Hail Caesar Objective Marker - Druid With Roman Spoils

 Used some left-over/spare stuff to make an objective marker for an upcoming Hail Caesar game.

The figure and imago are from Warlord Games and the shields (with LBMS transfers), eagle and standard are Victrix parts.
The "SPQR" on the standard is a decal from Battle Flag.
I kept the Druid's attire in simple colors - off white for the robe and an earthy green for his cape. Figured this reflects his association with nature better than more colorful garb.
The actual game is scheduled for this coming Friday; first game in a while and likely the last I will host for the year. Although, I am planning to joining in a large multi-player Christmas Dragon Rampant game in a couple of weeks. Until next time, wishing you all the best and Happy Holidays!

  15. Fantastic objective marker! With all of the spoils of war it reminds me of one of my favorite novels "The Eagle of the Ninth." Again - wow!
