First of them, the pezhetairoi (foot companions in ancient greek) who are the famous Macedonian pikemen, armed with sarissa (pikes).
I know I should paint 24 figures for a DBA army, here you are the first four :)
The picture below shows an hypaspist - the fourth needed to have an element of Sp for DBA (the first three are displayed here):
The Macedonian army also employed Greek mercenaries , as did their Persians enemies.
And last photo so far, a musician to give signals for the whole army.
Now back to the brushes ! I need:
- many more pikemen (20)
- more hoplites (4)
- light cavalry, Prodromoi (2)
- a foot general (1) and an escort
- Alexander himself
Hope you like them.
