guy is really a mean looking character. Regards, Dean
