Having been rather light on Biblical armies, ADLG and its' easy-to-collect army size has allowed me to turbocharge this previously neglected part of my collection.

First up were the Myceneans, and then the NKE ended up being rebased as well. But now, finally, and after 30 years of collecting and gaming I now have an Assyrian army as well!

As with the Myceneans, my choice was to go with Museum figures. They are a little static in their poses and stylized, but for Biblical era I feel that this style works really well.

The Assyrians are a ruthlessly efficient army and so the regular poses of most of the men also feels right. Many of the colour choices were inspired by (but sadly not particularly closely copied from) the fantastic 28mm Foundry range, which have provided three Generals elements for this army as well.

The highlight is of course the Chariotry – which I've tarted up using a common or garden cheap printer and some Google-fu to search for "Assyrian Patterns", downloading and printing out some images to paste onto the walls of the Chariots to surprisingly good effect.

There's a full page of pictures of all of the figures, together with paint selection details (and links to eBay to find the paints) to browse now at link

Great inspiration Madaxeman. My Assyrians are a combination of Museum for the Guards and elites, with Lancashire and some Old glory for the bulk of the troops. I did not like the look of Old Glory spearmen and archers, Lancashire has wonderful cavalry and archers.
Your chariots are really jazzed up!
Thanks for posting.

Great work!

I've been painting and refurbishing some Assyrian and Babylonian chariots and have agonised over how to paint those huge slab panels.
YOU come along with your fancy technology and your overly large brain and, VOILA!

Curse you freakishly large hands and inadequate painting skills, curse you.

Very nice figures. The chariot cabs are outstanding.
