Roman testudo (tortoise) formation. In Ancient Roman warfare, the testudo or tortoise formation was a formation used commonly by the Roman Legions during battles, particularly sieges. Testudo is the Latin word for "tortoise". The Greek term for this formation is "chelone" and during the Byzantine era, it seems to have evolved to what military manuals of the era call the "foulkon".
what i like most about this piece that i would like to incorporate into my own boss concept is the impression he presents of himself by the way he stands and his look. Just by looking at the character you know he is someone of power and not to be taken lightly. this is something i wish to project onto my own characters.
