|Legionary Cohort painted by Tom Jones|
The first unit he loosened up on was the legionary cohort which is the third in our growing little collection and imagine my delight when I saw these completed on his painting desk when I got back from Paris last weekend.
I was particularly pleased with the skin tones achieved and the highlights on the armour.
Not only that but Tom has achieved some great facial expression with these guys. I particularly love the Centurion who looks like he is snarling at the oncoming enemy.
When we went away last weekend Tom was laying down the block colours on his scorpio. This was the final model all based up and ready to go.
I think he has done a fantastic job with these models and I now feel obliged to up my game.
I think the skin tones have gone even better on these chaps, check out the delineated knee cap on the kneeling legionary above - love it.
So the future of JJ's Wargames is in the hands of the next generation. Well done Tom and no pressure on his younger brother Will, who can also work a paint brush when he is of a mind to.
