Roman cavalry Vexillifer, 3rd century A.D.

by Michael Rieß

The figure shows a Vexillifer (standard bearer) of the Roman cavalry in the 3rd century A.D. He wears scale armor and a very elaborate helmet, which was probably worn for parades only.

This is my second 54mm (1/32 scale) white metal figure from the Italian producer "Soldiers". The details are superb and i enjoyed painting the figure. I used acrylic paints from Revell and Lifecolor and oil paints from 502 Abteilung.
