I have finally finished the two sets of 28mm Roman Testudo which I bought from Black Tree Designs about a year ago. It was a long winded labor as I had to pin every shield then arrange each mini so that its shield was in the right place. It took a long time to do this and I resigned myself to just plugging away until it was done. Pinning everything and gluing it with epoxy paid off as when I was varnishing one of the sets the ladder which leans on the wall of the garage decided that it was going to fall onto the figures and knock them across the concrete floor of the garage. When that happened I thought that the set would have been smashed up but it was intact and the only damage was a couple of minor paint chips off the rims of three shields. I fixed those up easily. Well here are the two sets side by side. Woe betide any foe that thinks they can hide behind their walls from this lot.
Stunning work! I have a couple of BTD Testudo sets, but didn't think they would warrant the modelling work. I now see that I was wrong! Must put them together next year.ReplyDelete
