I've made up some Numidian cavalry for my Roman army and they are incredible sculpts. I like them a lot and I hope you will too Grant! Good luck, bud. Can't wait to see your progress.

I painted a Numidian army using figures from Crusader miniatures.
These Victrix plastics do appeal though.
My army was used for WAB, with some success, but using that system it relied heavily on the elephants. Plus having cavalry that feared the elephants was problem when deploying.
No idea how they will perform under Hail Ceaser rules.

I'm looking forward to seeing this develop.

Great to see you back Grant.

What prompted you to re-enter the arena?

Thanks! And to everyone else for the support.


Well...
just when I thought I was out, they pulled me back in!

Iíve spent the last 8 or so months purging; I was down to nothing. But I have a lot of time on my hands; Iím off work for medical reasons, and next week Iíll have an airbrush and paints again.

Need to fill my days with more than Netflix.

Grant, are the shields and weapons separate on the plastic Numidian infantry? I'm thinking of using them for construction workers and slaves in Gangs of Rome.
Cheers,

The Numidians are:

Head
Body including legs
Right arm with weapon - easy to cut off the javelin/whatever
Left arm
Separate shield

I think they could make good Roman workers.
