Victrix are pleased to announce the release of their new 28mm hard plastic Numidian Cavalry . This is a 12 miniature set packed with pose options and fantastic detail.
The Numidians were from North Africa, around modern day Tunisia and Morocco. They were superb light cavalry and supplied large quantities of horsemen to their… close neighbours the Carthaginians.
Numidian cavalry excelled in skirmishing, hit and run tactics. They would shower their enemy with javelin fire and run away to avoid contact and then wheel around again to pelt the enemy with yet more missiles. They were often used as scouts and in pitched battles would outflank the enemy and wait in ambush.
