After producing two models of the famous Roman testudo, MIR followed them up with this model, which is basically the same thing but with a single line of shields. This has 10 shields in a row, resting on the ground, and with a Roman peering over the top of each. Above and behind each man is a second shield, clearly being held up by a man behind him, though there is no other evidence of these men. The back and sides of the model are unfinished, that is to say, they are bare resin with nothing sculpted. The whole model is hollow.
As regards accuracy, well the shields and helmets look OK, and nothing else can be seen. There really is not much to say about this piece, except that it is a very quick way of getting large numbers of troops onto a tabletop. Though by no means a polished or good-looking model, it might prove useful to wargamers of early Imperial Roman battles.
