II/3a Classical Indian 500 BC – 178 AD

15mm Essex Miniatures

DBA 3.0  Army Composition - 15 elements

1xEl (Gen), 2xEl, 2x(LCh or HCh), 2x3Cv, 1x4Ax, 3x4Lb, 1x7Hd or 1x2Ps

This DBA Army repersents warrior king Porus who unsuccessfully fought against Alexander the Great in the Battle of the Hydaspes (326 BC) modern day Pakistan. In the aftermath, an impressed Alexander not only reinstated Porus as his satrap but also granted him dominion over lands to the south-east extending as far as the Hyphasis. Porus died sometime between 321 and 315 BC

Umm..hmm.,,some of the photos turned out a little blurry/fuzzy,,,,,sorry about that guys!

28mm Macedonian Successors

48 painted 28mm Crusader Miniatures Macedonian Successors pike units. Sheild transfers by Little big man studios and wire plikes by North Star. The minis are mounted on 40mm x 40mm Litko plywood bases. I am planning using 5 inch hexes (credit goes to "Cyrus" Mike (at for his recommendation) 5 inch hexes are a perfect size to fit units in plus enough room to place any markers,generals etc. depending which wargaming rules sets are used. 

My intentions are to play CCA (commands colors ancients) game system. I'm not sure about cavalry, should I base 2 figures on 3 single 40mm x 50mm/60mm to create (3 strength) 6 figure cavalry units?  Currently working on more heavy inafantry,light infantry etc...and draw up the 5 inch hex gaming map! or I simply travel 4 hour drive to Jonathan's place at Spokane to play battles on his hexes table :o)

 more later, Thanks Guys!
