Hey lads! Anyone out there know of any good online resources for assisting me in painting my II/10 Camillan Roman army? Seems like Roman painting guides online are few and far between.
Thanks in advance! :up

Shields should be some basic color like a sort of dull off-white or dull-red or dull-yellow, etc. No real evidence for blazons on the shields for these troops but they may have had names and unit numbers written on them somewhere but probably not on the front.
Tunics are either kind of yellowish cream colored, dull-red, dull-green, etc. Probably mostly the cream.
Helmets and chest plates should probably be painted gold to simulate highly polished bronze.
Leather I would probably mostly keep natural colors of brown except maybe for officers, then probably red or black or green should be preferred.
If you include any chain-mail, but that is more a Polybian Roman and Marian Roman thing, it should be iron colored and not real shiny.
Swords, Tangs and points on Pili (plural of Pilum) should be painted silver, iron but highly polished but may a lot more shiny for a low grade polished steel.
Cavalry shields are more likely to have a blazon.
Most feathers would be white, red or black, same with plumes or horsehair crests.
Muscle curaisses on high ranking officer types and some cavalry should also be gold for polished bronze or for generals might be silvered.
I hope this helps. Camillans, Polybians, and Marians are not real flashy but they are usually very effective killing machines.

I've always liked various whites and off whites with black feathers.
Not a very good pic I'm afraid.
