Carthaginians Set

Carthaginians Set

ZIP File


The North African city of Carthage, founded by the Phonecians, grew to be a major superpower in the western Mediterranean during the 2nd and 3rd centuries BC. The naval and trade superiority brought the Carthaginians into conflict with the Roman Republic, culminating in the Punic Wars, made famous by Hannibal and his Elephants in the second Punic War. Eventually annihilated by the Romans in 146 BC, the Carthaginians faded from history. This set allows for games set during the Roman Republic and the Punic Wars, although the figures can easily be used for any Ancient-era North African game. Heavily reliant on Iberian, Libyan and Numidian mercenaries, the only Carthaginian units were the Sacred Bands of heavy infantry and cavalry. Essential for any ancients RPG or wargame, these 28mm scale full colour miniatures are supplied in two formats and can be assembled as flat, A-frame or triagonal miniatures depending on personal choice. The images are all high-quality computer generated figures and bring an extra level of realism to the gaming table.

This set is also provided as a Powerpoint version for easy creation of custom pages.

I love all of these historical figures. As a history teacher, it helps me make the history come 'alive' for my students. I appreciate the research that has gone into them. [...]

I can't say enough good things about the Arion paper figures. The artwork is glorious, and the inclusion of bi-fold and tri-old figures is a great plus. I wish I could give them more than 5 stars. A stellar effort, which is all I'd ever expect from Ari [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
