Title: Alexandria Revolt Project - Caesar civil wars
Post by: nervisfr on July 07, 2015, 03:39:42 PM
This Project is about Caesar civil wars in Egypt and his based on my Rome Project (http://leadadventureforum.com/index.php?topic=63629.0)

As there is few pictorials informations about the egyptian army during the alexandria war of Caesar,
i decide to get my own view about the egyptian troops :

so, here it is the first test of converted 28 mm figurines for this new Project

they are a cross over between a legionary and an egyptian soldier.

enjoy

Of these 2 bowmen , the left one is without any changes. The other one lost his quiver for a shield and his bow for a khepesh, the egyptian sword.
Now he looks like an officer or a gang leader.....

Pretty sure I have some sitting in the never-gonna-get-painted pile :) and yes, they were probably bought in just such a sale. It will be excellent if I get some novel use out of them after so many years of "storage"...

Nice work. Have you thought about using the plastic Mahdists from Perry. I'd think they have good conversion potential for this project?

Thank you mrtn.
i have them but i 'll finish before the pure egyptian ones.
 Then i'll add some civilians from my Rome Project and i'll see if need more typical ones.
Alexandria was a very cosmopolite city at the Caesar period so there was a lot of differents peoples living there.  o_o

The Rome Project is the main one.

This one is for fun and add some varieties into scenarios/game situations.

And for the pleasure to convert egyptians into late ptolemaic soldiers. o_o
