IBE03 Iberian/Lusitanian Warriors One (4)

Price: £6.50




This product contains four IBE03 Iberian/Lusitanian Warriors One miniatures.


The Iberians were a people that inhabited the Iberian peninsula, primarily concentrated along the southern and eastern coasts. Referred to by the Roman's as the Hispani, the Iberians absorbed cultural influences from the Phoenicians and Greeks. A target for conquest by both Rome and Carthage at differing points in time, the Iberians continued to oppose and intermittently support both states until they were eventually absorbed by the Roman Republic following Carthage's defeat during the Second Punic War.

Iberian infantry comprised of the scutarii and the caetrati; the former were typically heavily armoured and carried scutums, whereas the latter were lightly armoured and carried the caetra, a small buckler. Iberians armaments also included the famous Gladius Hispaniensis, the falcata, straight swords, spears, javelins and an all-iron spear called the soliferrum, or saunion.


Sculpted by Soapy.

Provided unpainted and unassembled. This pack always comes equipped with two falcatas and two angons, and four shields. There is also the choice to field them as scutarii (a choice between Smooth Scutum shields, Winged Boss shields or a mixture) or caetrati (Round Bucklers /w Boss).

Bases are not provided. Caetrati were typically equipped with javelins, however we do not provide javelins with this kit. We recommend using SC56 Lead Spears or SC57 Wire Spears as an alternative.
