    Working on the Signifiers tunic today in oils, also added his Gladius (Sword) and Pugio (Dagger).

    I wanted to have the Signifiers discarded helmet in the scene, I’ve read and seen images of their masked helmet and think that is a cool look, so I’ve used one of the Miniart heads. The Miniart head for each figure comes in two parts and hollow, so adapted one of these for the mask, painted brass for a simple and effective conversion.

    Thanks Mike, if I were to do chain mail again would use a slightly different technique. It’s a very time consuming process but needs to look right, think this passes for scale but does have room for improvement.

    Thanks mate, yeah need fo weather him up a bit. I’m not going to overdo the chain Mail, thinking that unlike plate armour that has a larger exposed surface Mail would almost be self cleaning with movement rubbing the rings together.

    Working on another figure today, doing a couple of the legionary from another cohort hastily banded together, so these guys have different colour tunic and scarf. Blue was an indication they served in the navy at some point; It adds a splash of colour. As this guy has been knocked to the ground he is blooded and bruised.

    Jo Sonja, life colour and tamiya acrylics with W&N oils for the tunic.

    Also weathered the Signifier shield combining with some Pilum and the damaged masked helmet, that might be an area of interest in the diorama.

    I’m off on annual leave, so I’ve had a good day in the shed with the radio on working on two of the figures. Will go over the oil paint but need those painted to dry for a few days before going over them adding more detail. My aim is to create each as their own character, that when pulled together into the final scene will add to the realism.
