My son and I enjoy the adventures of the Roman soldiers Cato and Marco in the book series by Simon Scarrow. Warlord Games has this little vignette from the first book in the series so I bought it as a give to my son to gather dust on his book case
Enjoyed painting it as something other than Lord of the Rings and tried a few things as well. In my window sill project I complained about the tea leaves turning too red and orange when I added the too wet glue - I used that to my advantage in this project where I took the tea pieces that turned red and added them to the turf under the soldier laying on the ground to depict soaked in blood.
Replaced the metal wattle fence provided with a pine needle one.
Won't win any awards but I enjoyed doing it.
