The 30 Numidians I'm working on at the moment are taking forever to paint, so in the meanwhile I thought I'd show the wing of 36 Numidian cavalry I painted last year (the pic is clickable). These are just painted to a good tabletop standard; I'm more concerned with getting an impression of mass, than a perfect paint job.
The closeup above shows the 12cm wide base I've adopted for light cavalry, so that I can get a better impression of movement. The idea is that the riders are coming forward on the right, presenting their shielded side to the enemy and then turning away on the left.
The figures are a mix of Foundry, Crusader and A&A. Just after I finished them last year, I dropped a box of 30 on the stairs; I was rather cross! I managed to get them looking OK, again, in the end.
