From KentG: 15mm Mycenaean Army with a Trojan Horse (240 points)

Kent is going to finish the Challenge in style with an entirely new army, this one being a Mycenaean force based for DBA.

From Kent:

'Well here we are again, I think this could be the last entry on my part, but who knows. (I've heard this before... - ed)

This is a 15mm Black Hat Miniatures Mycenaean army done up for DBA -  great fun. After painting so many 28mm I decided why not try and paint these boys with the same three layer painting I use on the 28mm figures - seemed to work quite well. It was fun trying to work out the cow hide shields as i had never done them before but they worked out well in the end.'

Beautiful stuff Kent. I really like the work you did on the shields - top notch.

Love the Trojan Horse, but the head looks sort of avian to me. Maybe we've been duped all along and it was the 'Trojan Pterodactyl' that brought down Troy. Just sayin...

This force will give Kent 240 points (with a bit added for the great hand-painted shields). Well done Kent!

From RayR: 15mm Japanese Cavalry from the Russo-Japanese War (288 points)

Ray has a large entry in the pipeline and this, the cavalry, suitably serves as the vanguard. These four units represent regiments of Imperial Japanese cavalry from the Russo-Japanese War.

1st Regiment

All of these 15mm models are from Irregular Miniatures. 

4th Regiment 
12th Regiment

Finally, the Guards Cavalry

These four units will net Ray 288 points. Well done!
