Centurion's helmet or "Things we do for our children."

A few days ago we got a letter home from school telling us Adam is going to be a Roman soldier in the school christmas play and please can we provide a costume. I had been browsing through papermau and they had a link to a roman legionarys helmet. 16 sheets of 160gsm and 8 hours of cutting and sticking later. 1 roman helmet.

I've now got to build a set of Lorica segmentata. Photos when I've got my head round it

purbrook models competition

Found a competition on facebook where Purbrook models send you a free miniature and you do what you can with it in a month, I received my mantic corporation marine and I think I got a mismatched pair of arms. when I put it together it looked as if he was playing a guitar solo on his rifle so an hour or so later he is. I'll get him under-coated later and painted this evening.
