Roman Shields – Adding the Ramming Ball

Posted by nwyatt on Monday Feb 12, 2018 Under Uncategorized

Dear Team Kestrel,

Once the shields had been painted with their yellow eagle wing or lightning bolt design, the ramming ball or ‘boss’ was added. This was designed to knock the enemy off balance if close combat was required.

We painted our main rectangle of iron grey by sketching round an a4 piece of paper. We then used paper plates and plastic bowls to give the hemisphere effect.

Kind Regards,

Mr. W
