Having dipped my toe back into the waters of the Assyrian Wars project at the end of September, I decided to add another unit into the painting queue. Actually, figures for two units were placed into the queue. The first off the painting desk is this stand of a dozen Black Tree Design Egyptian spearmen.
First, the sculpting on these Egyptians is superb! Having painted only a couple of units from BTD's Egyptian range, I am quite impressed by what I see. The sculpting is crisp and the poses are good. Sometimes BTD poses are a bit chaotic but these Egyptians look disciplined and ready for business. I can envision fielding a small entourage of Egyptians to fight either along or against my massive Assyrian Army. After almost a year of painting 15s, it feels good to add in a 28mm unit from time to time.
