Warhammer Ancients Chariot Wars: Egyptian Light Infantry

 Made a little progress on painting up some of the Ancients slope of my lead mountain....a regiment of Egyptian light infantry armed with javelins and shields.
 In Warhammer Ancients, troops classed as light infantry can form up and fight as regular line troops or break ranks and engage the enemy as skirmishers.  I'm interested to see how that works out on the table top.
 As usual the figures are all from Ral Partha's 1990s line.

 It was a fun regiment to paint, perhaps in part because the figures don't have a lot of paraphernalia to have to pick out with the brush.  Skin, some simple clothing, weapon and shield.  That's it.  So they go pretty fast.
 Some of the individual troopers.
The trooper figures are all the same casting but I don't mind that too much.
"Advance!!"   What's next?  I have no idea yet.  Archers, maybe?  Or a chariot regiment?  Meh.  I'll know when I get there.
