    Hi guys,

    I started work on this lovely 75mm figure from Pegaso a couple of weeks ago but held off until now to show you my WIP pics.

    Photos taken on my iPhone aren't the best, but they'll give you some idea of what's happening.

    Spent a couple of nights working on the lion skin, trying to get the range of colours correct.

    I'm currently painting the shield design and the vexillum. Having fun researching the standard designs used by the various legions.

    Hope you like the pics so far. I'll have some more to show you soon. Please feel free to share your comments/ feedback.

    Nice work so far Tony.
    Maybe a very small pupil into the eyes. The iris looks so big now.

    G'day Tony, nice work on another Roman to add to the cohort. I like the pelt except for the whisker folicle spots or whatever you call them on the lions head muzzle.I reckon they're far to prominent and out of scale.
    But it seems to be heading towards another great job(y) ............and get a bloody camera the Iphone just doesn't cut it.:meh: When I saw Ben's pix of your figures from this years Wasmex, it was as though I was seeing them for the first time they looked so much better than the images I had seen before on the forum.......cheers.

    Hi guys, thanks for your comments and suggestions. I'll be working on the eyes and the whisker folicle spots as suggested.

    Mark, thanks for your comments mate. (y)

    I've added the gladius, dagger and shield to the figure now and its strating to come together. Thanks to Tommi's awesome stencils, I'm pretty happy with the way the shield design came out. Still a lot of work to be done on the shield.

    Hi Tony, looking good all round as usual, shield design has worked out a treat. What colours have you used to paint the lion fur? Looks very effective and I am about to start one myself.
    Cheers

    Thanks guys, I really do value and appreciate your comments.

    Tommi, the lion fur skin is painted with a combination of Vallejo Gold Brown, Beige, Buff, Ivory, Orange Brown and Burnt Umber, with a Sepia Shade wash and deepest shadows with a Black wash. The underside of the pelt is painted buff and highlighted with Ivory and wasked with Sepia.

    Cheers Ken,

    I went mad last night and painted leg hairs on a 75mm figure:wtf:

    I've also added two vertical stripes, known as clavii, to signify this Vexillifer as a senior officer. he looks properly Roman now!

    These pics probably don't look hugely different from the last set, but I've done a lot of "tuning" of the fine details. Highlights here, shadows added there.

    The next step is to paint the design on the vexillum. I've attached a photo of a reproduction to show you roughly what it will look like. My version will have a couple of slight variations. :cautious:
