** If African or Bruttii FT are used then they can only be half or less of the total FT in the army

Some of the Spanish were trained by Hannibal, although the idea these were trained as FT remains debatable. Those who prefer the FT option may paint Spanish figures as some of the Citizens or allied FT.
