Soldiers SR-59 Vexillarius -Update #4

A bit more progress, starting the Labarum (standard) and the armor.

The armor starts with a basecoat of Gold Printers Inks and a bit of Burnt Umber oils added. Once dry I will start adding washes of browns and blacks before highlighting with pure printers ink. The Labarum started with Cadmium Red Deep and Extra Deep from Liquitex to set the mid tones. The shaft of the standard has gotten an initial coat of Burnt Sienna.

The helmet was aged with a patina created by applying pure Mars Black and letting it sit for an hour before wiping the oils off with a lint free cloth. Once I start painting the cloak I will attach the neck guard and paint the leather trim.
