Relic's Antiochus - Painted
Being a king, the color selection was mainly purple - actually various shades using different mixtures of red and blue. The sculpting is really impressive. For instance the horse barding has multiple faces on it; all excellently done. On the horse's head plate there is a human face (Antiochus' ?) and also a leopard's below it.
Mike from Relic had cautioned me that there would be a gap between the horse and rider. I didn't really notice it on the trial fit before they were painted. However, after painting there was a substantial gab - mainly on the right side. I'll fill it up with putty - right now the two pieces aren't glued together yet.
