    Hi Guys,

    Just finished this one last night, ready for Avon show. A 1/16 Miniart Roman figure built virtually straight from the box apart from some minor alterations to the wrists and the addition of trousers in Miliput.

    All painted in Vallejo acrylics, I have tried to push the contrasts a bit more with this one. Metallics are Vallejo with Tamiya Smoke wash. The shield decal settled well onto a gloss finish and was then washed and matt varnished. Wooden base by me and laser cut nameplate by me also!

    Thanks for looking(y)

    Steve, can I ask how you sourced the decal for the shield ? I've hand-painted them on 54's, but a bit daunted for 75mm.

    Cheers, Alan

    Saw this one close up at the Avon show today.
    You wouldn't think this was a relatively cheap plastic kit ... it's so well finished.
    Very well done Steve.

    Cheers,
