Men of Thebes: DBA I/52(d)

The Hoplite Phalanx, in DBA terms that is 9x4Sp:

The Supporting Arms and General, 1x4Sp (Gen), 1x3Cv and 1x2Ps

All the above from Irregular Miniatures,  their Hellenistic/Greek range paint up really well and are one of my favourite Greeks figures to paint "en masse".

The above are for the desperate Thebes player in the Greeks in Peril 480BC campaign. To send "Earth and Water" (submission) to the Great King and be hated by the rest of Greece or be defiant? Eternal enmity with the rest of Greece or face total annihilation and be teh first Greek City State to go down?

Normal battlefield set-up: Central mass of 5 doubled up 4Sp (including General) with 3Cv and 2Ps to the flanks (2PS in cover, 3CV in good going) .

Hello Yorkie,

DBA armies are collectable and doable, get enough and you can progress from DBA to Big DBA, DBM, DBMM, FoG and Impetus armies
