Finished these up yesterday. This is the Scholtz (Berliner Zinnfiguren) Numidian Cavalry set # 100/28/4. I made one modification, substituted the command figure from Golberg's "Carthaginian Strategists" for the rather bland officer of the original set. In general, I prefer all the figures in profile but I think he works better as the CO than the original on account of the his horse not having the full bridle.
Very impressive - beautiful figures !ReplyDelete
Excellent work !!!! Now if I could only find some Boer War figures in Flats I would join in the fun ... JeffReplyDelete

Thanks for the kind words, gentlemen...Boer War flats ? No doubt they exist although off the top of my head I can't name any editors who would offer them.
I like them! Love the leopard skin cowls! DeanReplyDelete
Yes, they're probably somewhat fanciful compared to current historical theory about how Numidians were dressed or equipped. But for my own purpose, as a generic light cavalry unit (and not necessarily belonging to a Carthaginian army), they work just fine.
Thanks Steve I'll keep looking ... JeffReplyDelete
