New Kingdom Egyptians 3

 

Nubian skirmishers


Egyptian archers


Sherden, Egyptian infantry command and Libyans



Here are a dozen bases of infantry for my 15mm New Kingdom Egyptians, that I've just finished painting. The figures are a mix of ranges with Chariot Miniatures, Essex Miniatures, Gladiator Games and Peter Pig. I still have another six bases to finish for both my Egyptians and Hittites, before I have enough painted 15mm figures for a Pacto sized Mortem et Gloriam (MeG) game. The MeG army lists have been updated with separate lists for each of the three formats, a massive amount of work with over 500 army lists! 

The fourth edition of L'Art de la Guerre rules is due to be released next week so that may be another option when I finally get my copy in the mail. I already have large 28mm New Kingdom Egyptian and Hittite armies but 15mm does have definite advantages and a much larger figure range. I quite fancy the Khurasan Gasgans to fight my Hittites but the expense and hassle of ordering from the US does put me off.

    1. Thanks Phil, the Nubians are very effective skirmishers in MeG, they count as skilled which gives them a dice upgrade over normal experienced.

    1. Thanks Dean, they’re nice figures and the 15mm is easier and quicker to set up than 28mm games.

    1. Thanks Jason, the NKE are a really fun and colourful army. I like some of these Bronze Age armies so much I have them in both 28mm and 15mm...
