Cement assembly, paint required (cement and paint not included)

The last quarter of the 13th century BCE was a period of turmoil in the eastern Mediterranean. A number of previously unknown peoples entered the region from the West, putting pressure on the Hittite and Egyptian empires which helped end the former and severely tested the latter. To the Egyptians these were called the ‘Sea Peoples’, and very little is known about them today. Nevertheless they had an enormous impact on the region and are an important grouping when considering the history and gaming potential of this period.

Most of the figures are armed with swords, and a few have spears, but there are no bowmen – something the Sea Peoples seem to have lacked.

Once again Caesar’s sculpting is beyond reproach, with excellent anatomical detail and very good proportions. All the weapons and shields are a part of the figure so there is no assembly required, but the multi-piece mould has been used in some places to help preserve the lifelike poses without sacrificing detail. Once again we find no flash or extra plastic, so Caesar continue with their high standard.

The box tells us there are 42 figures inside but actually there are 43 - the 43rd is the Egyptian trumpeter seen in the final row. Clearly nothing to do with the Sea Peoples, he is instead an extra figure for the corresponding set of Ancient Egyptian Warriors.

This is a very good set of figures, and when used in conjunction with the other Sea Peoples sets (Sherden and Philistines) it means Caesar have covered this subject in considerable and impressive depth. Why the Egyptian is in this set rather than with his countrymen we do not know, but consider him a bonus in what should be a must-have set for any fan of this dramatic period in history.
