Another extremely nice model - I couldn't produce that in 1/16, let alone 75mm. Is the sheild a decal? I particularly lke the legs, a nice blend in the skin tones. The base is very good also. Just one thing, the legs and shoes look to clean, I mean the shoes are weathered but the the mud should spread up the legs if you look at the sheild as a guide.
Cheers

No, it is not. I never use decals on my figures.

Extremely good painting

A steady hand, and patience, and some practice my friend. This is not the only shield I've painted with complicate drawings

That is some amazing painting on that shield! Acrylics? This is really fine work you've done.
I have to ask about the color of the body armor. Would it really be a silverish color? I'm not sure, but isn't he in the 'Bronze Age' of metalurgy? It looks great but maybe too steel like for the period?
Cheers!

Not sure if my history is complete but the Romans came on the scene as the bronze age was ending. Aprox. 200 B.C.?

Fantastic job all the way around, but the shield needs special praise!

My only suggestion would be a little more flat top spray since there seems to be a little gloss in the cloak.

Yes, acrylics.
The Lorica Segmentata (the armor he's wearing) has been used between the years 9 B.C - late 3rd cen. A.D. So, this legionary can not be from the bronze age. Actually the producer says on the box that he is from 1st ce. A.D.
Hope this helps.. For more info try a search with Lorica Segmentata on Google.

Yes I agree. I'll do that, and thanks.

Got side tracked trying to figure the time era and forgot to say what a great figure you ended up with. I have a few large scale figures and the hardest for myself is the skin tones blending together. Yours are exceptionaly fine. And to get such a shield hand painted, fantastic.
