Imrie/Risley 54mm Assyrian Archer

"Ah, Assyria, the rod of my anger; the staff in their hands is my fury!" - Isaiah 10:5.  Another old 54mm figure that has been repainted - this one an Imrie/Risley Assyrian archer. The figure was repainted, but the horse was left with most of its original paint and only given highlights. The horse's mane and tail weren't even highlighted with dry-brushing - guess I've learned a bit with 28mm figures.
The figure was modified a bit by having the original scale armor cut with a knife to look more like lamellar armor.
The pteruges were made from putty, as the original figure lacked these.
The helmet has had the bare metal polished and coated with a protective finish.
I'm glad I kept this figure for all these years. Maranatha!
