The DBA Carthaginian army list has heavy Carthaginian Citizen Cavalry, and Numidian and Italian allied Light Horse. Again these are Essex Miniatures. Elephants up next...
Andy bought me lots of Carthaginians for my last birthday so I'm going to start by painting a DBA army and build out from there. These are Citizen spearmen (North African hoplites) and light infantry (with rather fine mohican haircuts...). The figures are by Essex Miniatures.

For Andy's Christmas present this year I painted him an Ancient German DBA army to take on his Romans. In DBA the General can either be Cavalry or Warband. The rest of the army is Warband apart from the single element of Archers which count as Psiloi. The figures are by Essex and the huts are by Baueda.
Finally got round to painting an Ancient Spanish General to complete a DBA army. The troops are by Corvus Belli miniatures, the General and his escort by Xyston.

I recently finished painting the additional elements necessary to complete a later Persian DBA army with all the variant options. The figures are Xyston miniatures, apart from the mercenary Greek hoplites which are AB miniatures.
|Kardakes Spearmen (Auxilia)|
|The baggage - a Persian camel train|
|The heavy cavalry|
|The general and his escort - at some point I'll get hold of Darius in his chariot, but until then this model can represent a regional Satrap|
|Scythed chariot with armoured driver|
|Mercenary Greek hoplites in Persian service|
|The whole army|
