I decided that I would present you with the army in stages, and then, hopefully make a picture of the whole army, when it´s complete. That may take some time though. The reason is that my wargames table doubles as a painting table, and at the moment it is a painting table. The 2nd reason is that I hate painting chariots. I don´t know why, and before I get completely burnt out on painting Sumerians, I have decided to allow myself a short break, painting some Iberians, before returning to the chariots.
All that said and done, here are the light troops of my Sumerian Army. First the slingers:
I have previously sent in a HaT contribution where these guys also appear. So if they seem familiar that is why. Not sure the green clothing is appropriate, but never the less, that is how i painted them. Here is a single figure in close-up.
Then come the Nim skirmishers. According to one of my sources Nim means flies in Sumerian, and they are named Nim because they are like flies: everywhere and many of them. I mixed them with the Gutians that also came in the box. To me they both look like skirmishers, and they are equiped much the same, so I thought, why not.
Here are the pictures of the 4 different units that make up these skirmishers (48 figures in total).
Here are a few close-ups of what on the HaT website are called the Nim skirmishers.
And finally, a few close-ups of the Gutians.
Tomorrow I hope to show off some more Sumerians. I think they will be the more heavily armed ones, or maybe the specialist troops.
