First here is a picture of the entire army, lined up ready for battle.
That is 7 units, or what amounts to 2 sets of Caesars Biblical Era Libyan Warriors. I decided to paint them up like is shown in Osprey´s Ancient Armies of the Middle East, and Osprey´s Armies of the Pharaohs. Or at least i used those pictures for inspiration, along with the box cover.
First off we have two units of Bowmen:
I decided that it would be easy for these Libyans to obtain red dye, as well as yellow dye, but that their main clothing would be skins, or leather. So most of the units are are painted in red or brown colors.
Next up some warriors with swords, that have capes:
The feathers are supposed to be ostrich feathers. With alittle imagination I hope they look like it.
Then we have some warriors with spears.
Curiously, the set only provides one pose of these.
All weapons i assumed were bronze so they have been painted accordingly. As one of the Osprey books dryly remarks, attire was kind of minimal. The next warriors are completely naked, save for the leather phallic sheath.
In the last picture, you will note that one of the figures has a cape. This is my general, or tribal king, if you fancy that word better. I have made a solo picture of him here:
As can probably be seen: I am not a great painter, when it comes to small details. I am more of a paint-up-a-unit-a-day kind of guy. Though I would like to think that I am better than the tribal king here shows. But then again, this was some time ago. So perhaps I have become a better painter since then. One can only hope.
