Numidian Infantry

Did some medium Numidian infantry. I'm gonna do some cavalry and maybe some elephants, and hopefully that will be enough to make a decent Numidian warband in Saga:AoH, if one exists.

Carthaginian Citizens

Did some more Carthaginians. Don't think these guys are gonna be much use on the field of battle in a larger wargame, but I needed something to represent Warriors in Saga. I have three points of them, now, so with my elephants and Velites, I can field 6 points, if I only use one point of Hearthguard. Of course all this is imaginary coz the game doesn't exist yet.

Carthaginian Veterans

Did a bunch of these guys, who should be the top performers of my army. Not sure about all these transfers. They definitely make the army look better, but I feel like I've been painting all the boring bits, and getting someone else to paint the good bits. And my army will look pretty much just like every other Victrix Carthaginian army out there. Otoh, it's too late to turn back, now.

Libyan Javelinmen

Finished these guys. I expect they'll make up a point of levies under Saga: Age of Hannibal rules. I have just bought the Hail Caesar rules, to see how much stuff I need to get a game of that going.

Italian Velites

Did some Italian Velites. Not sure whether these will be covered by one of the Saga:AoH factions, but if not, they'll still be ok to fight alongside my Carthaginians in a big battle game. Not sure what rules I'll use for bigger battles, I'll probably take a look at Hail Caesar.

Carthaginian Elephants

I've decided to make a Carthaginian force to play Saga: Age of Hannibal when that comes out. I will probabaly be able to play a few other games with them, too. I've not done anything with ancients before, so I don't know much about the period. I've also not used transfers before, but decided that they were probably necessary for ancients, so I've been fiddling around with that.

These Victrix elephants are really nice, and I thought that it would be a good incentive to not paint them until I had most of the infantry done. That didn't really work out, but I did paint one Carthaginian veteran mini.

Tidy up the Nursery

My desk finally got to the stage where it was getting hard to do stuff, so I had a tidy up.

Carnival of Chaos 5

I had the idea to do a wagon for my Carnival of Chaos, which opened up into a theatre. But decided, in the end, that moveable parts and wargaming don't really mix, so went for a 'before' and 'after' wagon, instead. It's not quite finished, I've ordered an elephant (to pull  the thing) from Old School Miniatures, which can't be cast until the lockdown is over, and I've ordered some crates to go on top of the mobile one, which will be used to support the stage when it's opened.

The thespian-mutants are from Old School Miniatures.
