Any ideas where to get 25mm/28mm models for use in a baggage camp for DBM/FOG etc. for the Bronze Age period of the middle east: Sumerians/Hittites/Assyrians/Egyptians etc. Generic if possible to use for various armies such as pack animals/carts/tents/porters etc.

Foundry has pack mules and horses in 25/28mm.

This will get you amphora, earthen jars, leather tents (OK they are modeled on Roman ones but), a Hellenistic priest but he should be manageable.
Craft stores have beads that can be used as jars or vases, wooden bits that are usable

thanks for the replies though I knew of those items at baueda and foundry. Not sure that the Foundry carts and mules with equipment are right for this early period and the baueda seems to just be pots. Anyone know of any other stuff that might be suitable? What do other people use for baggage camps for this period?

I did up a camp using Baueda products as above, pack horses from Foundry and a few camels from Black Tree all around a well (can't remember the supplier.) Looks great and very generic.

Was watching "Planet Egypt" recently. The script and visual portrayal had Thutmoses III riding in an ox-drawn wagon (4 wheeled) on his way to the battle of Meggido (ca. 1450BC), with other such wagons in the column, and with many donkeys also being used to carry supplies. It seems like the Egyptian army chariots were carried disassembled in the carts/wagons, and the horses were led (maybe "carrying" light loads, can't say). The narrator noted the Egyptians did not have camels, IIRC.
