This is my (early) Hittite Empire Army - (Sublist "a").
All figures are Caesar 008 "Hittite Warriors," except the light Chariots, which are from Nexus (Atlantic re-issue) "Egyptian Cavalry" (in fact Chariotry).

The Hittite King (1x LCh-Gen)

The Hittite commander, maybe the King (Labarna) himself.
Still using the LCh. The heavier type (Kadesh) not yet introduced in sublist "a".



The Chariot Force (3x LCh)

These represent 2-men-chariots of the early empire, later a 3rd warrior would be added (Sublist "b" HCh). Allies / vassals would continue to use light Chariots (LCh in sublist "b").

Unfortunately the Nexus chariot model has only space for a single warrior - so the noble charioteers (LCh) have to drive themselves...



The Warriors (6x 3Sp)

The Hittite main battle line. Based 4 per stand just for better aspect.
For game purposes they count as normal 3Sp.

The Skirmishers (1-2x 2Ps)

Archers

The Levy (0-1x 7Hd)

Conscripts or contingents from vassal kingdoms (Arzawa etc.)
