    Greetings everyone!

    I just finished this Mercury Models Roman Centurion in 75mm. A beautifully sculpted kit that I highly recommend!

    I followed the box art in general but I painted the shield just a bit different. I found on the internet a depiction of a shield of the XXI Rapax that I really liked and went with that. The XXI was destroyed while fighting on the lower Danube in 92.

    Thank you Tommi!

    I appreciate your comment on the shield. A bit scary at first, but I simply drew the pattern with a pencil and simply followed along with paint afterword. Wasn't too bad after all :D!

    Thanks Borek!

    The shield seems rather daunting at first, but once I got going it was a lot of fun!

    Hey Gary, I appreciate that very much.

    It bothers me having a box un-ticked:D!
