No surprise out from the painting desk today. Nope. More work on the Assyrian Wars project. This time, the Assyrian Army receives recruits of the light cavalry variety. Figures are Wargames Foundry.
Joining the swelling ranks of Assyrians, two light cavalry or 'CL' in Impetvs parlance take their place in the battle line.
Positioned on the base in a swirling motion gives the effect of the light horse archers harassing their foe by keeping a steady rain of arrows upon the enemy. As each warrior unleashes his arrow he rotates back to reload before returning for another round.
Still more Assyrians in the queue including two more heavy chariots mustering out after the refit to a large base and additional of infantry supports.
