Re: Bronze Age Zagros Highlanders

Restraint is for the unimaginative. Wait, maybe I could make a huge camp showing the building of a pyramid with a few dozen workers built from green stuff and....no, must stop myself. As I see you may have noticed Triumph places creatively onerous restrictions on the horizontal dimensions of ones ca...

Re: Bronze Age Zagros Highlanders

Quite a scene you've set, I can almost hear the lamentations of their women.

I do wonder sometimes if this is toy soldiers or your version of storyboarding for your next Hollywood production. Looking forward to the next episode of "The Saga of Sumer".
