These leaves may be green when they are first used as a roof, but it only takes a week for the plant cells in the leaves to die and the chlorophyll to disappear, turning the roof a dry yellow color.

Good morning or afternoon;

-I think the buildings with freshly laid green leaves seem prettier than with dry yellowish leaves, but you can change in future if you wish.:)

 

Sorry for the inconveniences*

The material characteristics of bamboo limit its use, either made of thinner bamboo can throw javelins or light spears, such weapons are often disposable, and there is no need to care too much about the strength of the pole.
Either use very thick and long bamboo to make a pike for both hands (the length of this type of bamboo pike used in China is generally more than 5 meters), but it cannot adapt to the dry environment.

Yeah we agree. 

I also find it weird to see bamboo spears among North-African people in a dry environment.

2 cosas. Entiendo que te pueda gustar el color pero no se ve bien por qué no está puesto de manera realista.

Segundo es un clima seco, no tiene sentido ponerlo verde. Si quiere poner algo bonito no se te olvide agregar siempre telas, es un truco darle más variedad con telas.

Excavating here in the 1960s, Daniels found a group of Garamantian buildings at the core of the site, and these, unlike their mudbrick Arab successors, had been built of quality ashlar stonework. At least two buildings were monumental. One, a temple, approached via a broad set of steps and a columned porch, may have been dedicated to the Libyan desert god Ammon – best known from the famous oracle site in the Siwa Oasis, where Alexander the Great, visiting between campaigns, became convinced he was the son of Zeus

Maybe this could serve as reference for temple since they currently lack one.

Although i could not find any reconstructions of it and it is possibly a bit late (Article says Garamantes used stonework in the Period between 1 and 400 AD)

Petroglyphs of warriors from the same article

Garamantian cavalry. A rock carving from Zinkekra in the Wadi Ajal showing an armed horseman – he appears to carry a weapon in his right hand and a shield in his left – standing beside his mount. This ‘horse’ or ‘caballine’ style is thought to date to the 1st millennium BC. Light cavalry who operated as raiders, guerrillas and skirmishers were probably central to Garamantian warfare.

Garamantian infantry. This rock carving, also from Zinkekra in the Wadi Ajal, depicts a foot soldier. He appears to wear a short tunic and a plumed helmet or headdress. He is armed with a round shield and javelins, one of which he is throwing, while he holds the other in his left hand.

Possibly it could be two plumes worn in the Lybian style?
