Ancient Greek/Carthaginian Camp

The last ingredient for my Carthaginian army this weekend. I need a camp and the rules are pretty liberal on what it can be (even the base size is a ide range). I chose the smallest base possible 40mmx80mm and started filling it with stuff. I started with a Greek style tent from Baueda Wargames,…

Anglo-Danish Hearthguard – Dane’s Axes

Again, these have been sitting around waiting for me to base with static grass, but now they’re done and there weren’t any shields. Yeah! Most of the colours are the same as for the Anglo/Viking Warriors. However, I made the following tweaks to the common elements Chainmail, Helmet & Axe Blade: Base: Oily Steel (VMC…

Anglo/Viking Warriors

My Saga (Viking Age) army is Anglo-Dane and their warriors . However, there is not a lot of difference between some of the figures for the different factions so I can also use these as Anglo-Saxon or Viking (and probably others too). I haven’t given them a consistent colour scheme as it doesn’t really fit…

Carthaginian Army

The elephants I just posted represent the last major piece of this army! It’s been months in the making, much of it procrastination, but I’ve got a full ADLG army with a few options. You actually might notice something missing: my camp. I had finished it, but I experienced my first bout of frosting with…

Elephants

I’ve got a pretty simple rule for list building Ancient Armies: take the maximum number of elephants. I don’t think this method is the best, but I like elephants and if a list can taken them then it really should. The ADLG Carthaginians can take 3, so I painted 3 elephants. Body: Base: NATO grey…

Carthaginian Heavy Spear

Some actual Carthaginians for my Cathaginian army! These have been a bit tedious: 48 miniatures all exactly the same. I didn’t do any fancy shields as the surface has significant curvature and I’m not comfortable enough in my free-hand on such a tricky surface. To get these done quickly I mass-painted them on sticks (you…

Spanish Scutarii

More non-Carthaginians for my Carthagenian ADLG army. I’m keeping to mainly reds for this army, but I’ve used a slightly different red to most of the others (a slightly deeper red). That coupled with the shields helps them stand out from the others. Body: Flesh – Base: Medium Fleshtone (VMC 70.860) Flesh – Wash: Sepia…
