Judeans for the Assyrian Wars

After switching emphasis from the Assyrian Wars project in November in which only one unit made it across the painting desk, December begins with a unit for the project mustering out early in the month.  What departs the workbench is a first for the project.  That is a stand of Judean infantry.  Another unit for the project is in work and another first.  For the unit on the workbench, the figures are BTD.
For those familiar with the sculpting style of Newline Designs, these 28mm Judeans are immediately recognizable.  Good looking sculpts that fit in well with Foundry's Biblical range.  Good figures at a good price.

Speaking of good price, Sean held an early Christmas sale during the month of November offering a 25% discount.  Already priced reasonably, a 25% discount is an excellent time to fill out some units.  That is exactly what I did.  I few more Babylonian infantry are on the way to the States along with a surprise or two.

  3. Judean people's liberation front or people's front of judea? Lovely looking ancients to add to the vast Assyrian range your building up!

    1. Judeans could go either way, I think. Besides, it provides some variety from all of the Assyrians.

    2. I think they are from the People's Popular Front of Judea, or the Popular People's Front, definitely not the Judean People's Front though...

      Great work as always Jon.

  7. A nice simple but very effective design, and the colours you have chosen really sets them off.
