Roman Testudo - work in progress

I've started work on my testudo.   The scheme is going to be very basic, enough to represent one on the gaming table. For an idea of what I was aiming for I printed off the image of the Warlord Games 28mm testudo.

  • The front and side shields are fixed to a card frame, as are those for the top.
  • The men in the testudo are represented by heads visible in between the top and sides, with legs fixed underneath. The back 4 men will be full figures, holding up the rear top shields.
  • When all is painted up, the shields will have their designs stuck on.

The components for my model, coming together slowly .....
