'S' Range Assyrian army - more or less completed...

There's still a couple of units to sort - a light infantry archer unit, a few 4 horse chariots, more Hordes and some heavy infantry spears. However, this is basically the completed thing.

Most of the units have already been shown but this is the first time I've managed to put them together as an army. They cover a 4' frontage here, so I don't think I'll ever be able to do a 'Grand Review' covering these, my Garrison Assyrians and the assorted ones that head this blog.

These two show the whole army lined up

The right flank going into the centre. The 2 horse chariots are ones I've done. One thing about the chariot force is that crews are a mix of Garrison and 'S' Range.  Some also have Garrison wheels. The middle 2 horse chariot is my 'Early' Assyrian general.
 The heavy chariots are in the centre. I used the 'S' Range cataphract horse to pull them - still got another 4 to do. I've split the Scythian light horse unit into 2 for these photos - I have got another unit of these but they have been allocated to the Persian army.
 Chariots on the left flank are a mixed bunch. Starting from left to right, the first 3 are ones I did. In the middle are the 3 that came with the army. These have not been modified and I tried to paint the rest of the 2 horse chariots in the same style. The extreme left flank are ones that came with the army but were not painted by Harry - see here.

Hopefully I'll be able to sort out and photograph more 'complete' armies over the next few months.


  1. An absolutely awe-inspiring line up, Rob. Congratulations!

    1. Credit where credit's due - apart from most of the chariots that goes to Harry Pearson.

  2. This is splendid Rob, absolutly splendid...and very tempting! A wonderful army!

    1. Always preferred the Minifigs Assyrians and Egyptians, Garrison better on Greeks, honours even on Persians.
