Garamantes: Raiders and Traders from the Desert

July 11th, 2013

Available now and fully in-stock!

A mysterious people known to the Greeks, Persians and Romans the Garamantes both raided and traded with these great Empires.

This is the perfect army for someone seeking a more obscure and curious Classical Era civilization to model or war-game with. The Garamantes make excellent allies and auxiliaries for Rome and Persia, adding a dash of Saharan-style.

Trey Corbies is pleased to present this line. Another first for our little niche conquering company. The Garamantes have yet to be represented in life-like yet highly portable 15mm till now.

This line has many poses and variations with three distinct African shield types. Variety is guaranteed. Please view the gallery.

Available is useful small packs or as a DBA 2.2 army pack.

Stuff is fixed.

March 3rd, 2014

Hi all, Sorry about the time lag and dodgy communications.
We are back on the airwaves and all outstanding orders have been shipped.
Had a one-two punch of computer and website issues that made things more fubar than usual.
But the old IT guy (me) has been sacked and replaced by a new IT guy (me again..) and we are now proudly offering our niche-tastic products to the world.

 

Thanks for hanging in with us.

Corbies go the Mayday!

April 11th, 2013

I am pleased to announce Trey Corbies will be present at Mayday 2013 in Edmonton.

For the first time, we will be openly attending a gaming convention.

We will be offering painted and unpainted Trey Corbies armies for sale.

I am competing in the DBA tournament as well. The theme is ‘Enemies of Rome’, that is no Roman armies, just their many varied opponents.

So as an open ploy of commercial enticement I will be using either…Trey Corbies Scots-Irish Warrior Women or Garamantes as Early Libyans (d) list.

I’m pretty excited as here in Alberta were we are located, there are two only major urban centres and they are three hours apart. So the convention circuit is lengthy, unlike the UK or East Coast US. Indeed it is bi-polar.  Mostly polar given our April weather…

Cheers,

-Sean

Garamantes: pix up.

October 8th, 2012

Slow to move fellow that I am, I have finally gotten some pix of new Garamantes line the raw-ish flesh. These are the figs, I’ve prepped them with a grey base and a wash to bring out the detail.

Garamante Archers, loading and firing.

 

Please have a look at the pose variations, combine this with three distinct shield types and you are guaranteed an individualistic desert swarm!

Garamante Warriors, pose variants.

Garamantes Horsemen.

We are also including (for this line only) cast spears.

I’ll be posting pix of the rest (dogs, slingers and shields) shortly.

Any questions? Drop us a line.

Thanks for looking!

When Garamantes Attack.

September 5th, 2012

We are now fully stocked and ready to roll with our latest line.

The Garamantes warriors arrived from over the pond and they look gorgeous. We’ve made sure there are at least eight distinct variants in the sculpts and three shield types. Each warband will be unique.

Garamantes: Size Comparisons

Comparison Study I

Comparison II

Xyston Hoplite, Trey Corbies Garamante Warrior, Old Glory 15's German Warrior, Trey Corbies Garamante Warrior and Essex Viking displayed for size and stature comparison.

Thanks to all how have been interested in my mad little project!

Sales have been quite more than expected. Cheers.

Here’s a quickie size comparison with some spare figures I have had around for this purpose.

As you can see we tried to make our figures fit in the middle of the currently produced 15mm spectrum. We believed that many folks would seek to use these guys as auxlia units for their forces. Any Roman army in North Africa needs some desert sorts in their ranks to add dash and colour.

Where are the Garamantes from?

April 23rd, 2012

I realize they’re a little obscure in popular culture or even wargaming and miniature circles. As such I’ve prowled the dusty archives of the internets for this map.
