I'm looking for the general minis if someone want to sell them let me know.

Alternatvely i'd like to know if exists a set of miniatures (from another game or fron a miniatures game or from a collectible one) that i can use in this wonderful game in place of the (rare) general original miniatures.
Thank you to everyone that will answer!

If you browse the images of the game here ni BGG you´ll see some really nice miniatures one member of the forum painted for the game.

I´m using some 15mms miniatures from Xyston and other companies for my hannibal games, you can see some images here (I use them to play Sword of Rome too) but only of Roman troops and generals, not the carthaginians.

I don't really care to use the mini's I got, I could sell them if someone wanted; fair warning though, the sticker sheet I got to mark them is unusable, came like that and I didn't bother to contact VG about it...shoot me a geekmail if you're interested.

I have a set for sale as well. A couple of the minis are broken off the bases and Hannibal's staff is broken, but I guess that is pretty common. Nothing a little superglue can't fix.

thank you at all for your answers!
the foundry minis are too expansive for me (thay are REALLY nice).
I'm oriented toward Xyston minis.

Xyston miniatures are the best 15mms miniatures out there IMHO. Just make sure you´re OK with the scale! If you look at the images, the infantry is based on 1,2 an 5 euro-cts so they´re very small compared to the VG miniatures.

For the carthaginian generals, you´ll have to look other companies, because Xyston doesn´t make them. I´ve used Corvus Belli miniatures for them

So,recapitulating; For the Carthaginian generals i can use Corvus Belli miniatures.

And for Roman Generals I can use Xyston Spartan Generals + Mounted greek generals + Mounted Spartan Generals (mixed)

Sounds it good in your opinion??
