The first box contains my four chariots, with varying degrees of damage, due to a lot of having to move my collections from one storage area to another (mostly for real-life reasons).
This project came about at a Wargames group I attended over fifteen years ago, whereon everyone picked a side in the Trojan Wars, a hero and had to make up a small force for it.
I can't remember which hero I was allocated and whether or not my forces ever saw action on the table either !

|Different rear view (bored yet ?)|
Here are all four of them:
|One crewman awol !|
|Still a bit of work to do here !|
|A few figures in various stages of completion|
I remembered storing them in a metal biscuit tin and after quick search (only slightly frantic) I found said tin. In case you're wondering why a tin, it's because a lot my figures are mounted on bases with a magnetic strip, these included !
Here's the photos:

|Swordsmen (yep I know all the technical 'Ancient' terms)|
|'Javelins' close up with blue check biscuit in the background|
|Musicians (we were using the "Warhammer Ancient Battles set of rules)|
|"Standard" bearers, some sort of fan and a bulls head|
|Supernumeraries, leaders, shield bearers etc.|
|Ladders, for the towers in the citadel of Troy I built.|
|A Casualty figure for the boxer rebellion (I do wonder where the others are.)|
|Obvious group shot (sans ladders and Boxer casualty)|
That's it then for this week and another army that may or may not have been used once and truly forgotten about. I have merely only dabbled in 'Ancients', but seemingly I do have a few.
