On the workbench

My first Caesarean Roman Century

My first Caesarean Roman Century


This is a work in progress of my first Caesarean Roman Century.  I tried using the army painter shading method on the first few, but really didn’t like the results I was getting and changed to a more conventional style for the majority.  I am struggling to just paint the core troops to a minimal standard and focus on the command and front rank more.  

The painting has progressed quite quickly considering I have working and have a new born baby to also contend with and I am really enjoying painting at the moment.

Let me know what you think.

    Sculls, great job mate. What is the process and paints you used for the helmets. Guido.

    Dry Brush base coat with Games Workshop (GW) brazen brass, once that is dry apply GW rust brown ink wash – this is an old wash so not sure if it still exists, I am going to try a different wash on the last few models to see the effect. Then dry brush GW shining gold as the next layer, finally apply a very light silver layer on the extreme raised areas to finish. Depending on how I am feeling, I may apply a very thin brown ink wash at the very end just to take the edge off.
