I/21b Kassite and Later Babylonian

1595 BC - 747 BC

DBA 2.2

15mm Essex Miniatures
Army Composition: 1 x (Gen) HCh, 1 x HCh, 2 x LCh, 1 x 3Cv, 5 x 3Ax, 2 x 2Ps

Back to reality :o) painting 15's again.....anyway...  

This Later Babylonian Army is a tough one to command and control, the main strength of this Army are the Chariots (HCh - fight as Knights and LCh as Cavalry) the other (elements) troops, the Auxiliary, their main purpose/function is to really try and hold :o) the center if possible while the chariots attack opponents flanks or take a risk by placing the chariots in the center and charge!....

  4. Brilliant looking army! Detailing on the chariots is fantastic. If I did not recognize the Essex models, I would swear they were larger than 15s.
