Elamite Chariot

Here the Elamite Army for To The Strongest rules, slowly takes shape with addition of 1st Elamite chariot/kallapani cart. this is one of my early Army Painter jobs that was just needing base finished. This is from the 28mm Eureka range with 2 added donkeys. I perhaps should have modelled the yoke to fit over extra donkeys...too late now. This chariot is packed with bowmen. The reliefs show a driver with 3 crew but I do like the packed archers look. The debate is... did they fire from mobile carts or hop off to deliver massive bow fire. Of course both tactics are possible. I will have 3x units of 2 chariots and one unit will be the Foundry Assyrian carts (which can be heavy armed archers). The nobles (mentioned in text) will be Assyrian style heavy chariots as would be likely.

  5. Excellent work Colin, I thought with the Kallipani the carts were to make them more mobile and they mainly fought and fired dismounted?

  6. Mike not sure. Could imagine firing from carts that were less crowded.
