    Hi Guys,

    Some progress pics of this project bubbling along in the background! Ive never tackled a Roman before, so I thought Id have a go on this one. Straight from the box apart from the trousers added in Milliput and some minor adjustments to the pose of the wrists.

    Ive still got a long way to go with painting, this is the initial shading/colours, with washes and glazes to be be added. Im still not happy with the armour, still looks a bit grainy, so far. All done in acrylics.

    Thanks for looking,

    Looking good, I have seen a few miniart figures painted now and they look rather nice.

    Cheers Bob - with a little work, not beyond the grasp of the average modeller, they can be fun to do - the best bit is they're relatively cheap to practice on, too!(y)

    It's not a bad figure OOB but the trousers are a lovely touch.

    Turned out nicely mate, the mini-art 1/16 figures are not too bad to be honest, with a little work they can be very good figures like you have shown.
