Great Sumerian Revolt 15mm DBA Army

Recently finished an Early Sumerian DBA army - a Xmas present from Andy - from the lovely Museum Miniatures 'Z' range.  This is the first army list in the DBA Book, representing the northern coalition army of the 'Great Revolt' of Sumer against Akkad in 2250BC, led by Ipkhur-Kishi of Kish.  I particularly like the proto-chariot 'battle cars' and 'straddle cars' drawn by asses rather than horses (which equate to knights and cavalry in DBA terms).  The figures are painted in acrylics and gloss varnished.  The baggage element is scratch-built.
