'S' Range Assyrians

The army is missing several units, especially the archery units

On the other hand, I also have another unit of 30 of these lying around somewhere.




Photos from Harry's blog show this to have been a four chariot unit. Must ask him where the other one went.

This figure is the same as the Assyrian cataphracts I have but on a diferent horse. As I only have 8 of the others, I might 'borrow' 4 of these, repaint them and put them on cataphract horses to give me two 12 man units. Then again, I might not. Decisions, decisions.

I'm also allocating a unit of 'S' Range Scythians to this army so it will have a very strong light cavalry component.
This is another part army, several units being 'elsewhere' at the moment. Very strong in heavy infantry, I think it will be needing a lot of help from my other Assyrian contingents as regards chariot strength.

  2. Nice models. My favourites are the horse arcers. Look like they are on a parade before their emperor. great.

  3. I admit that I like that pose for horse archers - see my comment on the Egyptian ones! The old Minifigs chariots always seemed easy to paint.
