Here are a few photos of some Hittite spearmen I've just finished painting. The spearmen are all Miniature Design Studios figures with Foundry command. I really like these figures, they are based on the illustrations in Trevor Bryce's Hittite Warrior Osprey book and have rather mournful or wistful expressions on their faces. I guess a forced march from central Anatolia to southern Syria might do that to you! All the MDS figures are still available on the Minifigs website and they have some great other ancient ranges too, definitely worth checking out. The back drop photo is of reconstructed walls and tower at the ancient Hittite capital of Hatussa (modern Boğazkale or Boğazköy).
