|Sumerian battle car - Castaway Arts|
I thought I'd post some pictures of my Sumerians for a change of pace and period. I've got two early Sumerian armies, one from the city of Lagash and the other from the city of Ur, that I've been slowly painting up over time. I've posted pictures of the Royal Guard of Lagash before on this blog - http://satrapminiatures.blogspot.com.au/2011/06/sumerians.html.
I've planning armies of two divisions about 300 points for Hail Caesar. I've already got most of the figures, a mix of Castaway Arts, Cutting Edge, Eureka, Foundry and Newline but will get some more battlecars when Cutting Edge release their range later in the year.
Under the Hail Caesar lists (pp.9-10) the battlecars or onager chariots '...because of the ferocious ill temper and legendary intractability of the wild ass' roll a blunder on 11 or 12 when giving orders to the unit or any division they're part of! I'll post photos of more Sumerian figures, as well as photos of Sumerian artifacts and weapons from the British Museum and Istanbul Archaeological Museums shortly.
