I haven't seen any military ones that are even close. It would be a cool project to kitbash some. Civilian figures are pretty easy because most of the clothing consists of drapes and wraps that are tied or pinned closed.
Yes I meant the Old Assyrian Empire Kitbash would be a interesting idea, thanks for the link!
The closest I came to a bronze age figure was this figure Not very historical but has some realistic accessories like the headpiece and sword if it was bronze.
All of these cultures used light chariots at the time. Most of the chariot warriors wore knee length "sariams" made from scale armour. Some were made of bronze scales and others were made from leather (or rawhide). Leather seems to have been a lot more common. After the battle of Megiddo the Egyptians recorded the capture of two sariams made from bronze and two hundred made from leather. Tut's tomb had a very good example of leather scale armour until the Cairo museum's negligence destroyed it. These days there isn't much left of it. It was the oldest known example of leather armour anywhere in the world and it was completely intact when Carter found it.
I had the face 3D printed and stuck it onto a wooden shield made from popsicle sticks. The original Yetholm shield facing was made from bronze but there were similar shields made from hide so I painted this one to match.
I followed your advice and bought two decent 1/6 khopesh from Ebay. I only have to paint it a gold/bronze color.
Do you have any experience with silicone molds to make multiple items like that Yetholm shield? You could easily make a lot of them and sell one to me
I'm thinking of trying to duplicate some objects I made myself with a silicone mold, and I'm wondering what the best materials would be to achieve that.
