A Lull

Alas, life is interferring with hobbies again so not much time for gathering, plotting or painting.

I've been mulling how wrong it would be to scan in an image from Blandford's Warrior's and Weapons or Funcken's Arms & Uniforms since neither book is in print and I have had trouble finding web images of Phrygians to point people to, but someone else has already done it! So here we are see: http://www.scribd.com/doc/12721269/Laminas-BLANDFORD-Guerreros-y-Armas-3060-AC1559 particularly the Near East page with images 74,75,76.

I like the Funcken intreptation better, esp the helmet but they obviously use the same source, at least one of which I have seen a teeny picture of in a scan of an archeological article.
Not surprisngly, they look alot like the Garrison Phrygian spearmen from their Persian list......
