Soldiers Praetorian Guard Update #1
Further progress on this more recent release from Soldiers. I have completed highlights on the trousers, edged the armor, painted the red leather belting and the upper portion of the mantle. At this point I attached the helmeted head. I primed the two mantle halves that will attach in back of the figure and painted the maroon color on the insides. Once dry they can be glued on with epoxy before painting the back. I must paint the hem and sleeve details as well as a round design on the lower half of the tunic that was a frequent element of tunics from this period. Lots more work to do on this figure but it is progressing nicely.
