Renegade Libyan Javelinmen

Cutting it close to Saturday's planned Punic Wars' game, two Impetvs stands of Libyan skirmishers made it off from the painting desk and were able to participate in the game.

These skirmishers are Renegade Miniatures that were lingering in The Lead Pile prior to Renegade closing up shop.  Now after more than one year, Renegade has announced that they are once again back in production.  Renegade reinforcements are now available once again.  Very good news for those needing to fill out their collections.  The not so good news is that prices have increased and Regimental packs are not yet available.  Needing more Romans for the project, Aventine Miniatures will likely get the nod over Renegade.

Sculpting is excellent on these Libyans with very little flash.  Facial characteristics are outstanding.  I like these figures and have enough to field two more skirmisher stands if needed.  



These two stands have the honor of being the first figures added into the Painting Log for 2015.

    2. what is your Impetvs game on Saturday casualties report? usually cavalry are first kills.

    3. Quite right! Cavalry on both wings were the first to fall. Only token horse flesh remained on either wing. After that, a meat-grinder in the center. Casualties were near 50% for the loser and not much less for the victor. I will post a BatRep after I get the photos sorted out and piece together the action.

    1. Thanks, Christopher!

      It is good to change things up once in awhile, yes? As noted above, that is snapshot from Saturday's Impetvs game.

      Glad you like the javelin chuckers. I like them too.

    1. Renegade sculpted these guys to look the part of a tough bunch of warriors.
