Re: 15mm Assyrian Wars: Assyrian camp.

Also, I would like to know your technique for painting the art on the tent. I assume you sketched or used line art for the animals, then added the colors using layering techniques?

Re: 15mm Assyrian Wars: Assyrian camp.

That is outstanding work. You have amazing skill at painting the details. I also like the smaller touches, like having the separate figure stand based as if they are standing on a carpet.

15mm Mitanni

The Mitanni were a people of Hurrian origin who established a kingdom in northern Mesopotamia in about 1500 BC. It was a feudal state led by a chariot-riding warrior nobility. At the height of its power, Mitanni was a rival with the other great states of that region - the Hittites and the Egyptians....

15mm Mitanni Camp

The Mitanni military aristocracy depended heavily on well-trained horses to draw their chariots. This 15mm camp depicts several Mitanni trainers putting their horses through conditioning drills in order to support the resupply needs of the chariot forces. The idea for this camp came from a remarkabl...

Re: Libyans vs. Egyptians, 2200 BC

Thanks again for all the positive comments.

I believe a Libyan army in DBA was 11 stands of "Psiloi" and a Chariot, so a total of 24 figures on the board. This Triumph! version has 64 figures and they are almost all on larger bases, so it does give a more spectacular look.

Re: Libyans vs. Egyptians, 2200 BC

We switched sides and played again. I sent my Raiders directly at the Libyan main body as quickly as possible and used the Hordes to meet the flank march. The Bow Levy were left lingering in and near the camp. The Libyans put their Skirmishers in the flank march but the Horde was tough to beat. The ...

Re: Libyans vs. Egyptians, 2200 BC

Thanks, Deuce! Lessons Learned: The flank march gave the Libyans the opportunity to fight some of the lower-quality troops and distracted the main effort. It also gave them a shot at the camp. Moving as a group with Horde made the Egyptian advance unacceptably slow. Sending the fastest Egyptian troo...

Libyans vs. Egyptians, 2200 BC

My son and I played two battles of Triumph! This week using the Ancient Libyans and the Early Egyptians. The setting was 2200 BC, the time of Neferkare of the 6th Dynasty towards the end of the Old Kingdom. The Libyan forces were nineteen Rabble tribesmen, with two Skirmishers and a Warband general....
