    The reason I've been a bit quiet. Pegaso's 75mm Decurio Equitum.
    The shield design I based on a 3rd century shield found at Dura Europus in Sryria.
    Painted in a mix of Vallejo, Jo Sonja and Matisse acrylics. For the metals, the bronze/golds were done with Darkstar Miniatures Molten metal paints. And the iron/steel, done with Scale 75's Metal N' Alchemy set.
    The Roman coins on the base are replicas.

    Thanks Kev.
    The shield was done over a weekend. I used a size 1 rigger to get the basic shape. Then went back with a 10/0 brush to enhance the detail

    Nice job, I really like the metal parts! How did you made face mask?Epoxy sculpt? On the box art the figure has a open helmet!

    G'day Roland. The face mask is part of the kit, and to the best of my recollection I may be the first person to actually use it. It's a bit of a fiddly fit, but really adds to the finished kit.
