Cornicen is relaying them to the Cohort. The Legion's Eagle is held by the Aquilifer stoutly providing a boost of confidence to the army. And the Legion's standard is held high for all to see the honors of the Augusta Legion.
The figures here are not Army Painter Dip "dipped" yet (minus the Aquilifer). I've finished up the paint and gloss poly varnished them so far. I wanted to get the bases started and then I'll dip them all in one application and do some little highlight paint touches. This is my first go at this using this method, so I'll see if I like it better than doing each mini individually.Optimus Buccina, and his Signum standard bearer together. For my 2nd Cohort 8th Legion battlefield, Tribune Buccina is the currently rotated leader of the Cohort from the Legate's staff. He is armed with a Pilum as he smartly understands the Celt's they face today outnumber the Romans greatly and he'll join in the fighting and is not afraid. These minis are also not "dipped" yet. I will do that once the spackle dries. Then finish them all with ground cover and then apply the final matte varnish spray coat.
