I know it is not chariot period but did not want to start another blog. The next best thing on a wargames table has to be elephants. Here is one of the new Curteys new 28mm Medieval Burmese. Great start to an interesting new range. Burmese armies had sometimes had 2000 elephants in their armies!!!

This next Impetus style base is based on pictures from Ospery "Soldier of the Pharaoh". Figures are Cutting Edge and dogs Black Hat(too big I suppose) adding a little character to the base. These figures offer an interesting change the more commonly seen New Kingdom Egypt figures.

Here is nice battle ready army of Akkadians. Looking at the those 3 captives in 2nd photo I don't think taking prisioners is an option. Add another spear unit it can be a full basic impetus army that looks good without costing a fortune. These are alll Cutting Edge with Bears Den bull/sacrafice viginette.

Here is an Impetus style base of Akkadian archers sporting the powerful composite bow. These can also be Mitanni or Hammurabic Babylonia bowmen also.

This amazing model (28mm) from Cutting Edge really looks great. Fantastic detail especially on the scale armour. These really were to the knight of thier day armed to the teeth. Suitable of course for Cannanites and Syrians etc. Untrained levy often shieldless must have been very worried to face them.
These were the best of nobel warriors leaving enemies no choice but copy arms and tactics or face destruction. Again done with block colours and Army Painter.
