Re: 15mm Sumerians

These stands of Chariots and Pikes are for the Gilgamesh-era Sumerian army list. All the figures are by Eureka, except for one chariot officer figure that came from Essex. These figures were designed and painted based on the "war" side of the Standard of Ur, which can now be seen at the British Muse...

Re: 15mm Dilmun, Yemeni, or Makkan Army

Because Dilmun was a maritime commercial hub, I designed the eight stands of Rabble to represent drafted dock workers and sailors from around the region. They are armed with a wide variety of simple weapons and equipment. This includes goat-hide shields, javelins, clubs, throwing sticks, knives, and...

Re: 15mm Libyans

Closer views of some of the stands. The original floppy ears of the dog miniature were filed off and replaced with large pointy ears to make it into an ancient Pharaoh Hound.
