Your Foundry Caesarian Romans look stunning (extremely impressive) - brilliant idea/work on the shields - Awesome painted unit!cheers,
Thankyou kindly Phil, glad you liked them!
Thanks kindly Sir!
Great looking Caesarian Romans - The Foundry sure look fresh they way you've painted them.
Thanks Dean, except for the shields and standards this particular foundry range are still up there with the latest !
Beautiful unit - and good call on adding a little extra curve on the shields. Again I must commend your exceptionally well executed weathering, the shields really make this unit.
Thanks Soren, the lack of proper curve on aventines republican roman shields are the only gripe i ever found to their other wise outstanding ancients, and are still better than foundrys dated looking shields!
Awesome job on these Romans, shields are very impressive!
Thanks kindly Phil!
Outstanding brushwork! As said above weathering is first rate.
Thanks for nice comments Jonathan!

Fantastic work. Love the brass and metal work. Can I bother you for what paints and washes you used?David
Thanks David, The brass is vallejo metallic liquid gold with washes of model colour smoke!
Greate paintwork indeed!
Lovely brushwork on nice figs. I read the shields are Aventine shields,with a bit more curve added to them by yourself. Can you tell me which shield s you bought please and how you managed the bend? I have foundry caesarians to paint and have the two types of shileds supplied but want to unify the shileds to one type. Foundry quoted me £10.00 for 12 shields,needless to say I declined their offer.
Hard to explain but put a strip of protective plywood(I cut a 30mm plywood round base in half) one side of shield and place a pair of pliers over it clamping shield and plywood together, and whilst holding other side with hand twist pliers downwards and shield will bend, you will need to position pliers at top end of shield, and when it has curved repeat in middle and lower end to get a general uniform curve then repeat other side of shield, dont worry if they look a little off, once painted its not noticeable! It really is easier than it is to describe! The shields are Aventine code AVS012, £4.50p for pack of 20! Hope this has helped and good luck, the Aventine shields are far better in my humble opinion.
Thanks I had been wondering about the shield bending, too. Very interesting!
Your welcome Simon!
Now that they are based they have gone from excellent to double excellent!!Christopher
