Babylonian or Chaldean heavy infantry is the last of the units to see completion before the long promised Assyrian Army Pass-in-Review. The light blue shields look good to me.
This fourteen figure stand of infantry are from Newline Designs and represent the second such unit fielded. I like this figure and pose very much. Another unit or two of these fine figures may work their way into the painting queue eventually. Of course, I would need receive a figure resupply.
One advantage to fielding the Babylonians or Chaldeans is that they can see service either with or against the Mighty Assyrians. They will begin duty among the ranks of the Assyrian powerhouse.
Laying the army out on the gaming table, I was surprised at how large this army had grown over the summer. Next time, the army will be put on parade.
