Renegade's Libyan Javelinmen

The 28mm Punic Wars project has not seen much attention in 2015.  In fact, the only other 28mm Ancients passing across the painting desk thus far have been eight of these exact same figures.  The earlier eight Libyans were the first figures off the painting desk in 2015.  As a bonus, I discovered my scribe failed to enter those JAN2015 javelinmen into the Painting Log.  Forty more points for the Painting Tally! 


These eight skirmishers are Renegade Miniatures picked up years ago when Renegade offered great value on their Regiment Packs.  The sculpting on the figures is always nicely done and the figures exhibit excellent facial expressions.  The eight Libyans will be fielded as two skirmisher stands for Impetvs.  Using a flash for the photo, the figures appear glossy.  That is not the situation in person.

  2. Excellent work. I had to admit to being confused about the "renegade' part until the second paragraph...

  5. Good additions; a\re the black strips at the rear of the stands magnets for attaching magnetic labels?

    1. Useful additions, for sure! We have found skirmishers to be quite good at harrassment.

      You are so very close on the black strips attached to the trailing edge of each stand. These cleats are mdf the same thickness as the base. They are not magnetized but are, indeed, used for label display. Before a game, I print off unit stats onto Avery mailing address labels and affix the label to this raised cleat. A magnetized version would certainly be a good idea.

  6. Good to see this project gaining some well deserved wind! The Punic War is one of the real classics in wargaming. Great work on the Renegade minis, do you know if they are back in business again? It seemed as if they went "off line" for a while.

    1. Soren, yes, Renegade appears to be back in production although I have not tested that out with an order, yet.

      Punic Wars is a real classic and a period in which much painting remains. I have a bunch of Celts needing a slap of paint.

      I need to return to the gaming table with Impetvs. It has been far too long.
