The North African city of Carthage, founded by the Phonecians, grew to be a
major superpower in the western Mediterranean during the 2nd and 3rd centuries
BC. The naval and trade superiority brought the Carthaginians into conflict with
the Roman Republic, culminating in the Punic Wars, made famous by Hannibal and
his Elephants in the second Punic War. Eventually annihilated by the Romans in
146 BC, the Carthaginians faded from history. This set allows for games set
during the Roman Republic and the Punic Wars, although the figures can easily be
used for any Ancient-era North African game. Heavily reliant on Iberian, Libyan
and Numidian mercenaries, the only Carthaginian units were the Sacred Bands of
heavy infantry and cavalry. Essential for any ancients RPG or wargame, these
28mm scale full colour miniatures are supplied in two formats and can be
assembled as flat, A-frame or triagonal miniatures depending on personal choice.
The images are all high-quality computer generated figures and bring an extra
level of realism to the gaming table.
This set is also provided as a Powerpoint version for easy creation of custom pages.
