I'm thinking of getting into saga with age of Hannibal and just wondered if the victrix carthagans and republic Roman boxes would be suitable? Is it varied enough to make warriors levy and hearth guard out of the one box ?
Or I could use the new clash of spears boxes? I don't know saga rules yet so I'm not sure exactly what I need. Or can anyone suggest a cheap way of building a plastic warband for saga Hannibal?

I used the same Victrix boxes
If I were to start again I would use 8-12 of the 24 Carthaginian veterans with Roman bits as Triarii and do 8 of the Romans as Latin allies for Carthage (build as Triarii but different coloured tunics).

Thanks. What did you do for citizen warriors ?

I used the guys in lamellar armour with round shields. The only citizen cavalry are hearthguard, I used Victrix Macedonian cavalry. For other mounted troops I used Iberians and Numidians
