Sumerian Chariots in 6mm

Remember back in 2005, when I promised pictures of those Sumerian chariot stands in 6mm?

With the Kingdom of Jerusalem force coming to an end (seperate update soon) I was looking around the lead mountain and found an old box of 28mm Victrix waiting to be made up.

So I'm on with a 1:20 allied legion, 32 Velites, 64 Hastati, 64 Principles, 32 Triari and 24 Cavalry.

A little Unboxing and project plan video as well.

You will do your usual smashing job of it I'm sure!

They look very nice.

Interesting that you chose to paint plastic to reduce your "lead" mountain! :)

As an aside, I chose to use Aventine Estruscans for my allies.

Many thanks,

Marcus lol, I think my "lead" pile now has a lot of plastic in it these days.

The Argentine figures are gorgeous, I got a Unit of Carthage Cavalry from them last month and will be getting my Italian Cavalry from them. But with the Victrix boys coming in at 50p each compared to Aventines £1.20 GBP over 200 figures that's £140.00 GBP I can spend on other stuff.

Yes, price point matters. I have been finding that plastic is not as durable as metal. So perhaps the extra cost is worth it? Considering that the biggest cost is my time painting the figure.

Haven't had any problems with plastics personally, but most of my stuff only travels about 6 feet from cupboard to table.

I still can't get used to picking a base of 8 figures up with no weight though !

Any specific issue you've found ?
