Victrix Libyan Spearmen












Here is a unit of Victix Libyan Spearmen that I've just finished painting and basing. These chaps made an appearance in our Command and Colors Ancients game of the Battle of Zama last weekend but the bases weren't quite finished. I picked up some cheap ($20 a box) Warlord Caesarian legionaries from Alan last weekend at Little Wars and transfers from War and Peace games which actually cost more than the figures, so these will probably be up next.

  5. Wonderful Painting and Basing. As for the shields they look Ace Cool,and Quite Splendid. It`s a pity though that after buying kits one has to spend more money on decals. Beano Boy
