Romans: stick-on shield design for legionaries

While considering what shield design to use for my roman auxilaries, I decided to sort out the legionary shield (scutum) design while I had a idea of how to do it - I made a template of the shield with a hole for the shield boss using a a post-it, then found a nice image on the internet of a roman shield and sized it up to print out on some sticky labels. Below shows a shield with stick-on label applied....
After applying the sticky labels, I'll seal the shield surface with some acrylic satin varnish.
