Before I start a big project, I always like to paint a test figure to see if the look I have in my head matches the look I can achieve with my brush. My Field of Glory Roman army will have two legions, each with velites, hastati, principes, and triarii. One legion will have tan tunics, and the other will have faded red. I have different LBMS transfers for each regiment.
I know the red tunics will look good, so I started by painting a figure in tan. I also wanted to see if the bronze armor will look right. I am priming in brown, then drybrushing the armor with a cheap enamel bronze. Here's the test figure.
So what do you all think? Does it look convincing?
