Legio VI signum ... work in progress

I had a bit of free time this evening so I thought to begin work on the signum. I have literally ‘beefed-up’ the Faller cow to give it more of a bull-like appearance.

The size of the bull may be a bit exaggerated (the calves were just too small), but I think I can live with this.

Work in progress: After removing the cow’s udder and the paint from the cow’s head and shoulders I added Milliput to sculpt the heavier profile. The figure is Warlord Games’ aquilifer.

The plinth will need some detail adding, probably using very thin plasticard, and I plan to add horns to give the bull a bit more aggression … but first I’ll see how gentle sanding of the Milliput works out.
