Dated: June 18, 2008.
Over the last weeks I painted up some of your excellent Assyrians. They will be an army for "Fields of Glory" one day, for which they are based. Until then, here are a few pics of the troops that make up the army. I hope you like them.
Kisir Sharuti Infantry
Allied Infantry Archers
Armoured Slingers (were sometimes deployed together with archers. The archers fired in a low trajectory, while the slingers fired high. Like this, the enemy couldn't find shelter from the projectiles.)
The King in his charriot (Holding up arrows in your right hand, was a popular sign of victory amongst the Assyrians.)
Many thanks to Mr. Butterweck.
