Chariots Égyptiens, 1/72 Figurines Nexus Atlantic 1802

The war chariot was introduced to Égypte by the Hyksos around 1650 av.Chr. Les Égyptiens recognized the combat value of the chariot, et they considerably improved it, making the véhicule lighter et more maneuverable. If necessary, a single man could carry a chariot on his shoulders. For nearly one thousand years charioteers formed the elite de l'armée égyptienne. The Pharao himself rode into battle on a war chariot. Nexus re-released les chariots égyptiens d'Atlantic which are popular avec joueurs de guerre et dioramistes alike. The box offers excellent value for money: six chariots et the selection of four different charioteers should be enough to raise an impressive force de cavalerie égyptienne pour jeux de guerre.

  • Useful wargaming poses. Ces figurines égyptiennes appear realistic et they will look nicely compatible when mounted on wargame infantry stands.
  • The painting examples on the box cover are an inspiration to miniature painters.
  • Compatible avec ESCI, et Italeri.
  • The figurines are exceptionally tall, especially considering the fact that peuples antiques were much shorter than we are today. Average figurine height varies, as it should, but even the shortest of these figurines turns out much too tall.
  • The chariot is too small to accomodate the typical crew of two men, le charioter et un archer. One of the figurines peut être convertie en charioter, et the figurine bases will have to be cut off to allow two figurines to fit into the chariot. Alternatively, a new chariot may be scratchbuilt from paper ou plastic card.
  • The wheel rims et spokes are much too thick, they make le chariot égyptien appear heavier than it actually was. Skilled modélistes may want to build lighter wheels from stretched sprue spokes et plastic card rims.
  • The horses are cast without bases, et it can be difficult to mount them on a wargame stand securely.
