I Legio Command Stand

I tried something slightly different with one of these command figures. He came with a large aspis-type shield, which was just crying out for some kind of appropriate design. A few months ago, I saw some really nice 15mm Imperial Romans in a Field of Glory game. The guy who painted them had used the troopers' shield design transfers on command vexillia, so that the command flags had the same device as the shields. Some judicious slicing produced the same kind of effect here. I'll probably do the same for the cavalry when I eventually get round to those. It is quite difficult to do, since the LBMS transfers are shaped for specific shields, but I'm happy with how it looks.
