Hi all,

The mother in law just turned up with these figures in a box, anyone recognise what game they are from please? The box just said "Biblical 15mm":



Nosing round the net, I thought they might be from Holy Hack, but can't seem to find any good pictures of the figures for that game.

Failing identifying the game, and suggestions as to what game would be suitable?

Many thanks,

GC

Well, with "Biblical 15mm" I'm assuming they're just generic 15mm miniatures with a biblical theme, which, well, seems to be correct, judging by the pictures.

I don't think they're from any specific game, but you could use them with one of the available mini rulesets, you know, like WWII Micro Armour: The Game, only for armies around 500 bce.

I'm sure someone here knows a miniature wargame of that kind.

No idea as to the origin of the minis; but you could have an awesome setup for Circus Maximus with the chariots. cool

They look like some beautifully painted toy soldiers. Are they metal or plastic?

If metal, here's a handy list of all the metal 15mm ancients soldiers manufacturers:

Nice palm trees! They're probably from a different source.


Go to this site, http://www.freewargamesrules.co.uk/index.php?page=ancient, and read down the list to:

Ancient Foes, or Fast and Furious, or anything else that looks suitable to you.

They look like generic minis for use with just about any ancients minis rule set. I'd suggest DBA on merits of being well known and generally spoken well of.

Nice find, but how did they end up with your mother-in-law?

Thanks for all the replies. I believe from the weight they are all metal, but don't really know to be honest.

The mother in law got them at a charity shop; she's found many such bargains, including a £3,000 platinum watch for 50p once!

To be honest with you, I'm likely never to use them so was thinking about bunging them on ebay. Unless someone here wants to give them a loving home and is prepared to make a reasonable offer? I can take some better pictures if you are. In total there are:

- 23 sets of 4 figures to a base.
- 6 individual solo figures.
- 6 chariots.
- 4 palm trees.

They appear to be immaculate; I can't see any obvious damage to any figure.

I'm pretty sure you've got a New Kingdom Egyptian wargames army. I can see Egyptian bow, spear and axe men, Nubian spear and bow men mercenaries, and what are perhaps Sea-people mercenaries. One of your chariots appears to have a characteristically blue-crowned Pharoh. I could do better with clearer pictures, as no doubt would many in the wargames forums.


I suspect it's based for WRG 7th edition rules, though you could make 2 DBA armies (a very fine game) out of it.
