Here are a few photos of a bronze age Sherden warband for my Sea People army. The Sherden or Shardana were first recorded in the 14th century BC and some were later recruited into the New Kingdom army of Ramses II as bodyguards. Their distinctive armour and helmets can be seen in reliefs at Medinet Habu and other temples in Egypt. I posted some photos of Sea People chariots last year.
The unit below represents these Sherden bodyguards while the unit above are just raiders, the Vikings of the bronze age! There is a new Osprey book on the Sea People being published this month (February 2015) which I'm really looking forward to, as the only reference book I have is N K Sandars' The Sea Peoples. The figures are mainly the lovely Perry sculpts by Foundry but the bodyguards below also include quite a few Newline Design figures.
