This is the first of 4 units of Carthaginian levy infantry for the Zama Project. These boys, along with the Thureophoroi, will form the 1.6m long Carthaginian second line.
These were generously painted by Greg Privat, and retouched (after unfortunately experiencing a good kicking during the crossing) and based by me .
As an experiment I didn't paint the eyes in on this unit. I'd welcome opinions as to whether they would be better with eyes very lightly dotted in, similar to the Numidians, below.
