Numidians

Postby Lord Marcus » 30 Mar 2014, 21:33

I have made:

obvious:

Numidian light shield infantry
" " slingers
" " bowmen
" " hoplites

Conversions:

Unarmored hoplites
levy pikemen (macedonian or otherwise)
Unarmored hastati
North African auxilary infantry
cretan archers
celtiberian infantry (unarmored)
numidian light horse (in combination with the celt cavalry and newer horse sprues)
numidian noble horse (same kits)
Numidian noble shield warriors (roman or viking torso's, numidian heads and weapons, greek shields)
Generic ancient mob
hittite warriors (I saw an artists rendition of a hittite wearing a blue feathered headdress and weilding a club, combined a numidian body with parts from the zulu kit)
celtic slingers
celtic unarmored warriors from the medditerranian fringe (thus, no pants)
spartan youth hoplites (same parts as the unarmored hoplites, but with red tunics)
carthaginian infantry
carthaginian infantry in mail armor (converted with viking torso's)
African/nubian warriors/spearmen/bowmen/etc (combine with the zulu kit)

And i only have 2 boxes to my name. need more to fill out units!

To show off, my Hastati:

Nice Republican Romans.

Don't forget:

Arabian nomads (using persian head-dress)
Kushite irregulars
Poorer persian subjects (using Persian bits)
Greek psiloi
Persian Peltasts (again Persian bits)

Obviously my list is based on my current project ongoing.

Fantastic kit.

I assumed persians would be wearing some form of pantaloon's because of blowing desert sands. Same with arabians.

OMG.. as 'home made' Early Roman's these are simply GREAT!
At first quick glance I was thinking "really nice roman aux , if only WGF had the proper shields for him".
"Then" I read and realized, 'not aux' but simply early Rep. Roman. Again Great!

I have said it before. I think the Numidian set is going to be 'one of' the Best Sellers for WGF due to the sheer versatility of the set.
Now while I havnt done the historical research, Im betting using Numidian bodies + weapons + Zulu heads and the closest appropriate shields you can find and 'bam'.. youve got some great 'proxy' Nubian warriors.

I cant wait to see these guys painted and based. Very 'hi-five' Marcus
Im also curious about how your basing them, or is that just a 'work' tray there setting on right now.

Ha! They are glued to the black bases. no basing material applied yet. the black bases are magnets, the tray is steel. Actually nubians (and indeed most north african tribes and especially arabians) wore pants as far as i have found. Most likely to protect the "valuables" from windblown sand. As such i will be using persian bodies as the basis for those, but i will be mixing in numidian bodies for variety. and yes, i have done a test nubian using a spare Numidian body and zulu parts, and yes it works great.

You can also do full early imperial auxilaries as well with WGF kits. i have an example test model made up. I also have celtiberans, etc. All will be shown in my painting blog in the painting forum later tonight or tommorow.

Basing material will probably be added when i have a decent amount of stuff painted.

great models. I am going to use the numidians with slight mods to represent the hillmen of Rhudaur for my One Ring RPG.

Time to resurrect the thread, for several reasons:

1. tonight I will be posting new pictures of painted conversions.

2. what do you all think of the numidians stacking up against the unarmored ancients releases by other companies. comparative review, lets say

3. I need a single numidian body, no arms, no head, just the body piece. I don't want to buy a whole sprue as that would throw off my model count. If anyone would like to trade for bitz, please let me know! :)
