Neo-Assyrian Chariot and Little Wars Canberra 2016













Here are a few photos of a Neo-Assyrian chariot that I've just finished painting. The figures are by Eureka Miniatures and the mud brick building is by 4Ground. The close up shots always reveal how sloppy my quick and dirty painting is! Not to worry, there are still plenty more figures to crank out for both Neo-Assyrian and Neo-Babylonian armies.

A quick plug for a one day event being held early next month - Little Wars Canberra 2016. This will be held on Sunday 6 November 2016 at the Vikings Club Lanyon, which is in Heidelberg St, Lanyon. Entry is by gold coin donation with all proceeds going to charity. More information about the event and a list of the participation games be played can be found on the Little Wars website:

Garry, Rick and I are running one of the participation games, The Battle of Gabiene using Command and Colors Ancients (CCA) with 28mm figures. So it you fancy being Antigonus the One Eyed or Eumenes come down and join the fun. Depending on the amount of interest we may run a second game in the afternoon. The CCA Gabiene scenario and 3rd edition rules can be found on the Command and Colors website:

  7. Very nice looking chariot Cyrus! I keep thinking about returning to Biblical themed projects in particular Assyrians and this is a nice reminder.

    1. I have a Trojan army laying in wait and am tempted to begin with each of Mike's Biblical posts.

  8. Thanks Christopher, everyone should have at least one biblical army! The Foundry Assyrians are one of the nicest ancient ranges around.
