Here are four more Sumerian battle cars or chariots which we used in our Sumerian game last week. I've just finished basing and photographing them. All crew, chariots and onagers are by Castaway Arts.

Last Monday afternoon Craig came over to my place and we played a 200 point Sumerian L'Arte de la Guerre (ADLG) game - our first game for 2017. We had similar Sumerian armies, Craig commanded the army of Lagash and was the defender, while I commanded the army of Ur and was the attacker. The spearmen of Lagash counted as armed with pavise which added a +1 to their protection but we forgot to apply this through the whole game! It was a hard fought encounter, both armies became demoralised in the same turn but, Ur suffered a greater number of casualties and their commander was killed in the final turn. Thanks to Craig for a fun game.
