Today, something a little different for the Assyrian Wars project. That is, my take on a mobile missile stand or kallapani. For Impetvs, the Assyrian Army has an option for one or two kallapani that moves at chariot speed but fights as a dismounted, 'T' missile stand.
I wrestled with the question of how to represent such a weapon platform. Should two stands be fielded one for each mode? In the end, I decided to field one stand for both modes. The stand contains the kallapani battle cart with mounted bowmen along with a half-dozen dismounted archers. For me, this combination looks pretty cool on the gaming table.
Figures are from Wargames Foundry. Enough figures lurk in The Lead Pile to field a second such mobile artillery platform.
