Rebuilding my Carthaginians
Lately, I've been digging into a pile of Punic era figures to finish a long-stalled Field of Glory project. I sold my Mid Republican Roman army last winter and in the process, I cannibalized my Carthaginian to build out the Romans. I planned to paint up replacement battlegroups but then along came a gladiator project, 3 Impetus armies and my Maurice Ottoman army. After 8 months delay, here are the replacements! All Old Glory figure.
Numidian Light Horse: My Carthaginian cavalry is generally outclassed or ignored in my matches so I'm going to try a different approach. I'll max out on Numidian Light Horse (3 battlegroup) and take a Numidian ally which allows a 4th BG. That should be enough to tie up enemy cavalry while sending one unit after the camp. Colors are variations on a brown theme but I do like the look of these fellows all massed up. This time through, I deduced that the small blob at the bottom of some shields is a feather!
