Egypt 002

Thomas Gunn Miniatures

The start of a mini series featuring the Ancient Egyptians in the time of Ramses, a Pharaoh who ruled Egypt around 1300 BC during what is now known as the 19th Dynasty. Ramses is still considered one of the most successful Pharaohs of his time and established Egyptian military control in parts of Canaan, Nubia and most spectacularly at Qadesh where he defeated the Hittite King Muwatallis despite being ambushed, Ramses rescued victory from the jaws of defeat and crushed the Hittites. During the early part of his reign Ramses also defeated the Sea People who were ravaging ships travelling to Egypt and plundering their cargoes.

These first four figures comprise a scene from this historic defeat where the King of the Sea People was executed along with other elite officials. However, his soldiers who had so impressed Ramses during the battle, were pressed into service with the Egyptian army where willing or executed along with their King.

Limited Edition of 150.
