|Mycenaean Chariot and chariot runners - Old Glory chariot and Redoubt chariot runners|
I've made slow progress with my Mycenaean army so far and have only finished a chariot and some archers in recent weeks. Here are a few photos of these figures. Painting chariots and putting them together is usually quite fiddly and time consuming - I'm working on another three at the moment. I'm also finding progress with the spearmen slow and looking at the Mycenaean list in the Hail Caesar Army Lists: Biblical and Classical (p.16) I think I'll opt for mixed units of spear and bow. There is 75% + requirement for non-skirmisher infantry (ie medium infantry) and chariot units really do need screening and support from a small unit of chariot runners. I've got quite a few photos of Minoan/Mycenaean sites we've visited in Crete and Greece in 2009, including Knossos, Phaistos, Agia Triada, Mycenae and Tiryns, so I'll include some of these in future posts.
