Numidian General

When I got to the end of painting my Numidians, I found I had one body left over. I say "body" because it was lacking both a head (transplanted onto a late Roman archer) and a right arm.  However, I had plenty of spare arms and heads from the Victrix plastics set of Numidian infantry. A little surgery gave me a rider with a raised sword and a helmet.

I then needed a horse. None were immediately forthcoming but then I happened upon a 25mm scale unicorn in my box-of-things-that-might-be-useful-for-Glorantha-one-day. Yet more surgery, this time of a veterinary flavour, produced a suitable mount.

Married together with a little Green Stuff and superglue we end up with this chap:


I've called him Arabio after the last of the Numidian kings. I figure he can serve as a commander of light horse in future games of To The Strongest!

Cheers, Michael!

Super! Always very satisfying to use up a final or damaged mini. Especially satisfying when both. :-)

Cheers, Simon! Yes, I'm very please to have a box of usable Numidians. All I need now is some Republic Romans to use against them. I'm wanting to have a go at using small-unit Maniples in TTS!

Simon Miller said...

Republicans... what range are you thinking of?

I quite like the look of Agema. I know you aren't keen on plastics but I like the way they would give me a balanced force of the four infantry types in plastic and the ability to add characters in metal.

I'm not a big plastic user, but they are fine minis. Greg's a nice chap, too.
