Looking good, and I do not want to run and fight against it I think!

I'm happy to see that your wife's decision is the same than mine, Iceman1964. :mrgreen:

Great looking Sumerian infantry. :thumbup:

First of all my apologies for such a long period without posting ..... I had a summer full of activities, just now I'm back to painting :-D

Here are the Umma's skirmishers, it's time now to work on the centre of the diorama, the Umma's war chariot with its donkeys... but they are modelled by Hat as "simple" horses, so some modification is needed !

Thank you Bluefalchion and Peter :-)

I have now completed the war chariot (except the connection between the donkeys and the bar, it will be made on the diorama to fit the ground irregularity).

The work was mainly to pass from Hat's horses to donkeys and to add the reins.
I really wonder how the drivers were capable to control the reins of four different animals while running on broken ground :shock:

Now all the figures are painted, let's move to the cork base :-D

Perfectly painted figures. I like the overall look and the combination of colours you used for them.
