Very interesting, thanks.

I hadn't been expecting so many oval shields – reminiscent of some Italian styles (funnily enough, I've just been putting similar shields on 15mm C14th Italian spearmen).

The Egyptian "chariot" is nice.

"Moses orders a massacre", heh. My how times have changed. Is this where the Michelangelo statue got its inspiration for the little "horns"? And is this the prototype for the wizard "Tim"?

Yes, Moses is sometimes shown with horns in medieval illustrations. The verb used once is that his face "projected". In modern translations this is often "shined", but a different Hebrew word is used for God shining his face on someone or a man using oil to make his face shine. If Moses' face projected light the English verb I would use is "beamed". Where "projected" is used in noun form in only one other use in the OT it is referring to a bull's horns. So Moses probably either had horns or very nasty warts or something (and therefore wore a veil).
