Numidian Cavalry: WIP No.1

This past weekend was very enjoyable and productive for me. The new Carthaginian elephant is completely assembled and prepped for painting (wow, that thing is a beast!) and I was able to get a good start on painting the Numidian cavalry unit for my Carthaginians.

The models are by Relic and are extremely nice. The sculpts of the horses in particular are fantastic with their proportions and and poses looking very natural. Most horse models I have seen at this size tend to be chunky with long low bodies, but these horses by Relic are very elegant. These are very enjoyable to paint and the entire unit should be done in a few days and will be an important addition to Hannibal's cause against the Romans.


  1. These are going to be hot. I like the piebald horse.

  2. I love WiP shots! There are looking great AND just like in RL, the Romans are going to hate them. The only answer is for the Romans to go hire (paint) some themselves.

    1. Happily, the Romans have hired some themselves. Now to get them painted.

    2. Aaron, these are the very ones your Romans hired... you may want to check with them again. It is amazing what a bag of gold will do.... ;)
