I did get a rather large lot of Peter Laing Egyptians. I no have several units of archers for my Egyptian army. I also have enough to make a Nubian army.
I also have been toying with the idea of a chessboard with removable squares, where different pieces of landscape could be swopped out. I found some good sized wooden square tiles that would work well, so I ordered 90. My original plan was to use both sides, such as Battle Cry and Command & Colors does with their tiles. However, the idea of pulling up all the tiles to find the right pieces might not work as easily as I thought. So I have made a few river tiles and am working on some plowed field tiles. As the project is just starting, there is some experimentation going on right now.

|My new "chessboard" game board. I was originally going to paint the tiles to hide the wood grain. However, I think it give the feel of being plowed fields.|
|The board set up for it's first game. The are two hill tiles on the board. I believe I will paint the edges dark green so hopefully they will stand out more.|
