Over Easter a number of Roman units I have been working on were finished off so here's the first of several blog entries featuring my latest efforts. These are Blue Box Elite Command factory painted metal figures. The original red shields have been removed and used elsewhere. The ones I have added are repainted Toyway shields. The original spears were wobbly or damaged so I replaced with my own made from re-purposed viking ship oars!
As usual these were based on 7cm square X 2mm deep plastic card. Strong enough to hold metals without warping (as long as correct glue is used) whilst also low profile as I am not keen on thick bases where avoidable.
Status markers. The two prone figures below are repainted Toyway and the standing chap on the left is a converted Russian plastic figure.
