Assyrian Chariot #9 Rehab
The last chariot in the long rehab project rolls off the workbench!
This last chariot is the King's chariot adorned with sunshade and leopard skin covered horses. Quite a spectacle of conspicuous consumption.
The King's chariot required more rehab than the others before. The riders were detached with arms missing on a few, one wheel was broken, and the sun shade was in three pieces. To fit into the storage box, the King's ride had to have the sunshade "chopped" making his ride even more customized. Put back together with the standard touch ups, the King and his fleet of nine chariots are ready for battle. Next, plans for painting and fielding a gameable force is in order.
With a large number of Assyrian figures summoned to The Lead Pile in anticipation of this project, time to get out the pencil and paper to draft an army list or two. A group shot of the nine refurbished chariots arrayed for battle is a good idea. That activity I will save for a future post when the game table has sufficient cleared space.
