Whats in the Box ? Lets find out :
The Hittite Empire hails from the area known as Anatolia - modern day Turkey. Quite a power in their time, as explained by this excellent video series here :
As a biblical era DBA army, this is another one that is very Chariot strong. Lots of light Chariots, and a couple of Heavy Chariots, including General element.
Did I mention I like Chariots ?
Anyway, whats in the box ? Lets have a peek.
|According to the DBA list - mostly chariots, with a few light foot elements,and some Auxillia. I am pretty sure all the figures in this lot are Essex.
|General element in Heavy Chariot ... conquering the Ancient World. Looks to have Bronze chainmail of some type.
|More heavy chariots (3 crew)
|A fast group of light chariots (2 crew)
|Skirmisher screen - Psiloi
|I guess these are spear or Auxillia. Not sure ....
|Ah - the Royal Guard .. Auxillia.
|Another Chariot shot. Gotta love Chariots.
|The whole Hittite army arrayed for battle. That is a LOT of Chariots.
Reading up more on the Hittites, I find that they had Winged Lions to guard their city gates !
Another HoTT expansion in the works then .....
