Balearic slingers

These are my first few figures for the Society of Ancients Zama game. I think we are planning to use the Tony Bath rules and I remember from Cynoscephalae that missile troops are pretty devastating so I will have to get some more of these I think.

They are Crusader figures so were very easy to paint and they match my Romans. I painted headbands as spare slings as they carried three slings of different lengths to shoot at different ranges.

Two other people at the club are interested in entering a game and they have quite a few figures so I may not need to paint that many. I will concentrate on Spanish and Celtiberians to start with as I have always wanted a Spanish army to oppose my Romans.

More on Zama this week.
