I built up a set of Biblical Era armies for a Trojan War campaign (approx. 1250BC)
Mycenaean - using figures cast by Hall of Ancient Warriors Trojan - Essex New Kingdom Egyptian (a list) - Peter Pig (mostly - but with some Essex Chariots) Babylonian - Essex Syro Canaanite - Hall of Ancient Warriors Ugaritic - mix of anything Early Hebrew - some Venexia but Essex and others thrown in Early Libyan - a mix of Chariot, Essex and Corvus Belli Sea Peoples - Hall of Ancient Warriors Assyrian - Essex Bedouin (Midianite) a mix of ranges Makkan - a mix of ranges Hittite - Essex
I can recommend the Chariot (aka Magister Militum) range for biblical figures - these ones stand out in my Libyan army and likewise the Nubians that I am currently building include a good sized batch from that range. The command figures are exquisite.
The Nubians are going to be part of a campaign set for "The Great Revolt" (2250BC) and I have already built up a Sumerian army which as a core of figures from Magister Militum padded out with Eureka straddle cars and some Essex archers.
Because it has my troops all over it. THAT makes it MINE!!!!
PAWS has forced me out of my comfort zone (Classical and Medieval) to look at Biblical armies and I can’t say I really love any of them. That said I do like the look of Sea People / Early Philistine Armies as well as the “Neo” Armies.
Anyway I just added LCh, 7 Hd and slingers to my Chariot Classical Indians to bring them up to Purple compliant Vedic and pre-Vedic Armies. Not the perfect figures for this period but good enough and now competition ready. Next step is to add the 3D printed Ganesh (that Redrob sent me - thanks mate) and a LCh with a blue charioteer (Krishna) to be the God and Hero in s HOTT Army.
