Hittites

After spending a year in the land of Canaan I finally moved to Ancient Anatolia, the land of the Hittites.
When I first decided to collect a Biblical period army in 28mm it was the Hittites that first drew me in and not just because the minis have a hair line like mine!
I have painted the first 6 spear men in a week or so which is pretty quick for me but I'm not quite sure that they work, I wanted them to look completely different to the Canaanites, I also wanted them to look quite austere as befitting the harsh conditions of their homeland and their strict law code and I'm not sure I've pulled it off, so I'll see what the next batch look like and then decide.
Until then here are the 6 completed spear men for your perusal.
Cheers

Canaanite King

Hello again, I have to report that there wasn't much painting going on over the past few weeks due to the World Cup being on the telly and I've also made a start on clearing out the garage and decorating it, in preparation for turning it into a workshop, so painting has taken a bit of a back seat.
I have though finished the Canaanite Kings chariot, to lead the Canaanite contingent of the army, and the last 4 Sea People archers, this brings the figure count to 6 chariots and 62 infantry, worth around 145 points in DBMM, or about half an army.
