Roman Test Paints
My friend, Ernie at Architects of War, is now carrying "Little Big Men Studios" shield transfers and I picked up some. Wow! they were a snap to put on and really look great. I got the two on in the photo without any issues at all - what a great product. Of course the whole goal is to ensure people look at the pretty shields rather than my rather pedestrian paint job.
Overall I like how these came out. I did learn an important lesson in painting these chaps up - DON'T GLUE THE SHIELDS ON BEFORE PAINTING! Painting would have been a lot easier if the shields remained on the sprue for a bit longer. Never-the-less, I liked painting the guys and look forward to doing the rest.
I do apologize for both the picture and painting quality - I'm having some minor motor control issues today with my left side due a very limited but sometimes recurring after effect of a pair of strokes in 2006. These were painted with one hand and a vice. My progress will be a bit slow but steady.
OK, the Saint's kick-off is at 4:05PM EST so I need to go and get ready for the game. Gotta love painting and American Football!!!!!
