Assyrian Chariot #2 Rehab

On to the next in a long line of planned Assyrian chariot refurbishments.  Having tackled the first of nine recently, the plan is to forge ahead to refurbish and rebase the remaining eight chariots.
Chariot #2 on the work desk required wheels to be reattached and the yoke to be removed and repositioned.  With a few touch-ups, a Minwax stain and a new, smaller base, this war cart is ready for action.

Having finally overcome the inertia to rehabilitating these models, thoughts are turning towards building two Basic Impetvs forces for a small game.  While the Foundry figures are excellent (the nine chariots are all Wargames Foundry), Newline Designs is getting consideration for building out the foot troops.  Especially with a Christmas sale in progress, Newline represents a very good value.
Two down; seven to go.

  2. Those are looking great. I can't even tell they were ever in a state other than pristine.

  3. Fantastic work, they look great, I've got some newline figures, they're very nice and would go well with foundry I think.

    1. Thank you, Iain! I have a number of Newline Trojans that have yet to see a paint brush. I agree, they are good looking figures and work well with Foundry.
