Old Glory Carthaginian Veteran Infantry
This is Old Glory PPC-05 “Libyan Heavy Infantry.” All the spearmen are equipped with Roman mail armor and Roman scutum. The spearmen come in three poses, none of which is especially inspired. One of the poses I really dislike, since the face is severely pinched. The same three command poses are present in this pack as well. The scutum shields are the exact same casting as those provided in Old Glory’s Roman infantry packs, which works well, since Carthaginian troops would have scavenged these from the battlefield. Once again, I used the Old Glory short spears.
These Carthaginians, too, got unbleached linen tunics, but my next unit will probably all wear red. I used three different colors of shields and decorated them with appropriate designs.
