Shields are the best fun to paint in this period. I am looking forward to working my way through this pile:
After a little internet research on the subject I am working on the best way to block out the design on the legionnaires shields. In order to avoid the finish being too dark as with the auxiliaries and the cavalry, I think, I will attempt the shield design in a light yellow backing and an ivory highlight on to the red base.
Some examples of shields done earlier
I guess the key to success in this job is patience combined with consistency. So how patient and consistent can I be?
