Despite a setback of two, my 2020 goal to field a Hittite Army is beginning to show traction. My goal made in early January was to start a Hittite Army in 28mm and finish the year with a dozen units. A dozen units in the right mix ought to be sufficient to field enough force for either an Impetvs or To the Strongest! game.
To lead the army off, the first unit out of the gate is a Hittite three-person chariot with a complement of three javelinmen. All figures are from Newline Designs. As expected from Newline Designs, the figures are robust and good, solid sculpts. A little on the chunky side when compared against Wargames Foundry but the figures from the two manufacturers fit in well together.
A long line of Hittites are waiting in the wings, so expect to see a number of Hittite units parade into the photo booth over the next several weeks. I may throw some other units into the light box for a photo shoot just to break up the monotony of a seemingly endless parade of Hittites. As I put the finishing touches on two units of a dozen each javelinmen, the total count for the army to date climbs to nine. Three more to go and I can check this goal off my To Do list.
