The use of those colours for Praetorians or the legions is unlikely. Black was considered the colour of death and would have been seen as bad omen. Purple was restricted to senators.hobbyworker wrote:black or dark metal and purple clothes..?

White or blue crests are a possibility, I guess ...
I've got some Foundry figures in cuirasses, so these could make command figures ... I think this century will be fun to do.
I'm considering the attic head/helmet combo too. I have received the transfers, and the attic helmets are really lovely ... but the faces were miscast (eye detail missing) so I'm waiting on WG for a replacement. Then I plan to finish one praetorian as a test and to whet my appetite!
