    Hi guys,

    A simple base and groundwork to set off my Vexillifer, and now he's done.

    Must say this has been one of the best figures I've ever painted and the results are very pleasing.

    I'm really happy with how the vexillum and shield design came out too. Quite a challenge for me and I'm ready to face my next challenge. Thanks to everyone who commented on my WIP thread.

    Very nice job Tony. I'd be more than chuffed with that. Did you freehand the shield?

    He turned out very nice Tony, you should be very pleased. The banner and shield are great.
    I know absolutely nothing about Romans but is he from a division that ran and hid his banner says "LEG IT" :)

    Thanks Marc, I'm glad you like it .:)

    Cheers Nick, I'll bring the figure along to our club meeting next month mate.(y)

    Hi Steve, thanks for your comments. I used Tommi's stencils to create the shapes for the shield design and free-handed the painting of the designs themselves and the banner design.:D

    Cheers Keith, gotta love those hairy Romans eh?:love:

    Hi John, thanks for your comments. I'm pleased you like the shield and banner. I'm pleased with how they turned out.;)

    Hi Adrian, I appreciate your comments. Turns out that the clavii stripes on the tunic probably don't belong on a soldier of this rank, so I can thank the historical research notes from pegaso for that. :( Dr Mike Thomas on MedRom Forum put me straight on the use of clavii, and he's the guru on such matters.:notworthy:

    Cheers Andrew, thanks for your comments mate. The banner actually signifies that the figure represents a Vexillfer of the 2nd Aduitrix Legion (Leg II), which was represented by pegasus the flying horse. I think I'll touch up the banner to make that clearer - you're the second person to point out that!!:oops:
