The chariot was a fundamental part of Assyrian armies for centuries, but by the 7th century BCE, the last of the Assyrian Empire, its use was in decline as the obvious advantages of horsemen meant the cavalry grew in importance. The model in this set is of a large chariot with four horses and four crew, and represents the final appearance of the Assyrian chariot, i.e. the 7th century BCE.

The four-man Assyrian chariot carried a driver, archer and two shield-bearers.

Our evidence for the appearance of chariots is a small number of carvings, from which it would be unwise to assume that we know how all such chariots would have looked.

The men are all heavily armoured, much like the heavy infantry, so this would be designated a ‘heavy’ chariot. Their costume and weaponry are fine, and they fit into the crowded cockpit area thanks to pegs on their feet that slot into holes on the chariot floor. There are several of these holes, apparently distributed fairly randomly, so the customer has some flexibility in arranging the figures, although of course by cutting off the pegs and gluing the feet the men can be put anywhere.

The usual high standard of sculpting from Caesar is on display here, with no flash and sharp well engineered pieces.
