    Thanks guys.

    Forgot to mention a fun fact I stumbled upon while doing the research for this figure.
    As you may have noticed I painted the legion number 18 as XIIX.
    This is based on the following Wikipedia info:

    XIIX was used by officers of the XVIII Roman Legion to write their number.[32][33] The notation appears prominently on the cenotaph of their senior centurion Marcus Caelius (c. 45 BC – AD 9). On the publicly displayed official Roman calendars known as Fasti, XIIX is used for the 18 days to the next Kalends, and XXIIX for the 28 days in February. The latter can be seen on the sole extant pre-Julian calendar, the Fasti Antiates Maiores.[34]


    You learn something everyday...if you keep your eyes open!

    Cheers,
    Adrian
