In my last Plog I promised I'd take some photos of my painted Roman Legionaries and I guess this is also an 'army' shot, though it's a very compact one at the minute:
Still not based them though, I'm still thinking exactly how I want to do it and I've got plenty to paint whilst I make up my mind anyway
There's a lot of 'silver' metal on these guys so I might sure to paint the cornu and standard using some bright golds. I've come to the conclusion over a number of years that when painting models it's best to exaggerate colours a tad so that they really pop on the table top.
I went with red skirts, there's nothing quite like the 'classical' look - this is what I grew up with in school
Speaking of Romans, there have been quite a number of questions and comments on some of the facebook groups I'm part of regarding transfers, particularly the Warlord Games transfers for the legionaries, well, this is my response:
My goal, whilst I'm off from work is to complete my first French line, with any luck and a few quiet hours that'll be my next post...see you in a few weeks!
