Painted Romans

Two units of Romans, based for Warmaster Ancients. Plus some casualties – I clipped the end figure off the stand of three and he makes a great sprawled-out dead guy.

I’ve tried to keep painting really simple. Undercoated white, then flesh, tan for wood and leather. That’s the bulk of the figure. Sometimes I’ll do tunic decorations. I’ll wash it with GW’s Agrax Earthshade and then do a quick highlight.

Metal helmets and spearpoints get a black wash and highlight as well.

The shields are taken from the notitia dignitatum, a list of units and shield designs from the late Roman Empire. Some would be incredibly time consuming so I’ll probably simplify some for future units to speed painting.
