For our annual fathers day game this year we have returned to the biblical period and are fielding New Kingdom Egyptian vs Hittite, previously this match up (5 years ago?) saw some 96 chariots fielded in total by both sides, this years aim was to field 200 chariots – alas we did not manage that – we exceeded it by a good margin and we have 246 chariots on the table, with of course supporting infantry…

Hittite: Andy & James
NKE: Warren & Mike
Hittite: Andy, Warren & James
NKE: Andy, Warren & Mike
The main manufacturers of the figures are Newline Designs, Foundry and Old Glory.
