Army Composition: (14 elements)
1 x (General) 3Kn, 1 x 3Kn, 1 x 2Lh, 4 x 4Pk, 2 x 4Bd or 4Ax, 1 x El, 1 x 4Ax, 1 x 2Ps
Historical Enemies: Early Libyan, Kyrenean Greek, Meroitic Kushite, Seleucid and Marian Romans.
Historical Notes: coming soon...
This Army basically fought against the Marian Romans and Seleucid Empire and other minor powers. Typical Hellenistic Army during the 166 BC - 54 BC time frame, with Pikemen/Blades and Elephant to hold the center supported with a very tiny contingent of light infantry.
The Heavy and Light horse cavalry units should be placed on the main battle line flanks. Placing the General in the center next to the Elephant will give a nasty punch :o) effect to the opposition....
I also found out under DBA 3.0 army list the Egyptian Blades are compulsory to this army and only one , mercenary Thracian, Auxilia element is allowed to be used... not to worry.. anyway....
um :o) my apologies for so many photos (all 35 of them) the miniatures wouldn't stand still to have their photos taken.... cheers ;oP
