With he addition of the Hittite and Sea peoples troops from Bill McHugh’s collection came the inevitable desire to expand them to full armies on a footing similar to my existing Egyptians and Assyrians.
Both armies were especially light on missile troops, so when I discovered that the Foundry range included Peleset (Philistine) archers, I took advantage of their annual Holiday sale to acquire some.
The Command figures are from Newline designs – thank their January sale for them!
They were based in my usual style for near Eastern ancient armies.
Quite a colorful lot; hopefully they can shoot, too!
This is the last of what I felt were the still interesting articles from the one issue revival of Jack’s Wargames Digest. Interestingly, there is current thread on The Miniatures Page about when the respondents first played in a wargames campaign. In my case that was 1970, with quite a few more after that. Not surprisingly, Jack and the Old Guard had me beat by over a decade!
All this reminds me that I have to prod my own country in the current slow motion, Covid inhibited campaign, Orbajosa, at least a little bit out of its torpor!
