Victrix Libyan Javelinmen













Here are a few photos of some Libyan javelin men which I've just finished painting from the new Victorix plastic set, Warriors of Carthage. There are fourteen figures and I've added two Gripping Beast figures to make two small eight man units for Hail Caesar or one sixteen man unit for Command and Colors.

The GB figures have thicker bases and can be seen in the front rank in the second set of photos below. Both the Victorix and GB are really great figures to paint. I've assembled, undercoated and based units of Veterans and Liby-Phoenician spearmen so I will post photos of these once I have finished painting them.

  6. Wow - these are very cool, Mike. They look cohesive in their red tunics, yet have individuality with their shield patterns and wild hairdos!
