28mm City of Tyre


This is the City of Tyre made by Philip Viverito. I bought this a few years back and I use it in a variety of games, mostly in Wargods of Olympus and of course in a historical game. I plan on using the city mostly as any Middle Eastern city in ancient times. My major power (Fantasy) is Assyria. They turned out to be the major superpower instead of the Persians. So This city can be used in multiple ways such as an Assyrian City, a Phoenician city, the list goes on and on.


I plan to use this City of Tyre as multiple different cities. My 28mm Macedonia army, as well as my 28mm Spartan army will have many sieges against this city with multiple names and locations in many games. I will also use the city with my 28mm Egyptian army and 28mm Assyrian army as well. It can also be used in a Iraq modern war game setting. The city is very modular and can be rearranged in many numerous ways. It was well worth the money. This is the first of 3 cities I have bought from Philip Viverito.

I have a lot of Macedonians from Sgt Major Miniatures aka Vendel Miniatures to lay siege to this city soon.
