The last of the Numidians, plus a bonus

Well, the last of the Numidians for a while:
Two command stands for all those light horse. Figs by Crusader Miniatures.
Standards taken from the Wargames Factory Numidian light infantry box.
These guys will soon be stepping out against the Romans in the campaign.
Here's hoping this is not the result! Wargames Factory plastics as casualties.
Plus an extra for a change. Quite a few years ago now I happened to be painting a Xyston 15mm Macedonian force for Mike at the Phoenix Club. I noticed that Xyston had just produced a very few 25mm personality figures, one of them being Alexander the Great. I finally got round to painting him after he languished in a box.
Nice to paint something slightly different for a change. I may give him away to some deserving participant at Hydaspes at Claymore in Edinburgh. We shall see.

I finally did a tally of my painting so far this year: 255 foot; 37 cavalry; 12 Battle Camels; and two Indian elephants with crew. Next up: more Romans, plus some bits and pieces for Willie.


  1. Lovely work on these command models.

  2. Lovely work on the Numidian command stands Paul! Those Xyston personalities are superb.

  3. Well done with these beautiful figures...great looking cavalry!

  4. These look very, very good Paul. Love the flesh on the Numidians especially. Does that sound ok? The colour of course chaps!

  5. Hi Carlo, thanks for looking - I was trying to get skin tones that seemed more appropriate for guys who spend a lot of time in the sun. We don't get much of that where I live!
