As promised, here are the heavy troops of the Sumerian Army. These figures are described on the HaT website as being Ur Spearmen. That is Spearmen from the citystate of Ur. They are dressed in heavy leather capes, studded with bronze, and carry a spear. According to various sites and sources, they fought in a phalanx, so that is how I have set them up before taking each photo.
Here are the units that I have made. They range in size from 12 figures (and an officer) up to 18 figures (and officers).
Here are some pictures of each type of figure that make up the various units. I take these close-up pictures, in case someone wants to see the individual figures, and use them as templates for painting their own. Here are the spearmen:
The very observant, and i do mean really very observant, reader might have noticed a slight difference in colors of the helmets. Some I have painted brass, and then drybrushed them to a golden color, while others are bronze (most of them) and some are brass, without golden color. I´ll leave it to you to find out which are which.
Tomorrow, heavies, part 2. The Lagash Spearmen.
