Great Cinema!

One of the great cinematic scenes from the outstanding movie Gladiator. To replicate this scene, as an advancing Century of the 2nd Cohort, I am using Aventine's EIR0005 packet of 4 Pilum arm attached-separately men.
I am prep'ing them with my normal large hobby sticks and Loctite Fun Tack.  Next I will prime them with P3's Black Primer.
This is a photo from the Aventine store website.  Primed in grey.  
They have Imperial Italic "H" style helmets: the "Niedermörmter helmet, classified by Robinson as Imperial Italic H, is one of the best-preserved Roman Imperial helmets to have survived from antiquity. Made of bronze and has a neck guard which is far deeper than usual. The cross bracing across the skull is actually embossed, rather than applied, and there is a rather unusual dome-shaped knob where the braces meet at the crown of the head."
