Denyen, Ekwesh, Lukka, Peleset, Teresh, Sheklesh, Sherden, Teresh, Tjekker, and Weshwesh, collectively known as "Sea Peoples" are all names found in ancient Egyptian sources that talks about raids and attacks by these previously unknown invaders. Although in these inscriptions there are clues and references that generated many theories, the origins of the Sea Peoples are undocumented. They remain unidentified in the eyes of most modern scholars, and hypotheses regarding the origin of the various groups are the source of much speculation and debate. Existing theories propose that some of them were Aegean tribes, raiders from Central Europe, scattered soldiers who turned to piracy or became refugees, or migrants linked to natural disasters such as earthquakes or climatic shifts. One thing is certain however: they were ferocious fighters! The Egyptian sorces talk of "the unruly Sherden whom no one had ever known how to combat, they came boldly sailing in their warships from the midst of the sea, none being able to withstand them." The Hittite Empire collapsed under their onslaught. Ugarit was destroyed. Egypt repulsed one assault by Libyans with massive Sea Peoples assistance in 1179 BC. A second invasion from Syria in 1176 was only repulsed by an extreme national effort.
Thereafter the Sea Peoples confederacy appears to have dispersed to their homelands, or settled in and were quickly absorbed by the local culture.
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!
