NKE and Libyan war

NKE and Libyan war

Ancient Egypt comes under attack form angry tribes of Libyans looking settle in the more fertile lands of the Nile as their own land become more arid.
Here a unit of archers foolishly allows themselves to cut off from the main force.  The commander screams at the men to loosen off arrows like rain.  The trumpet man desperately signals for help. As the Libyans close in for close combat death on will be their only fate.

North Star NKE Comparison

Here I have placed North Star alongside Cutting Edge  and Foundry mix.

North Star Egyptian Bowmen

Finally I have got round to painting up the North Star NKE bow done as usual Impteus style and Army painter.  Did have issue dusty/whiteout varnish though!!!
The base skin is too light and should have stuck with usual dwarf flesh as base tone even though in reality is to light but looks good.
Love the heft and character of North Star. Put some Cutting Edge with Foundry viginette side by side. Although North Star much bigger they look ok in separate unit. Bowmen for Cutting Edge are best for mixing with other ranges.

Babylonian Army Assembled

Gathered together my Hammurabic Babylonian for Clash of Empires battle(around 2600 points).  Quite a bit painting to do it seems.  As I am used to looking at Impetus size armies... this one seems big.  In the second picture Hammurabi is on foot beside his men to show he will not run away in a chariot.  Chariots were limited at this period anyway.  Majority of figures are Cutting Edge with some Foundry and couple of Castaway Arts

More Sumerian Foot Comparison

Here are some more shots.  The bowmen are Cutting Edge Gutian/Highlanders.  Although more petite, in separate unit on the rocks etc. I feel they blend in well and have nice animation.
