Good stuff, much appreciate highlighting the Angus McBride print as well.  Admire his artwork.  Never tire seeing Mr. Bistulfi work.

Hafer Assyrians 30 mm

For some time I have had the Assyrian siege tower on my want list for its supreme goofiness.  I believe it is a direct interepetation from a relief.  It illustrates the science of city taking as practiced by Ancient Assyria.

Hafer figures seem to all be beautifully engraved and cast such that they are a pleasure to paint.

Also per normal Gianpolo Bistulfi has an excellent painted example.
