North Star Pharoah

Here is my Army Painter version of the wonderful and Imposing New North Star figures Pharoah. Photo does do the model true justice.

Libyan Chief with Amazons

Pushing to the realms of fantasy I know!!! But just had to these figures now at Eureka (Shadowforge). Based on NO historical evidence whatsoever, here we have a Libyan Chief surrounded by fierce female guards. As maiden guard were in Indian armies etc this is not impossible for Libyans and fun base to create. This is for a command base for Clash of Empires

Here we have a larger scale invasion going on from the "sand dwellers" as the Egyptians called them. Time around 1800 BC in Middle Kingdom Egypt. Figures are Foundry(Cannanites) mainly with some Cutting Edge and Castaway Arts. Shields are from Castaway Arts allowing the these guys to represent Amorites who can also be added to Sumerians and Hammurabic Babylonian armies. I would still use them as early Hebrews who have not changed to later shileds.

Hyksos WIP

Thought I would show work in progress for Hyksos army. It is kind of Clash of Empires meets Basic Impetus in army size. Gaming buddies are very much into Clash of Empires and have plenty figures in many periods for large armies. I love Impetus style basing and nice army sizes. Opens up many periods and armies without too much money and painting etc. Agreement is 1000 point armies using Clash of Empires using cutting minimum and maximum unit sizes and break numbers by 50%. Result is fine size army that should still give decent game and easily altered for Basic Impetus if required. This army is pretty close to what I would put on for Basic Impetus. Still looks like an army to me and of course allows some gaming company when I get the chance to game. Figures are all Cutting Edge with a Castaway Arts in there somewhere.

Burmese Command Elephant

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!!!

Hittite Spear

Horns blow frantically and leaders scream to keep the Hittite phlanx in order. Surrounded by Egyptian chariots the men begin lose cohesion as arrows cut them down like wheat. The Hittite chariots must regroup or bloody slaughter will follow!!!
