Another round of entries into the Assyrian Wars project. Off the painting desk this time are two stands of figures, both light troops.
First up is a nine-figure stand of Wargames Foundry archers from the fine Assyrian range. The Assyrian Army can take in large numbers of archers so another stand is a welcome addition. For Impetvs, this stand would be classified as a 'T' missile stand and may be joined with a stand of spearmen to form a large unit. By the way Impetvs 2.0 is scheduled for release later this month or in January.
Next off the workbench is a skirmisher stand of BTD Assyrian slingers. This time, I decided to keep the shields delivered with the figures rather than swapping out the BTD shields for Newline Designs' cone shields. The slingers are another fine group of figures from BTD.
After having not added any reinforcements to this project for the first nine months of 2018, a total of seven stands of reinforcements have crossed the painting desk since late September. Working on the Assyrian Wars project offered a fun distraction from all of the 15mm figures passing over the workbench throughout most of 2018.
Waiting in the wings is an Egyptian chariot stand as well as work to upgrade the 28m Napoleonic cavalry from eight figures to nine. The final reinforcements from Front Rank are now in-house. Another project having not seen any activity in a very long time is the 30mm ECW project. For that project, 27 Renegade figures for forming a regiment of foote are in work.
