Andy Singleton has been modelling and painting most of his life and has been a professional commission figure painter for some years now. Here he shares his experience and tips of the trade with those collecting Early Imperial Romans. The emphasis is on achievable results and practical advice that is applicable to painting units or whole armies for wargaming purposes in a reasonable time frame, not on spectacular individual display pieces. Most of the figures featured in the numerous illustrations are either 28 or 25mm but the techniques described are easily adaptable to smaller sizes and both plastic and metal figures are covered. Andy’s clear, step-by-step guidance takes the reader through the process from the initial preparation and assembly of the figure, to finishing and basing. Themed chapters cover armour, weapons and equipment, clothing, skin tones, shields and horses. All together it contains all the help you need to recreate your own legions of this most iconic army of ancient history.
The book is then rounded off by considering how you base your completed figures, and again with a good variety of different ground types. To close, there is a handy Appendix which lists the various manufacturers as well as details of all the figures and materials featured in the book.Military Model Scene, Robin Buckland
Another excellent addition to the series, and as someone who has only recently got into building 'Ancient' figures (rather than Napoleonic or WW2) I found this a really handy and informative guide.

Another excellent guide by Andy Singleton that helps those of us committed to creating cohorts of 28mm Romans. It offers detailed instructions on paint choices and application methods plus many tips on getting my cohort to look right. Time will tell, but if they come up short it will not be down to the advice in this book! A must for any cohort creators.Michael McCarthy
