Well... yes and no. I do have quite a lot of Hittites already painted, but my existing troops didn't exactly line up with the DBA unit types. And besides, I painted them some years ago, and my painting skills have improved in the meantime. And it would be nice to have some chariot runners to help fill out the larger DBA-standard chariot bases. And, you know, I still have plenty of spare figures left over...
So to make a long story short, I spent January and into February painting an entire new army of Hittites!
The whole army arrayed
Hittite general in heavy chariot
A second heavy chariot (HCh)
Two light chariots (LCh)
Four Hittite infantry (3Pk)
Two light infantry (3Ax)
Two skirmishers (Ps)
After that, I started on some Egyptians of my own, so that I wouldn't have to be reliant on borrowing my dad's troops. After getting a few supply chain issues sorted out, these are now finished as well!

Egyptian army: rear view
Egyptian general in light chariot
Three more light chariots (LCh)
Three Egyptian infantry (4Bd)
Two Egyptian archers (4Bw)
Sherden guards (3/4Bd)
Libyan warriors (3Wb)
Nubian skirmishers (Ps)
Alas, while other people may have more time for painting while the coronavirus pandemic is ongoing, my painting desk has been converted into a temporary home office. So the next stage (infantry for the Syro-Canaanites and rebasing their chariots onto DBA-standard bases) may take a little longer than anticipated...
Your brother was the first to adopt DBA 3.0, but, between grad school and coronavirus issues, he’s the one who hasn’t added any figures for this upgrade yet...ReplyDelete
