One of the most important sources of information related to the appearance of these various people is the funerary temple of Ramesses III in Medinet Habu (Ancient Thebes, on the west bank of Luxor). The reliefs of this temple described the battles between the Egyptian army under Ramesses III and the Sea People at the end of the New Kingdom Era at the beginning of the 12th century BC.
I had the chance to visit Luxor in 2007, and I took these pictures in Medinet Habu:
|These prisoners wear the typical helmet associated with the Peleset.|
|This relief gives us some evidence of the colors used to represent|
the Sea People in Egyptian art
The colors used to depict the Sea People clothes are mostly Blue (Light and Dark), Red and White, and you will find these colors on any wargamer's army. Since it is coherent with the picture above, I decided to use these colors too.
Here you are my interpretation: nothing original, but it is a nice army to paint.
Most minis by Caesar, except for the armoured chieftain by Hät.
