III/63b Ghaznavid

1002 AD - 1186 AD

DBA 2.2


15mm Essex Miniatures


Army Composition: (Gen) 1 x 3Cv or El, 1 x El, 3 x 3Cv, 1 x 2Lh, 2 x 4Sp or 4Bw, 1 x 4Ax or 2Lh or El. 1 x 3Bd or 2Ps, 2 x 3Bw.


Here are my Ghaznai (Modern Day Afghanistan) Army. There are lots of options to pick from the DBA army list to create a crack fighting force. The Elephants are really the main punching arm to break through, if lucky with die rolls your opponents center battle line :oP

Sultan as 3Cv


Afghan Irregular's (Light Infantry)
