Two Armies Down...

...many more to go!

Good evening,

Here are the final touches completed on not one, but two DBA armies - I/52(f) Athenian 540-450 BC Early Hoplite Greek, and II/26 Later Rhoxolani Sarmatian, 310 BC-375 AD.

First the Sarmatians.

My two Sarmatian Psioloi...


...which gives me...


  • 1x3Kn (Gen),
  • 8x3Kn,
  • 1xLH or 1x3Kn,
  • 2x2Ps

Cool! After 13 odd years, these dudes are finally done. Well, 'cept for that elusive 1 Knight element that I'd like to add at some point with figures yet to be acquired.

Onto the second army finished today.

I bet I won't be saying that too often!

The Athenian Early Hoplite Greeks. Primarily Athenian, 'cause one box of Zvezda Early Hoplite Greeks will only give you enough Hoplites for 8 elements.

The light foot are now finished...


...to give me...


  • 1x4Sp (Gen),
  • 1x2LH,
  • 7x4Sp,
  • 1x[4]Ax,
  • 1x2Ps or 4Bw,
  • 1x2Ps

Cool!

Now to start on some Early Archamenid Persians...

Huzzah!

  5. Impressive looking force, Nick; thirteen years is nothing for me in the bigger picture of delayed gaming deployments... ;)

    1. Thanks John. You and me both - the Sarmatians in particular are pretty trick pony, so to speak - the Knights'll either break through together in short order, or get all carried away and chase off the enemy, get isolated and cut down one by one!

    1. Thanks Fran. When I started there were no such thing as 20mm plastic Sarmatians, hence all the conversions. 'Course today you can by whole boxes of them!
