28mm – Gripping Beast – Carthaginian Spear Men & Numidian Cavalry

Not everything can be renaissance or fantasy… i also was commissioned to paint these ancient Carthaginian troops, mainly veteran spear men by Gripping Beast. I used shield transfers by Little Big Men Studios, you need to cut them in two parts, so it’s a long work. Figures are correct for their purpose. Some flash need to be removed, but nothing to be scared.
About the Numidian Cavalry i tried a darker skin colour, a total failure as you can see. I worked horses with airbrush, saving some time, although was complicated retouch them with brush. The shields also use Little Big Studios transfers. To use them in not flat shields you need some work, and result is not so good. But looking them at middle distance, they look good.
There is one extra figure who comes from a separated Carthaginian Allies pack, which i will end soon, as well as some other reinforcements for Carthage.
