Translation start:

Siegbert: Ignis, you really are courageous warrior. / ジークベルト: イグニス。君は本当に勇敢な戦士だね。

Ignis: … What’s with you all of a sudden? / イグニス: …突然、どうした?

Siegbert: You’re always out in the front lines of battle, protecting people … / ジークベルト: 戦場では常に前線へと出て、己の身を盾にして、人々を守る…

I think you’re very model of a soldier. / そんな君の姿は戦士の鑑だと思う。

Ignis: I’m only doing what comes naturally … / イグニス: 俺は当然のことをしているだけだ…

‘Cause all I can do is stick my neck out and hope for the best … / この体を張ることくらいしか、俺にはできないからな…

Siegbert: So it’s natural to stick your neck out for others … / ジークベルト: 体を張るのが当然のことか…

I want to become a brave warrior just like you. / 私もイグニスのような勇敢な戦士になりたいよ。

Ignis: You’ve bought too much stock in me … there are plenty of soldiers who are far superior to me … / イグニス: 買いかぶり過ぎだ…俺より優れた戦士はたくさんいる…

And everyone’s got their own role. You’ve no need to be out in the front lines fighting. / それに人にはそれぞれ役割がある。ジークベルトが前線に出て戦う必要はない。

That’s a role for someone like me … / そういうのは、俺みたいな奴の役割だ…

Siegbert: What do you mean by that? / ジークベルト: どういうことだい?

Ignis: ………… / イグニス: …………

Nah, never mind … forget about it … / いや、なんでもない…忘れてくれ…

Siegbert: Ignis … ? Seems like he wanted to tell me something … / ジークベルト: イグニス…?何か、言いたげだったような…

Translation end!

Translation notes: This is mostly extremely straightforward, but I translated the first use of the word 戦士 (senshi) as warrior, because I figured it just flowed better and was closer to the image of courageous, and the others as soldier because it seemed to fit the meaning/nuance better in those places. It can be translated either way, so I figure why not go with the best for the sentence? In any case, if I need to change anything, you’ll let me know in the comments below, right?
