    Last one for me. it would be cool to paint low reliefs and leave background bronze. Like sometimes they did for marble sculpture. Some where completely painted, some not.
    But I don't know if it was so for shields, historically speaking.

    EDIT: sorry, I opened wrong page and didn't see the posts I answered to were old...

    I already planned on doing this after I had finished the next project in line, namely the Antigonids

    I'm pretty sure you've researched it enough, but here, just few more examples of bronze glints to help you make up your mind:

    One thing I learned while browsing btw is that bronze should have a bright golden-yellow tint, chocolate brownish tint is most probably a sign that thing is made of brass, not bronze. Compare for example:

    Yep, there is a quite distinctive difference, indeed.

    I am quite happy with the current results, as I wanted to meet the tone of other bronce equipment in the game and most mods.
    If you compare the shields on the latest picture with the helmets and breastplates, you can see that I got pretty close.
    Close enough IMO.

    I can and will do a more bronze looking version if people would like, though before I do that Ill finish other factions.
    Ive found a few coins I want to bring onto Antigonid shields.

    They're looking ideal for shields.

    Thats actually two sides of the same coin, one of them is the Shield with an ANT Monogram for Antigonos,
    the other is with a helmet (and I think BAS for Basileon)

    Other coins Im thinking of using are heads of Kings, distributed to reforms.

    BTW, the helmet on the former coin is a konos.
    Its not quite sure how prevalent it was, but I can imagine that it was the most common one if ancient sources basically tell us it was "standard issue" for Macedonian armies. There are a few publications about how Alexander instigated such a rearmament shortly before his death.

    Yep. Probably correct.

    They're looking great. Have you started any implementation of them yet?

    I have started the progress on the heads, it takes a ot of time though.
    I need to smooth over all those tiny dents and scratches, and that takes a lot of time with free programs like GIMP^^
    Ive once done the same with a Ptolemy IV coin, though the results were less than stellar,
    my expertise with GIMP has increased since then, and I think Im up to the task

    A combination of IRL stuff and a case of lost motivation.
    If theres a demand, Ill release a pack file so whoever wants to continue this can do so.
