    Finished this off at the end of last week before taking it with me to the BMSS Annual show in London.
    After finishing the Roman's shield and before attaching the figures I finished off the base(s) with a spray of enamel black and some gold letraset rub on transfers (in Times New Roman font of course). Hope you like the result.

    P.s. I used to go mountain biking in Teutoburg Forest when I was stationed nearby in Gutersloh and also visited Hermannsdenkmal, near Detmold, which commemorates the battle (albeit a little too far south). One day I rode from Bielefeld along the ridge to Hermann and back (over 90km off-road), I couldn't walk or sit down for days afterwards iirc but it was an awesome ride. It is a beautiful place, and the biggest forest I ever experienced (it stretches for over 100km from Osnabruck in the north to Paderborn in the south).

    Your vignette has brought back some happy memories, many thanks (y)

    Just reiterating what's already been said, but that is stunningly good, Alex! (y)
    Very dynamic composition emphasized by the sloping base, and top-notch painting and groundwork. I love the split base and great quality pics too.

    Very inspirational work, thanks for posting them.
