Hittite Chariots

 






Here are two Hittite chariots that I've just finished painting. The figures are by Wargames Foundry. The back drop photo was taken in Turkey in 2011 and is inside the reconstructed walls of Hattusa (the ancient Hittite capital, modern Bogazkale).

    1. Thanks Ray, the Hittites are one of my favourite Bronze Age armies. Visiting Hittite sites in Turkey in 2011 really brings it to life.

  6. Those are great, having just finished a couple myself great to compare. Although how you get three figures in some of these is beyond me ;-)
    Cheers

    1. Thanks Stu, they’re fun to paint. I have quite a few of the Warlord/Cutting Edge ones to do, the three crew chariots only seemed to have been used at Kadesh, most would be two crew.
