15mm Trojan Wars Chariots
Some more of my underused Trojan Wars figures. In this post we have some of the many chariots for both sides. The first four photos are the Achaean chariots, which are Essex figures and unfortunately not painted by me, I bought them on ebay several years ago for a bargin price 12 chariots for £38, the seller was rather gutted at the small price I paid for them, I on the other hand was quite chuffed.
The next four photo's are some of the many Trojan chariots in my collection. Some are my work and some are once again from ebay. The figures are a mixed bag of Essex and Chariot miniatures. For the Trojan army as a whole of used many different makes of figures to try and differentiate them from the Greeks. I did read that it's believed the city of Troy was closely allied to and possibly a part of the Hittite Empire, so I've used lots of Hittite figures for Trojans as well as the Mycenaean Greek figures. Some of these can be seen in the pictures below.
