The Mercenaries DLC for Hegemony Rome just launched today, so here are the concept art pieces I did for each unit.
First up, The Garamante Spearmen. A unit from modern day southwestern Lybia, the Garamantes were a Berber people of Northern Africa. One of the reasons we included them in Rome was to help diversify the units. Not a lot to play with on this one - almost all my research turned up the same images for what they wore.
Second, The Iberian Swordsmen. These are troops from modern-day Spain, which at the time had a few different cultures, including the Iberians, who would later be conglomerated into the roman province Hispania. These were really fun - lots of variation though it was hard to peg down specifics for the time period. Their sword - the Falcata - is beautiful, and very specific to this area, and now I want one.
Thracian Peltasts! Those of you who played Hegemony: Wars of Ancient Greece should recognize these guys - Peltasts were skirmishers and light infantry for Ancient Grecian - and Thracian - armies. They also have amusing hats.
That's it! Hope you enjoyed.
