Work continues on the Assyrian Biblical project with the disembarkment of two stands of Assyrian slingers from the painting desk. The figures are Wargames Foundry and listed as Auxiliary (Chaldean) slingers. I suppose that means that these Chaldeans could fight either for or against the larger Assyrian Empire. I bet they see action on both sides of the fence.
The figures are based in foursomes on skirmish sized stands for Impetvs. This basing scheme should also work for To the Strongest when I get around to giving that set of rules a try. First, I need to make a gridded game mat on which to regulate the game. Something I do want to try especially considering all of the interesting BatReps found and enjoyed.
More Assyrian units are in work with the next to debouch from the painting desk to be a nine figure stand of Assyrian Auxiliary archers. After that, a unit of mounted archers, foot guard to accompany the King's chariot (yes, that means rebasing the chariot!), and a foot unit of Babylonians. These planned additions should suffice to take me deep into August.
