Victrix have put together another amazing looking plastic set for anyone wanting to fight in the annuls of ancient history. See what you think of Hannibal’s Carthaginian forces as he brings together his own Veteran Infantry alongside Citizen Soldiers and Libyan Skirmishers to fight the might of Rome…
As I mentioned they give you one hell of a huge boxed set of miniatures allowing you to make sixty two (yes, that many) soldiers. That’s a frankly insane amount of plastic warriors but if you’re looking for a massed army then this is clearly the way to go for your Carthaginians.
When you see the models ranked up like that you can’t help but fall in love with the idea of playing some massive ancient battles. I think these Carthaginian soldiers look awesome and the plastic kit seems to be nice and versatile with plenty of detail too. A nice array of armour choices, weapons and of course a command set that looks heroic are on offer.
Even the more lightly armoured troops are looking superb and with plenty of dynamism to their poses too. I think it would be awesome to see what kind of colourful army you could put together with their ragged and worn out tunics matching up against the gleaming bronze of the Carthaginian veterans.
We talked about the lure of ancient historical wargaming a few Weekenders ago now and I still think it could be a really fun experience to give it a go.
What do you think of this mass of plastic?
