Hi Guys, I've always loved this large scale bust of a Roman Centurion by Andrea Miniatures. The bust appears to be very closely modelled on a Centurion re-enactor from the Ermine Street Guard. The good news for me is there are plenty of good quality, hi-res images available on the internet to ensure good references. The cloak is cast in resin, and my one had loads of bubble holes in it which has taken several nights of filling and sanding. I've decided to coat the cloak with a single sheet of tissue paper to enhance the woollen texture of the cloak, which should be interesting when it comes time to start painting. Here are the first pics of the face. I love the big nose on this guy. Painted only in Josonja acrylics at this stage, I will progressively sharpen up the finer details, improve the blending and add eyebrows and a 5 o'clock shadow in acrylics, before adding a series of oil washes to bring out the depth in the skin tones. As always, I welcome any comments, criticisms or helpful suggestions.
