Carthaginian Spearmen WIP 2

I can't really take credit for these. Those shield transfers by LBMS really make these figures look sharp.
Holy cats has it been a busy month! My wife and I decided to put our house on the market and buy a new one right now (RIGHT NOW!) to take advantage of a favorable real estate market. That's been a major time sink, but I managed to squeeze in a few painting sessions, enough to get these Carthaginians nearly finished. I still need to do some proper basing, but it was nice to at least hit a milestone with these.

  1. Great looking unit - LBMS transfers certainly are a boon. Best, Dean

  3. Oh question... how long are your spears for these guys?

    1. I believe these are some Warlord spears. I believe the Carthaginians used "long spears" rather than pikes, so I snipped off about 10-15mm from each one. So, longer than the spears my celts and germans use, but not quite long enough to count as pikes.

  4. Great looking Carthaginian spearmen. Are they Crusader figures?

    1. Yep, slowly morphing my Celts into a Carthaginian force, awaiting suitable Roman opponents fro Agema and Victrix (hopefully released this summer).
