Renegade Libyan Vets

Here are some Renegade Libyan vets with minor conversions. Those of you familiar with the Renegade Punic line know how a number of the minis suffer from some rather strangely distorted neck positioning. So, I've cut off the heads and re-positioned them while adding some superficial helmet detail and a beard to add some variety to a rather static set of poses. The heads are on the larger side, but paint up nicely. Interestingly enough, the regular Libyan infantry and lights have smaller heads that are more in line with Aventine, Relic, and almost Crusader. I've swapped out the Renegade shields with some extra Aventines but have not attached yet as I'm considering re-basing to thinner washers.
An interesting note regarding Libyan/African spears. The evidence points to such spears being about the same height as the infantryman, but with the Renegade figures in particular due to their rather "squat" proportions, this looks odd as evidenced by images on their website. So I've given them shorter spears than their Roman counterparts, but taller than their height (plus, posed as raised off the ground).
