    These are some figures that I actually painted a year or two back, but I recently based them on larger unit bases. I like it, and I think this will be my standard basing scheme for my ancient units.

    Very nice painting.

    Just as a matter of interest, what size bases do you use, and what rules do you tend to use them for?

    Great unit. I like the base – I am a firm convert to big bases as they let you tell a story with your miniatures if you want, or really pack them in to really convey mass.

    Thanks, guys!

    Richard, those are 120mm x 80mm and the skirmisher bases are 120mm x 40mm.

    Very good painting and atmospheric larger bases – really do set the figures off well.  Good to see someone adding reins to their chariots!

    Thanks.  I have a feeling that large bases (with lots of figures) are becoming more popular generally.  To me, they make much more sense than individual basing.

    Adam, sorry for the late reply. Yes, the man with the harp is also Foundry.

    Lovely! Nice unit.

    I’m currently working on some Canaanite archers. I love the Foundry biblical range.

    They are excellent aren’t they? I had to drag myself away from them with what was left of my willpower when I was up there last week!  (Didn’t know then there was a harpist I didn’t have.. Curses!)

    Very nice job on those!

    I like the harpist too. He makes a nice change of pace from the usual trumpeters or drummers. I imagine his role in the unit is to just stay close to the king and sing calming, confidence-building songs about how wonderful the king is.

    Great work, thinking about doing another biblical army myself
