Yep. Assyrians continue to mobilize off from the painting desk. This Wargames Foundry foursome is classified as Guard Cavalry. To my eye, the only difference from the "regular" Assyrian cavalry is that these guardsmen wield both spear and bow.
As expected from Foundry, excellent sculpting and good poses. Hopefully, these warriors will strike fear into the hearts of their enemies. The Assyrian Army's cavalry arm now counts six medium cavalry stands in its Order of Battle.
While painting Assyrians is quite enjoyable, at some point attention must be redirected to other projects. When will that break point occur? Soon I think but not yet. One or two more Assyrian units have worked their way high into the painting queue. When I do make the switch, to which project will I turn?
With a number of games crossing the table of late including a sound thrashing in a C&C Tricorne rematch at the hands of Kevin and detailing of a Fox's Gap replay, work at the painting desk has slowed. One question that I often wrestle with is how my limited hobby time is allocated to a number of competing interests. Lately, gaming seems to have gained the upper hand while output at the painting desk slows. Researching and planning the Fox's Gap scenario took time away from painting too. A new aeroplane for Canvas Eagles was started. Is there an optimal mix between these competing pulls on my time? I think not. The best I can do is pursue the facet of the hobby that currently grabs my attention so as not to fall under the spell of indecision and inaction. The hobby is a bit like juggling. How many balls can I keep in the air at one time?
I have left myself a few questions to answer. Until next time.
