This period starts with Kamose's revolt against the Hyksos and ends with the death of Ramesses XI, at the end of whose reign Nubia had been lost, the remainder of the south had come under the control of the High Priests of Amun at Thebes, and the north was disputed by Libyan-influenced petty kings. New Kingdom Egyptian armies added massed chariotry to the already sophisticated infantry tactics of the Middle Kingdom. Nevertheless, in contrast to the Canaanites, the Egyptians continued to rely heavily on their infantry, although both Thutmose III at Megiddo and Ramesses II at Kadesh berate their foot for lack of discipline. Famous generals of this period include Rameses II (1279-1213BC) whose "victory" at Kadesh was somewhat over-rated,
Rameses III (1184-1153BC) who beat off invasions first by the Libyans and later by the Sea Peoples, and Thutmose III
Early New-Kingdom infantry are often shown running with an axe in the right hand, a spear in the left and a small shield
slung behind one shoulder. Later ones have larger shields and wear body armour. After about 1200BC, Libyan and
Sherden mercenaries were included and later Sea Peoples were often employed.
This range has been realized by Red Copper Miniatures, based on their own study and research before sculpting.
The handmade individual design and 3D printing technology allows them to develop their own characteristic style, versatile for 15mm and 28mm, with great detail and functionality, but without losing the personality of each model.
Red Copper Miniatures models combine respect for historical rigor and the freshness and epic of attractive designs, with new, varied, dynamic and unique poses.
We print them on demand with very high definition machines using our own blend of different resins to achieve superb detail and
plastic like material properties.
Red Copper Miniatures are LARGE 15mm that would mix well with Xyston and Legio Heroica (sometime referred to as 18mm).
If you prefer we can reduce them in size to "standard" 15mm to match our own or Essex miniatures!
Also available as 1:72 or 28mm on demand!
