Arena Rex have been working on a new model for their gladiatorial combat game. This new warrior will turn you to stone as she stabs you with her deadly looking spear. See what you think of Medusa…
The artwork for this model was done by Yasmine Putri and the sculpting by Benoit Cauchies. She is a stunning piece and while a lot of the musculature has been taken out of the final sculpt she has retained a lot of her power.
“A sway of the hips, and a sibilant hiss in the wrong temple had this otherworldly beauty condemned by Athenian decree to eternally hide her face and was driven from the only home she had ever known, exiled by the Hellenic League for impiety.
Allowed to return for only ten days a year when the borders open for the Olympian games, she vents her rage and frustration in the arena, mocking Athenian wisdom and custom with every chance she gets.”
I particularly like how they’ve managed to get the veil looking so realistic on the model. It will be quite a challenge to paint that as something semi-transparent! Interestingly, and it could be something from mythology, but she appears to have stolen Athena’s shield with the owl on it!
As well as the artwork and model Arena Rex showed off some of the benefits for running three of the Gorgons in your games. While I can’t speak to their tactical uses myself I’m sure some players of the game will get some joy out of this!
