28mm Caesarian Romans

I have taken a small detour from 15s to try and get some of my small pile of foundry Caesarian Romans completed. The standard is from Aventine miniatures as are the shields which have been bent inwards to add a bit more curve to them.

  1. Very nice work indeed - especially on the added laurels and weathering of the shields. Much have happened to 28's since these foundry castings saw the light of day, but your skilled painting certainly present them in all their glory.

    1. Thanks kindly Soren, yes these sculpts have been around a while now, but there is still no better Caesarians on the market, the only thing that looks dated is the actual shields and puny standards, hence the Aventine replacements!

  2. Really stunning. Hand painted shields with deliberate variation of the design and background colour- how classy is that! Interesting that you have used some Aventine shields, I really like that idea, and will nick it. :-)

    1. Thankyou Simon, very kind considering you have Legions of these figures!
      I actually seen one of your own cohorts sporting a similar style which i liked so i guess i nicked it from you so by all means please nick the Aventine shield idea!

    2. I thought they looked familiar- lovely figures that Andres Amain painted for me. At the moment David Imrie has been copying some of my other cohorts and has given me some great ideas that I'm going to nick next time I base some up. :-)
