Livia, gladiatrix

Here is the finished mini! I've named her Livia, after Livia Drusilla, the wife of Augustus Caesar. Coincidentally, Xena's daughter is also named Livia - they nicked the character from the history books and stuck her in Sam Raimi's fantasy world ;-) I thought it a fitting name for this figure, as she was originally intended to be my Xena :-D

And now for the pics:


The shield design is a symbol of Apollo I found in an Osprey book about Greek Hoplites, and it's painted freehand:

And here she is fighting Oblivius in the arena!

Hope you like it! Comments welcome :-)
