    Thank you Pedro, Zeno and Steve for your comment. I am sorry for the bad pictures. I trying to make better pictures but
    it is difficult. The figures are very nice to paint. There is some little work for the cape of the centurion and some things for the
    metals on the figure. Waiting for Model master enamel. I am very pleased you like it.
    Regards Dick

    Lovely work Dick,

    I have a couple of questions for you:

    Firstly who is the manufacturer of these mini's?

    Onto your colors, what colors did you use for the undergarment showing under the chainmail and on the trousers?


  12. housecarl Moderator

    Excellent work on both Dick.
    They're Andrea pieces Mark.

    Hello Mark

    Carl have it right these are both Andrea pieces (Roma centurion and legionary I B.C. code SR-01 and SR-02 of Andrea miniatures)
    for the undergarment I used for:

    Base: NAC-08 russian khaki (Andrea colour)
    Light: NAC-04 field grey (Andrea colour)
    Shadows: NAC-26 flat black (Andrea colour)
    You can also lighting it with beige or yellow sand colour if you want a other effect.

    For the trousers I used:
    Base: Burnt Umber (vallejo model colour 941) with a little bit beige (vallejo 917) to make the right base colour
    Light: Beige (vallejo model colour 917)
    Shadows: German cam.black brown (vallejo model colour 822)

    Of course you can use similar colours to have these effects. The Andrea colours have totaly flat finish. The Vallejo
    colours need a flat varnish when you use it. For the lighting and shadows I have make it darker or lighter with the base colour till
    almost the pure lighting or shadow colour.
    I hope it was helpfull for you. If you have any quistion please let me now.

    Greetings Dick

    Greet to see them finished Dick! Done a great job with them after the Fernando Workshop at Eindhoven. Hopefully you also can make it to Euro.
