Carthaginian army

Post by Strategos69 » Mon Dec 13, 2010 3:58 pm

Finally I post here some pics of my later Carthaginian army. They are a mix of several manufacturers. In fact, as many as I could get. In my blog there are several articles about how they were done and why I chose the colours I did.

Hannibal at Cannae (only one eye left :P)

Balearic slingers, with the three slings they carried and horizontal strips on their clothing.

Gallic cavalry, noblemen with their best arms

Spanish cavalry

More pictures to come when I can get them from the camera.

Just bought my lead mountain for the same army. What sources did you use for uniforms?

Several ones. Here a short list:

Cannae, from Osprey Campaign
Peter Connolly, Hannibal and the enemies of Rome (only used can be found)
Peter Connolly, Rome and Greece at war
Fernando Quesada, Armas de Grecia y Roma
Fernando Quesada, Los antiguos íberos (for Iberians and Ballearic)
The magazine Ancient Warfare, but that depends on the issue.

If you can find a copy I would also recommend "Armies of the Macedonian and Punic Wars" for uniform information. Silius Italicus and Polybius are the two ancient authors that mention anything about the colors that were used.

I add a couple of pictures of Campanian cavalry. It can be used either as part of an allied command with Hannibal's army or a BG of cavalry within his army in Italy. The miniatures are a miss of Essex horses, Xyston Campanian infantrymen and some Old Glory I cut the legs off and resculpted.

Now the camp is ready. The Baueda tents are really good (downscaled so that you can fit more than one, but they don't look tiny). Here you have some pictures:
