@Carvel - very nice; like the highlighting/shading - have you changed technique slightly? The eyes look pretty good as they are, btw; the red's fine, too, v bright. Good job with the stubble but ... they all look a bit limp around the wrist!
@ clive...no worries. Kept going with the shields despite the lure of transfers. I dont think theres much else I can do to them . cant say I'm pleased with them but not sufficiently displeased to paint over them. Its a learning process I suppose. If we never try we never progress..... Here they are after some fettling...

Very nice - it's just that I'd got some Barbarian shield transfers (for 10mm minis) to fit the buckler-sized shields from the Celt extras, and they'd fit fairly well - thought the Praetorian ones would look OK too! Didn't see that colour combo coming ... Claret & Blue!!! That explains the slings - bunch of football hoolies!!

The handpainted shields are not bad. They may represent the munition quality field items. I even prefer selfmade items, everyone can buy some super decals. But to do your best and getting better over the years, that's the real thing.
Praetorians with slings are realy a nice idea. Being well trained soldiers drawn from the Legions we can be sure that they knew how to use them.
