On display today are two units for the project. The first is a four figure BMU of Assyrian mounted cavalry from Wargames Foundry. I have painted a half-dozen of these BMUs thus far and each quartet is a pleasure to paint.
The second is a three figure stand of Egyptian mounted scouts also from Wargames Foundry. With a small Egyptian contingent present for duty, it is time to add a scouting capability to the cavalry-pour Egyptians.
Looking over at the photo box, four infantry units and one chariot are awaiting their turn for a photo session. About that pledge of fielding a Hittite Army this year, I better get started if I expect to stick to plan and field a dozen units this year. Pushing a couple of infantry units into the painting queue to begin this project sounds just about right. Ease into it gently. First, I need to dig out the figures, clean them up, and then hit them with a coat of primer. Hittites will be on the painting table soon, very soon.
