Ancient German Shields


I discovered this again in an old sketch book, I created these years ago, might be of use to someone out there painting up German tribes. They are all made up but would look effective I think in a war band.

 My Anceint Germans are still waiting to be painted, another peak in the lead mountain. Great figures though, got to love those Foundry Germans.

I think these were how I found your blog. I was researching patterns for my dba army. That was a long time ago.

Ha ha great stuff. I love finding old memories like this. I must have sketched these in 2009 or there about, it should be on the blog somewhere. Where they any help with your army? I had to ask.

Yes, I definitely used some ideas. The biggest problem I had was trying to find out which colour dyes they had. I also wonder about the paint etc. how would they colour a shield so the rain didn't wash it straight off?

Thanks they will be useful when I get round to painting my German warbands later this year

Good Afternoon, I have been following your blog for several years I love your carton work! It tells you how long my attention span is that I just came across your came across your post regarding your outstanding Roman campaign. I was wondering if you would mind answering a few questions about your campaign?
