How could I not mention new releases this month from Warlord Miniatures have what every army needs, that is if you like historical Assyrian forces. Warlord released Assyrian Qurubuti Cavalry for Hail Caesar, both spearmen and archers to lead your forces into battle.
The Qurubuti were the personal bodyguard of the king, or prince. They would be very well trained and likely veterans or members of Assyrian nobility. Heavily armoured in iron and bronze and riding a felt or leather barded horse, they would be a formidable opponent. The fully armoured horse only appeared towards the end of the Neo-Assyrian empire, most likely to protect the valuable mount against the new threat of the steppe horse archers.
Have a Great Battle!
