Skirmishers Egyptain Style

Emerging from the lush greenery of the Nile onto the desert sands, a unit of Egyptian skirmishers precede the main force of the Pharaoh's army.
By their very nature, skirmishers, were light armed and armored troops, here with shield and javelin, designed for fast deployment and harassment duties.  When the main infantry force arrived the skirmishers would often retire to protect the flanks of the slower more heavily armored forces.
These metal, 25mm pieces are some of the 1970's, designed figures from Minifig.
