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.
