15mm Libyans

These Libyans are based on the illustrations found in Osprey’s “Army of the Pharaohs” and a wall painting in the tomb of Seti I. The command stand (Warband) and Skirmishers are Old Glory figures. The Rabble stand ( only 18 more to go!) has a Khurasan figure in the middle and two Eureka figures.

Eighteen stands of Rabble. All the conversions are complete and the first coat of paint applied.

The army is complete.

The figures are a mix of Old Glory Libyans, Chariot Libyans, converted Eureka Hawaiians, Essex Aztec spearmen, Lancashire Libyans, and Khurasan Libyans. All figures painted with craft store acrylics and dipped in Minwax Polyshades “Antique Walnut”.

The bases are from Litko. They were covered with a mix of model railroad ballast and crushed up kitty litter. They were dry brushed with craft paints from dark brown to sand color. The tufts are from Things From the Basement.

Total time spent: About 20 hours, including all the conversions.

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. The warrior with the horn next to the hound is armed with a throwing stick.

The warriors are a mix of Chariot, Eureka, Khurasan, and Essex brands. The Essex figure (actually an Aztec warrior) is about a head shorter than the other figures and has no beard, so he is used here as a juvenile warrior being instructed by a veteran.

More of the same, but this does show off how nicely these figures from different manufacturers can blend together.

These Old Glory figures were converted by removing the cast spears and replacing them with straight pins. Some reconstructive work then had to be done with Green Stuff. Finally, the belt and front sheath cast on the figures was cut away and replaced with more visible ones made of Green Stuff. That way they match with the other figures. The beading on the cross belts was done with a very fine tip brush.

Tattoos were done with a black Micron pen.
