A simple little miniature really, and one that shows the development of Soldier's Roman line and the skills of Adriano Laruccia (compare to our Emperor Marcus). Sometimes something simple requires something special, so on to the shield. The back of the shield is completed so that I can attach it to the figure and the base once the groundwork painting and weathering is complete. As you can see I have started dirtying up the figure already with some splashed dots of thinned brown oils. Next will come the mud.
