These Close Fighters are those of the latter part of the 18th Dynasty and early 19th Dynasty when light armour began to appear for the regular infantry. Close Fighters dressed as these would have fought in armies of Tutankhamun and Seti I.
Hand weapons were a mixture of the older axes and the newly appearing solid bronze sickle sword.
It is still disputed what the stone reliefs and wall paintings represent in terms of the infantry's headgear: whether they wore platted wigs, head-cloths (perhaps over a helmet) or a bronze helmet. The figures are therefore dressed in a variety of such headgear.
Pack contains 8 Figures (nominally 2 of each type pictured, though variations may occur)
