Ripenses were the same frontier troops during later Roman Empire as Limitanei only their duty was bounded with guarding rivers.

The Roman navy, despite performing vital logistical duties from Iraq to Ireland and integral to the Pax Roma in the Mediterranean for century after century, was quite often sneered at by the more conventional Roman soldiery. It was less like the US Navy or the UK's Royal Navy and more like the US Coast Guard (or the US Army's logistical/transport "navy").

Really glad to hear it :-).I'm still struggling with toning down my bright colors-and I think this newest painting is at least little bit better in this sense than previous works.

Yes I agree. You know I think you are onto something though with the colours as the period was one redolent with colour and tone. It is shocking to our modern eyes. The addition of dirt and wear is the way to go, I think, though: rough men in worn-out clothes, perhaps?

The metal on the helmets looks awesome, as well as the perspective.

For me this is very colorful which kind of makes it a little unrealistic.

But you have a lot of skill, when it comes to humans, proportions and perspective.

Yeah I hear this often its my biggest problem and I have this always on mind when doing something new but it's a tough fight.I think this one is little bit better then my earlier works in this sense.
