In my book it said caliga and that was a "military boot" - but I don't even do English.

Romans added to the base - when solid will start to make and then add the bits and bobs

While waiting for Zaks ditty, some ideas for the shields.
Top row the disc cut from thin aluminium, and a hole cut in some paper/card. Middle row paper fastened to disc and bottom row paper cut at the edges of the disc. 
Works OK but will have to make a lot to be able to choose the best, and will also try and think of another way to do it. Might try and fasten a bit of solder around the disc edge and see how that goes - suppose I could just paint a ring on the risc edge but would be best if it has a slightly 3D effect

Start made on the second Romans model.
Four soldiers at the corners of the empire - not sure if they will be looking inward towards Rome or looking outwards and protecting the borders of the empire - decisions decisions decisions - hohohoho

Outwards for me!
