Sumerian Spearmen of Ur









Here are a couple of photos of some Sumerian spearmen of Ur that I've just finished painting. The figures are a mix of ranges - Eureka Miniatures, Castaway Arts and Wargames Foundry. I'm painting another unit at the moment which are mainly Cutting Edge Miniatures and hope to give all my Sumerians a run in a game soon.

  1. Excellent! I also like the palm trees and the background picture.
    And it's interesting to see that all these miniatures mix very well. Regards, Karl

  3. All three manufacturers mix very well within the same unit. I cannot discern which is which. Nice job!

  5. I love your blog!

    I've been slowly trying to build a Sumerian City-state army made up of Cutting Edge minis; I'm glad to see that these minis mix so well.

    I do have a question though...what method do you use to paint the flesh for yours? I've tried a two or three and just aren't satisfied. I'd appreciate your suggestions.

    1. Thanks Larry, the Cutting Edge figures are superb, if you haven't seen it, check out the Sumer to Sargon blog for brilliant painted armies of these figures.

      I just undercoat them white and use Foundry Flesh 5B with a wash of Army Painter Soft Tone acrylic ink.
