Painting Guides for the Macedonian and Punic Wars
Updated 17 Mar 2009
My offering isn't a comprehensive guide but it does cover:
Including Carthaginians and Libyans
Including Iberians, Celtiberians, Lusitanian, Balearics
Both cavalry and infantry.
The Colour of Bronze
Ancient Bronze resembled our modern Brass.
Head, D. (1982). Armies of the Macedonian and Punic wars 359 BC to 146 BC. Wargames Research Group.
The definitive source. My painting guide does not replace Head (1982) as I make no attempt to duplicate his illustrations. All I do is list the colours to use. Where I mention "illustrations" I mean illustrations from Head's book.
