Libyan Tribesman  28mm   mostly metal 

I thought I'd work on a series of  North African Kingdoms from  Successor Era to early Roman Empire  eras.      I've got in mind to do  Libyans,    Massylii in eastern Numidia, and the Masaesyli in the west.  the Mauritanians,  and perhaps the Garamantians  and Kush and some Ethiopians.   
To kick off I've used mostly  Eureka metal figures w significant modifications.   They come from the euphemistically named   Denisovans.., which appear to be basically Australian Aboriginals.   I've added some left over " ostrich feathers"  from an old  high elf  Warhammer kit.  Also added bow and quiver to the female archer,  custom made greenstuff cape to the tribal leader's bodyguard, and a variety of  side arms to many of the soldiers.    1 plastic Victrix Libyan is in orange tunic.  Also 1 Victrix Punic military advisor liaises with the Libyan Chief. The lion cub mascots are also from Eureka Miniatures.   
Fun to make and I'm fairly happy w the end result for my 1st North African Kingdom mini army

Very interested to see some Garamantines. Maybe some chariots? Also distinguishable differences in appearance between the Massyli and the Massaesyli.
