The Iberians (Latin: Hibērī, from Greek: Ἴβηρες, Iberes) were an ancient civilization settled in the eastern and southern coasts of the Iberian peninsula, at least from the 6th century BC. Roman sources also use the term Hispani to refer to the Iberians.
Iberian soldiers were widely employed by Carthage and Rome as mercenaries and auxiliary troops. A large portion of Carthaginian forces during the Punic wars was made up of Iberians and Celtiberians. Iberian warfare was endemic and based on intertribal raiding and pillaging. In set piece battle, Iberians were known to regularly charge and retreat, throwing javelins and shouting at their opponents without actually committing to full contact combat. This sort of fighting was termed concursare by the Romans. The Iberians were particularly fond of ambushes and guerrilla tactics.
This exceptional 12 figure set of 28mm hard plastic Iberian Cavalry has superbly detailed figures and a myriad of additional parts allowing hundreds of options when building the figures. With the addition of the Spanish cavalry you can muster full Spanish and Carthaginian armies in plastic. This set is fully supported by a range of shield transfers and banner sheets from LBMS.-
