My latest capitulation appears to revolve around my burgeoning interest in the Biblical period. Once you begin looking, it is surprising how many bloggers cover this period quite well. After an initial order placed with Wargames Foundry chronicled here, I followed up with the purchase of nine pre-built, second-hand Assyrian chariots.

When the package arrived I opened the box to find a second inner box. All of the models were packaged in this inner container. After opening this second container, I dug through all of the puffed rice to extract the nine chariots. Although the models were packed carefully in an inner box, broken bits still surfaced. What I found was collateral damage among the models. A few broken wheels, unhooked yokes, and detached chariots were the major casualties. Nothing a little epoxy and a touch of paint will not fix.

Excuse me while I begin a little rehabilitation project.
