Elamite Foot guard

Here is my representation of Elamite guards. I feel it likely that such a unit could appear in NeoElamite armies during the Assyria wars. In reliefs only foot archers appear which were likely to be the majority of the army. I used some of Victrix plastic Carthaginians mainly adding Assyrian style shields and creating some Urartian style helmets which were in use all over the Near East. I chose mixed colours as no actual evidence of clothing colours available for Elamite. Did couple of off white/buff tunic as done by Angus McBride. This unit is the start of my To The Strongest army to face Assyrians. These rules allow nice impetus size units and basing freedom in the grid system.

  6. Thanks guys. Looking to keep archers as main part of army but may put these as line spear and do heavy Urartian style guard.

  7. Going outside the box on planning and execution of these figures is very well done.
    Wonder how many choose not to do an army due to lack of perceived miniatures avaliable to represent an army. Your imagination in choice of figures and shields is stunning on a widely neglected army that was a major opponent of the Assyrians.
