What did you guys think about the Carthaginian Veterans set?
I very much like the sculpting and mix in the veteran set which are ideal for Cannae in the second Punic war and onward.
The unreleased Sacred band could be used for many First Punic war scenarios and early second including including as citizen settlers in the Iberian peninsula and the final days of Carthage.
I would be very happy to see these gentlemen roll into production.
I like them (Carthaginian Veterans) very much. They fit better with my old 25s than do many other sets.
The Veteran set is a great set, but what I find with ancients is that separate shields work best, such as Hat's Imperial Roman Legions. Some poses with shields cast on can sometimes look flat or awkward.
Those are beautiful figures. I painted 3 or 4 boxes. Easy to paint and they looked great when finished.
