...the sheen of their spears was like stars on the sea


I bought elements of a small Eureka/Irregular Assyrian army some years ago, and have recently revisited them, with a view to either completing the army and using it, or selling it on.  I'll post a few shots over the next week , in between the pikemen.

These are the guards.  I've replaced the standard with one from Foundry, and given them iron helmets with the characteristic bronze band.  Oh, and I re-did the spearheads!

They are certainly easier to use! The old ones could be impossible to read.

Excellent guard unit Simon! The Eureka Neo-Assyrians are a nice range.

"Alright you maggots, I want to see those cohorts polished until they gleam! In purple AND gold!"

"SIR YES SIR!!"

Very nice work there!

Beautiful work, Simon. I'm very fond of Assyrians (in miniature anyway), always wondered if they were far and away the most brutal civilization of their day or if they just documented it better.
