I kinda regret buying the yellow shields, it dosn't seem very roman, red, white, purple and even blue yes, but yellow?
Granted I'm a roman noob and know little about it, I decided to give them a theme like I did with the hastati, the hastati had blue white theme, blue cloth, white shield, the officers had white trimming and stuff like that, I dicded to give these the yellow white theme, the cloth is white, the shield is yellow, and the chainmail got yellow borders and trim. I keep the feathers blue/purple as that is going to be the legion sign, all units in this legion will have those feather, if this is realistic of historic I do not know. But I'll find out sooner or later.
These Principes come with a loose arm, so you can make sevral diffrent stances, I know that romans stabbed and thrusted with the sword, so I have given the front rank a under thrust type stance, ready to move the shield to the side, and stabb low to high or center to high. the back rank has the swords in a higher possision.
I gave the shoulds yellow border to keep with the yellow theme. I also gave these more elaborate scabards then the hastati, with yellow in the center, and bronze borderd.
Another small anoyance is the yellow I used on the shields, the transfers are a slightly diffrent shade of yellow, then the yellow I used to fill out the shields since the transfer dosn't cover the whole of the shiled, I had to use my own yellow paint, to color the far edges, but it'a not the exact same yellow, so the shields look slighlty off.
