When I orered my Hussites earlier this year, I threw in some more Numidian Light Cavalry. As my 25/28mm Carthaginian armies have expanded over the years, the contingent of these famously skilled horsemen became disproportionately small. Hannibal sent out the order to recruit more, and they are now ready for action!
I got one Command pack and one regular pack. I think the fellow on the far right is supposed to have a conch shell trumpet or something in his hand.
I'm not sure I like the blue shields on this unit. The turquoise color is lovely, bu it seems too bright for these horsemen; I think I may repaint them black (and leave the blue bits otherwise).
The figures are nicely sculpted, and had little flash.
Nice detail sculpted on the rope holters.
I used the "Officer" figure from the command pack to ad some variety to this second small unit.
Quite dynamic poses! I found surprisingly few manufacturers do Numidians in 28mm; they are notably lacking from the Old Glory range, for example,
I think I may dry brush the hair to bring out some of the detail and decrease the shine from the varnish.
I used the "Goop" for gluing the Javelins, shields, and riders, and I have to say that it worked very well. It seems stronger than the Duco cement as well.
Update: I acted on my inclinations, and also took Phil's suggestion. I painted the yellow shields over with Raw Sienna, and the blue ones with Black. I also dry brushed the hair with CC Hippo Grey.
I then used my index finger to make spots, using Craftsmart Bisque on the black shields and Craftsmart Khaki on the brown ones. I feathered the edges a bit with an old brush with splayed bristles. Much better! Thank you, Phil!
