    Hi folks, here are some pics of my Roman Signifer in progress. Trousers are only in the base colour so far. I do paint with oils, so you can surely see a lot of glossy parts, which I will rid of with the matt varnish. Hope you like it. I am looking for all kind of comments, thanks for watching.

    Hi Robert
    Looking pretty good so far, I am painting this one at the moment as part of my Roman diorama. I also use oils but put my figures in a hot box overnight which mats out the paint, face looks nice, good luck with the checks on the trousers.
    Cheers

    Looks extremely well painted so far.
    I also use a drybox with a 60 W lightbulb. Every color goes matt.

    Lovely painting Robert. I'm looking forward to seeing your next steps.

    TonyDawe: I will airbrush it with the Modelmaster matt varnish (in the round glass bottle), it will be nice velvet matt, I have the best experiences with this varnish;)

    Very nice painting Robert, look forward to seeing the trousers finished.About using varnish I try to avoid it if I can after a few disasters and always heat my figures under a lamp.Have just got a airbrush so will maybe give your method a try .

    Hi Robert,

    It will look perfect once you've taken the shine off the reds mate. The checks on the pants are insane. Well done.
