Roman General and Dog

We all knew who Warlord Games had in mind when they released this figure


Cammie bought it a wee while back for his Imperial Roman Army, which alas is still some way off seeing the battlefield. Possibly because of that he asked me if I had could have have a go painting Maximus, sorry, I mean random Roman General figure from the late 2nd Century AD.



And despite the lovely detail on his cuirass and his armour, I found the lack of hair detail on the back of the General's head and his cloak a bit disappointing. It would have been nice to have seen a few more folds in the cloak, in particular



So, the General and his dog now stand forlornly waiting for the first signs of the General's Army getting a lick of paint. Hope he's brought his sandwiches, it could be a long wait
