ADLG Armies & Models - Punic Wars

Models for the wars between Carthage and Rome

I had previously purchased Irregular Miniatures for DBA armies for the Punic Wars.  However I was a little disappointed with the sculpts so when I decided to expand my collection for ADLG I decided to start afresh with Forged in Battle miniatures (their War and Empire range) as I had seen and liked their WW2 miniatures.
