Achaean Slingers

The Achaeans used small units of poorly-trained Achaean Slingers as skirmishers. Alongside regular archers, they formed the long-range capabilities of the Achaean or Mycenaean army. The Achaean Slingers are a key component of the Mycenaean army list (which can be found on p.16 of the Army Lists: Biblical & Classical book).

The Achaean or Mycenaean Greeks of the early Aegean city-states were dominant in the region from the collapse of Minoan civilisation to the end of the Bronze Age. They, therefore, thrived alongside the Hittites and the New Kingdom Egyptians.

Set contains:

  • 8 assorted metal Achaean Slingers
