Hmm, are you sure one of them is trajan? Those look like the same statue of Octavian to me 1 in bronze and 1 in marble, even down to the characters on the breast plate and the folds of the robe. I think the biggest difference is that the bronze doesn't have the "load bearing" cherub.

After some searching, i can say that you are right.
This is Augustus.

While THIS is Trajan. i honestly always thought that the guy above was Augustus too . go figure
When i return to Rome i'll go to that Trajan Statue and leave there an ultramarine as penance for my sinful ignorance.

Bwa haha! No worries man.

I'm glad it's settled otherwise we would totally derail this thread with an exploration of Roman statuary.

To bring it back on topic I want to challenge you @thebuilder to build a ruined basilica next time, not just a platform and columns but ruined vaults and partial domes!

your debate is welcome. But yes, Augustus looks pretty great. Maybe I'll get Trajan as his mate one day...

As the weekend approaches, it's time for finishing touches... mostly on tanks!

Is that word bearers brass etch daemon head on the land raider doors?

The tutorial will be finished by the weekend I think, I've got a Red Scorpion commission on at the moment, and they'll form the final part of it.

As for some pics, we've got something from R's desk, he's done two Vultures as a commission, and they're stunning.

I finished a Red Scorpion commission today. I had great fun doing these, was left with a very open brief (must have plasma cannon, must have power sword serg with bare head and helmet on belt)
