Hammurabic Spear

Here is a fine unit of Hammurabic Babylonian spear.  Spearmen from this period can also be represented with javelin and axe or sword.  King Hammurabi well as giving us the Law Code was a prolific campaigner and conquered all of Mesopotamia.  Enemies would have looked mostly similar.
Chariots were simple rail types and fewer in number compared to later Empires eg Mitanni and Hittites.
I have chosen to give these regulars uniform red kilts to contrast from my Sumerian and Akkadians.  These are all Cutting Edge 28mm.  I do like upright spear mostly.


  1. Brillant, one more time! Painting, colours, bases, decor, all is great!

  2. Very nice bases of spearman Colin!

  3. I would love to know where you got the winged spirits from.

  4. Hi Peter

    The winged spirits are Assyrian from Monlith Designs. But not sure If they are still doing orders.

  5. Marvellous work, congratulations! :)
