Jim, Thanks for posting. Man... I dig that Praefectus Classis! I wonder if the shield detail is raised? If not... well then the painter did an awesome job!!!!! Rudi

Thanks for the news Jim. The ADC could be tempting!

Nice! I have read a (Concord book?) debate that historians really don't know the color of the cloth and tunics. They assume it's read, but some say the tunics were white. So like a dinosaur, no one really knows the true color.

Yup... AFAIK pretty much true...hardly any, if any, colored friezes, sculptures or paintings have survived, and most of those that have depict unusual people (emerors, heroes like Alexander (Pompei mozaic) and gods). AFAIK (but have to go by memory now) it is very likely that mostly locally bought cloth was used. Similar to how most recruits were locally recruited as well from fairly on during the empire. So colors could be red, blue and white, maybe even green. One thing though, possibly/probably most colors were quite tempered (so rustbrown, darker blue etc.). Simply put AFAIK, really bright colors like scarlet, let alone purper were hideously expensive. Maybe for the superior officers there were exceptions, but still.... This is the little I have come across so far in my studies. Maybe someone more knowledgeable will be able to coreect me though.... Harm

This Marine Roman guy is definately prepared to go straight on my bench . About the painter of the specific figure , well he is Pietro Balloni ,one of the world masters in oil painting , and delicate schemes painting So the detail is not raised but hand painted . It takes time but asyou say the result is awsome . And at last one Romanthats not full in reds !!!!! I like a lot this alternative ! I also have to note the Napoleonic figure sculpted by Armorama member "MAB " Maurizio Bruno which is a real beauty and the Islamic house corner by Christos Apostolopoulos copatriot and very close friend of mine nice set of releases this month tight and beautiful
