Numidians, a dead project. See the Bazaar.
« on: January 11, 2018, 04:11:14 AM »
I have been hooked. Thanks to Julian at Victrix, for all his help, and I’m embarking on my first big 28mm project in years.

Numidians for Hail Caesar. Models have shipped. Stay tuned. I haven’t painted in so long. I plan to airbrush the majority of them using an Iwata HP-B+; speed, blending, all at once.

Standby, wait one...

Cama4actual, out.

Nice choice, victrix has great basic numidian units (cavalry, innsatry and the bran new elephants); moreover you can mix it easily with other range (ie cartaginians, greek exc) to produce ad hoc minis. Looking forward to see the first units!

Check up in last year's post on what they actually looked like. Some very handy photographs.

No half measures Grant - that's a horde you got! :D

What will be your unit size for the infantry? For my HC Carthaginian infantry I'm unsure if I'll do them 2 or 3 ranks deep..............

Grant,

That is a fantastic undertaking.  Looking forward to seeing the project coming together.

What will be your unit size for the infantry? For my HC Carthaginian infantry I'm unsure if I'll do them 2 or 3 ranks deep..............

We went for 3 ranks deep and they look just right.  Almost a phalanx but not quite but deeper than the Romans who are in 2 ranks deep.  In Hail Ceasar with the the phalanx rule it gives the Medium (or in the case of Numidians - Light Infantry) Spearmen a chance against a legion.
