A perfectly accurate depicition of a Late Roman Legio Palatina Infantrymen. There ore one or two minor things though, like his spear blade is funny-shaped and the metal ridge on his helmet is way too thick. The Baldricis rather tick as well, but besides that it's perfectly accurate. What these people said about the Sword being on the right and the long shields they're just trolls. Clearly you have put exceptional time and thought into this piece.
The only historically inaccurate thing on this painting is the fact that his sword is on his left hip. It should be on his right hip, as the Romans didn't draw their swords to hold them with the blade upwards, but with the blade pointing down, so they could stab the enemy over their shields.
As for the painting, I think it's marvelous! Beatiful detail, nice anatomy, and the soldier really looks as though he's about to fight yet another battle
rome [usa of the time] fell to barbarians [terrorists of the time] and also were desputing with persia [iran at the time] but now europe was conquered in a more dishonorable & rapefull way! the ▒banks▒▐▐▐
why do you waste your time competing with me? you know you are not going to win, only if you are similar to me, since birth we have followed different paths, even if we kill each other, thats not the end of the war, only a battle, why waste your time on me? your views and mind is pre-determined by your enviroment and experiences, therefore you have no free will, and what you think is not a result of your "reason" but what has been programmed in your head equaly as a computer and a machine can be set to a specific job, im not sure bout your job, but part of it is opposing people without viewing all sides! [and opposing is bad anyways]
ill be more exact, you will answer this post with even more "loop hole" answers but your answers also have loop holes, but i do not waste time on looking for them, for the world you live in is set, and it differs from the functions of the universe, and by default nothing realistic or completely true [if i say something realistic] that i say will persuade you, for your psychological language is set, but that i speak in your language does not mean you will ever understand me, you will continue to argue with me untill the end of days, for that is your progamming, to the end of days. and i know you will answer, you have no choice, you have no free will, you have to fight, you have been programmed to do it, for you are a machine made to do someone elses bidding!
For a second I thought you meant "acrylic PANTS" About 500ad, a British Roman general scored a spectacular victory with the few soldiers he had left over the invading Anglo-Saxons despite being heavily outnumbered. It's thought this was the original "King Arthur" as he took the title "Imperator" offered by the people.

Hello ^^ No problem, you can use them, if possible, you just have to mention the author. I have few other Ancient stuff if you are interested, another Viking with a different armor, helmet and shield, an earlier Roman soldier, a Macedonian Hoplite, Macedonian warrior with sword, a Persian warrior ...
Just don't forget chainmails are made of small rings. Dark color inside, a shage of grey for the rings, and the light comes from above or the side. On this side, make the ring lighter (a lighter grey), with a point of white due the to reflection of the light on the metal. The best is to look at a real chainmail to understand how the light works on it Observation of the things and people, and to understand how the things are made is the key
