Hmm, oddly enough I was thinking of doing an army of Chimu/Moche but gave up when I couldn't find any figure sources, so I'm glad to see someone's considering making them!

I do not regard myself as an expert on them in any way, but shouldn't the war clubs they carry be flared at the top (photo of a reconstruction at http://www.amarse.net/UPDATES09/32UP09.html, scroll down about 1/3rd of the way, contemporary picture in http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/ar ... 0310002220 and at http://library.doaks.org/exhibitions/wa ... ms/show/19, grave http://www.unique-southamerica-travel-e ... -Moche.jpg,).

That's about the limit I can help with!

Cheers

With some gratitude to Duncan Head for some valuable resource, we've re-tweeked some of these figures

So, padded armour variants

Presumably this is "dribbling" in the manner that Niagra Falls "trickles"? :D

Have you ever seen those little wooden tools for dispensing runny honey (they are the sort of thing you can buy in National Trust gift shops). The weapon he is wielding looks exactly like one of those. Perhaps he is part of the Mochito Catering Corps?
