Death In The Forest
The destruction of Varus AD9
Finally finished my vignette depicting a snapshot of the defeat of Varus' Legions by Arminius and the German tribes in AD9.
I have finished off the Roman's shield using a green laurel design rather than the popular yellow wings and lightning bolt to try and achieve a greater colour harmony with the groundwork, much the same as I did by colouring the German's tunic a rusit red to match the ferns in the undergrowth.
The base(s) have been sprayed with an enamel black prior to applying Letraset rub down transfers in Gold and then sealing with a number of matt varnish coats to protect the lettering.
Here are the pictures of the finished piece.
