S.P.Q.ORC - Pax Bochemannica - complete

The three Noman Legionnaire (Orc) test miniatures are now finished. 

I have completed the three shield designs (see earlier post) and attached them with superglue and accelerator. The miniatures have been checked over for any obvious missed areas and then varnished.

I have used Ronseal Hardcote Gloss Varnish and when fully dry, three thin coats of Galleria brush-on Matt Varnish. This is my tried-and-tested varnishing system and one that I would recommend.

The flocking has been done in two stages, first a single static grass clump to each base and then a sprinkling of ordinary static grass applied over uPVA glue.


And here they are individually photographed and in close-up.




Now that they are finished I can confirm how much fun they are to paint and although I think they might be a touch to dark, I'm pleased with the finished effect and glad that I stuck with my own unique style of painting miniatures.

Finally they are quite chunky miniatures and with the large Roman shields, very imposing.

Next month I will paint the three Halflings.

I am looking forward to the official release - due in late December/early January and even though I am not sure it will be a huge collection of figures for me, I am sure that I will get the initial box set, rules and figures. I will post details once I have them.

I really like the way you have tackled and finished these figures Tony. Your simple yet comprehensive guide is great and the finished figures are great :)

Lovely work Tony, the bases are really nice!
Can't wait to see your halflings, it's been fun watching these 'grow'.
Cheers
