25 mm Carthaginian Citizen Infantry

Though Carthage was famous for its employment of large numbers of mercenaries in its armed forces, citizens of the state also served. From the look of their armor these four figures would represent relatively well-to-do citizens. They would be responsible for equipping themselves, and a solid bronze cuirass was no small investment.

The manufacturer is Crusader, but since the poses were all extremely similar and not very dynamic looking I have altered the two on the left to look more aggressive in their stance. Shield transfers are LBM, with the exception of the figure on the right. The design on his shield, an emblem of the goddess Tanit, is my own freehand.
