Etruscan Chariot

 




Here's an Etruscan chariot that I've just finished painting. The figures are from Gorgon Studios and are Lars Porsenna, the Etruscan king with a chariot driver and a second class spearman. Shield transfers are by LBM. The bronze panels on the chariot are based on the famous Etruscan chariot from Monteleone di Spoleto which dates to c. 530 BC and which can be seen in the Metropolitan Museum of Art:

  2. Beautifully painted Etruscan chariot, Mike! I've eyed this model since it came out, but for some reason have yet to pick one up. Seeing yours is making me think about finally getting one.
