|Sab Sharri - Foundry, Hinchliffe and Eureka|
Here are a few photos of a unit of Sab Sharri (king's men) auxiliary infantry for my Neo-Assyrian army from the reign of Ashurbanipal (668 - 631 BC). These figures are a mix of Foundry, Hinchliffe and Eureka. I'm planning a Neo-Babylonian army to fight it and have quite a mix of figures for both armies with Eureka, Castaway, Foundry, Hinchliffe, Immortal/Warlord, Newline and Old Glory. I've included some photos of a test spearman figure for a unit of Kisir Sharruti (king's standing army) at the end of the post.
On the WAB forum gallery recently there were photos of a Foundry Assyrian army, which is one of the best painted biblical armies I've ever seen:
Unfortunately my efforts will never be this good but it does give me something to aspire to! I'll post more photos of my Neo-Assyrian and Neo-Babylonian armies as I complete painting units. I'll also post separately some photos of the Assyrian reliefs at the British Museum which are very inspiring, if your interested in this period.
