Peleset Chariots #1

 

This is my first pair of Pelset Chariots, raised to support the invasion of Egypt and the Middle East by the Sea Peoples.


Figures by Newline Designs once again. The crew figures actually fit in the cabs fairly easily. 


The reins were made with painted dental tape once again. 


Look out, Ramses!

  1. The reins done with the dental tape👍. Very nice touch and new line cab looks just right with not too quite of a squeeze for the figures. Very nice.

    1. Glad you like them. I have used paper tape for reins as well, but the wide dental floss is easier to come by and stronger.

    1. Thanks, Gary. They are a bit of a nuisance to do, but the end result seems worth it.

  4. Great work and nice that the figures fit the cab pretty easily, which is not often the case:(. The reins really add to the dynamism of the chariots:).

    1. These figures fit the cab much better than most manufactures, perhaps because the cab is wide and the Newline figures are fairly slender.

  5. Nice work Peter, and another vote in favour of the reins. They really do make a difference.

    1. Thank you, Lawrence. The reigns are a pain that lets chariots thunder across the plain! :-)

    1. I enjoy doing the basing for Chariot era armies - mostly sand and talus, with tufts and the occasional boulder strewn in.

  8. Really nice chariots! As mentioned above, the reins are the icing on the cake 👍.

    1. The Phlistines/Peleset are pretty fun to paint, despite their trashing in the Bible!

    1. LOL, Jon, we know how little it takes to do that! Guilty as charged myself, of course.

      Seriously, with Assyrians, Hittites, and Assyrians already in your collection, the Sea Peoples are a natural candidate for "project creep"!

    2. Very true! Not much of a challenge, really, is it? I have two units of Sea Peoples mustered already. Perhaps, I should consider venturing out from the shallow end of the pool? Still plenty of Assyrians/Hittites/Egyptians left to paint AND I have yet to begin Sumerians.

    3. That third in my post above of course should have been Egyptians...

      I must confess to having been fascinated by Ancient Egypt as a boy, and among the great many careers I considered, Egyptology/Archaeology was one of them!

      It would be easy to add some4 more SDa Peoples from Old Glory, Foundry, and NewLine next year.

      Then there are Libyans - I have another 30 or so of them to add to the collection, too! Sumerians are a bit too far back for me, though!

  11. The only thing missing is a big cloud of dust. Well done, Peter!

    1. Thanks, John. The dust cloud is easily provided up by such as these traversing the dry lands!
