Carthage Army – ready to play

The first 1000 points of my Punic Wars army is painted and ready to play. Basing is a simple coat of paint, with sand & grass coming at some future time.  Paint plan is  super simple – block colors as a base, a wood stain dip followed by touch ups in the same base color.  The army list is still a work in progress & has under taken a few changes from my first posts.  The Gallic light cavalry are gone, done in twice by Macedonian spears in as many games by the warband rule.  In their place are more skirmishers and a third Gallic warband.

    That is looking very cool! I have been pondering doing a Roman army with all the sweet new plastics that are out. Do you use these for WAB? I picked up a copy of Field of Glory which I have been picking through. I would like to try both games some day.

      The army is built to play WAB. Romans are next on the list – the two armies will be opponents on the demo table at Adepticon.

    basecoat/dip/touchup is how I’m painting them these days. I’ve dropped and chipped too many figures during play to feel bad about it.

    What are those bases, by the way?

    Bases are by Litko. Most of the Celts are on 20×80 bases – with the spears and shield pointing in every direction, its the only way to get the unit ranked up in time to play.
