Hi All

After I received my armour from a good mate and put it together I didn't want to do one of the normal chapters that are out there and after watching the movie EAGLE I decided to go with the 9TH LEGION.

I thought that a Roman/Marine style armour would be a great way to go, and also giving the armour a more rustic colour scheme it would add more to the feel and look of Roman armour. After the armour was all put together it was painted and weathered using Vallejo, GW paints and pastels.

RECIPE

Armour - The armour and grenades are all resin and needed just minor sanding to get it to fit correctly. The tubing is from other figures and kits from the bits box, the right shoulder armour design was built up using plasti-card and laurel stickers and a 28mm shield.

The helmet, chest plate, right/left knee guard and left leg have had laurel stickers and parts from some LOTR action figures also 28mm shields and 1/6th badges used. The chest straps are 1/6th modern day belts cut and glued into place, the waist belt is from the Hasbro Jango figure.

The front and back skirts are pieces of old hanky and the leather strips have been cut and glued inplace and the studs are 1/6 buttons. The studs all over the suit are also 1/6 and the purity seals are again strips of old hanky and the seals themselves are putty with three 1/6 buckles and the other is again putty with a 1/72 idle wheel pushed into it.

really good, but the midsection or thighs look a bit stretched.
