    This is a Republican Roman Centurian,who lost his head to an angry Celt.
    Just kidding.

    I've had this figure sitting on my work bench for some time, I finally decided to finish him.

    1- a) Brushed the armor with a swuede brush.

    Burnished the armor 000 steel wool.

    c} Washed it with warm water and Ivory dishwashing detergent,make sure you
    you rinse well.

    d} gave the the armor numerous controlled washes of Ivory black mixed
    with turps.

    e} When dry I burnished the extreme highlight points with the end of a knitting
    needle.
    f} weathered the bottom half of the armor with a wash of raw Umber. Did not
    apply sealer beacause I wanted a tarnished look.


    2- Cape
    a} Undercoated with Joe Sonja's Napthol red. acrylic paint.
    B} mixed Cadmium red + Cadmium red deep for base color.
    c} medium shadow, Cadmium red.
    d} deep shadows, Alozzarin crimson.
    e} extreme shadows, Chrome green.
    f} medium highlight, Cadmium red.
    g} extreme highlights, Scarlet red.
    h} while still wet I applied dirt and mud to the bottom or where
    desired,I highlighted and shadowed the mud and dirt as much as
    possible.
    i} Put figure in oven to dry at a low temperature of 140 degrres for a couple
    days to eliominate the sheen.

    3 Read leather
    painted the red leather same way as the cape,except for the base color I
    added a touch of allizarin crimson and a bit more of cadmium red deep.

    So it's true, when the head is lopped off the body keeps moving.

    All kidding aside, very nice work. I look forward to seeing the finished product.

    Sorry about the horrific pictures.
    I used the same technique for the helmet as I did for the rest of the armor.
    The crest was painted in lighter shades of red .
