Assyrian King

This is a special figure of Caesar and the description on Plastic Soldier Review says the following about this figure: "an Assyrian king and looks to be based on a portrait of Ashurnasirpal II (ruled 883 to 859 BCE). He wears the polo crown and holds aloft his mace as symbol of his office". These figure comes as extra figure in a different set, by name this one: Ancient Egyptian Chariots

So I went looking on the internet to find a picture of this king, how I should paint him. And the result you can see below. Painted with acrylic paints (Games Workshop and Revell).







Hope you like him ;-)

And welcome to the following friends:

  6. The Assyrians came down like a wolf on the fold.

    From the PSR review at the link it looks like you have to get lucky to get the particular bonus figure you want.

    This happened with some of the sets I have been picking up also, from the other companies.
