The Assyrian chariot rehabilitation project continues with chariot #4 rolling off the painting desk. Like the other three chariots before, the yoke needed to be removed, flipped and then reattached to the tongue. One wheel required reaffixing to the axle and an arm or two needed reattachment. After staining and a new base, voila!
The Foundry Assyrian chariots are a wonder and the foot figures are just as excellent. Having moved these chariots from the To Do One Day pile over to the To Do Now pile, has me motivated to begin an Assyrian Army project with a sense of purpose. Before I was not quite sure what would become of the box of broken chariots. Would they languish in a box forevermore? No! Even though some would suggest I possess way too many projects, a Biblical project is not one of them. With such a growing core of nice chariots, it would be shame not to use these models as a nucleus for an army or two. More Foundry Assyrian lead is winding its way to the house.
Four chariots down, five to go.
