Its been awhile since I posted the pictures of my war elephants, but it doesn't mean that my Carthaginian army has been completely forgotten. I just haven't put any pictures of my progress on LAF. In order to make up for this here is a large block of greek hoplites that I have been working on and of for quite some time. It's an entire Victrix box of 48 hoplites. I usually use them in blocks of 24 but they look awesome in a large 48 block.

I don't have plans for a hoplites army any time soon so at the moment they serve as mercenaries in my Punic army. I might expand them into a Syracuse army using all the new Victrix greek cavalry and maybe one more box of hoplites, but that all in the future. I think that one of the really great things about a Carthaginian army, that it can serve as a springboard for lots of other armies as it is so diverse.



More Carthaginian veterans and citizen infantry on the way

cheers

Nice phalanx.  I completely agree about the Carhaginians.  Not only do they have the coolest troops but so many different types.  The problem is that you don't ever stop collecting them.  :D

Great work. Massive blocks of infantry really looks awesome.

I thought you were on a strickt painting schedule and only painted crusaders. Have you cheated with these guys?

I am and yes it's a bit cheating. The miniatures were painted some time ago, but a hadn't done the shields or the bases. I have been doing a little here and there in between our Danish crusader project.
