Ptah Division - a work in progress.

Mirroring the Egyptians themselves I'm placing my Egyptian army in 4 Divisions. The Amun Division has already been covered. Ptah is actually the 4th Division and I've put it as the 'levy and Nubians' Division. Originally they were supposed to have just a standard chariot unit but that could have meant leaving the Pharaoh a bit light. On that basis, Pharaoh took the 1st Chariot unit, all the others got bumped up a Division and Ptah finished up with nothing. Seemed too good an opportunity to miss - so Kushite Pharaoh/subordinate King plus Kushite chariot unit painted up.

The Division is quite a bit bigger than this - these are just the recently based or painted units. Most of the rest are finished but not quite accessible at the moment - it's a decorating thing.

The newly painted bits are the Kushite subordinate King (well, at least until 745BC) and the Division's chariot force.
 
  


Every Division has a unit of cavalry 'scouts'. In the case of the Ptah Division  they are mounted on Garrison horses.
 

And the main infantry force consists of Nubian/Kushite archers. Being the last unit based, these are the 'poorer' painted/condition figures in the Division. Others include this lot.

    1. Trouble with chariots is that they are addictive.
