Neo-Assyrian Sab Sharri













Above are a few photos of a unit of Sab Sharri (King's Men) that I've just finished painting for my Neo Assyrian and Neo-Babylonian armies from the time of Ashurbanipal (687-627 BC), the last great Assyrian King. The figures are a mix of Wargames Foundry (beautiful Perry figures), Hinchcliffe and Eureka. The photos below are of an earlier unit with the same mix of figures, that I painted a few years ago but the photos I posted of them before were terrible. They're quite a nice unit, I even painted the eyes on some of them, and they deserve better photos, hence their reappearance.

  7. Lovely blending of figures again. The Hinchcliff look surprisingly well despite the years.
    Got my copy of Lion Rampant and Biblical adaption. Could imagine above units (instead of recommended 12 man) ok to use with mini dice re casualties.

    1. Thanks Colin. One of the fun things with Chariots Rampant is you can tweak things to suit yourself.
