I just got a Carthaginian army pack from Rapier in the mail and I am in the process of cleaning and mounting the miniatures on popsicle sticks before under coating. When compared to Heroics and Ros they are works of art, and I have high hopes on how they will look when finished.
The pack consists of,
- Mounted General and Standard Bearer
- 54 African Infantry
- 54 Spanish Infantry (Caetrati with swords)
- 36 Gauls
- 48 Numidian Skirmishers
- 18 Punic Heavy Cav (with front barding?!?)
- 15 Spanish Light Cavalry
- 12 Numidian Cavalry
From what I have read I would consider the Caetrati skirmishers, Scutari with Celtic shields and spears would probably be more appropriate as medium infantry. As such I am not to happy with the ratio of the various miniatures in the pack, I would have prefered a different mix, a more varied mix of skirmishers (slingers?) and more heavy/medium infantry. Not that it matters much since I will have to get 10 times as many miniatures in the end but as an “army pack” its a bit weird :).
