First is the Hittite king resplendent in his silvered helmet and carrying an iron axe.
Archaeologists have found iron axe heads of Hittite origin that they believe were ceremonial or used as a badge of office, as the figure has and axe it seemed appropriate to paint it like iron.

The second chariot with the 3 crew still in the cab and an Egyptian casualty on the base for effect.

The armoured crew before fitting into the cab.
It had been quite challenging to fit the 3 crew into such a small cab, but I'm happy with the results and I think it was worth the effort. The next Hittite chariots are 2 man and will be getting the third crew man stuck on the base.
A few more spear men
3 Chariot runners for the remaining soon to be painted chariots. (What was I thinking when I painted the lime green cloak)
I will be making a start on the crew for the last 3 Hittite chariots later today, then there's 18 infantry and the Hittite contingent will be complete. Then I'll start the Sea People.
