Alexandrian Imperial DBA Army

Finally got round to posting these photos of a Macedonian army that I gave David as a birthday present in November 2017.  At his request, these form an 'Alexandrian Imperial' DBA army - representing the army of Alexander at the height of his power following his conquest of Persia.  The Macedonian troops wear more regular uniforms with some Eastern elements (for example, some of the pikemen now wear trousers).  The 15mm figures are by Xyston Miniatures, painted in acrylics and gloss varnished.

The complete DBA army with the variant options


  1. Very nice looking Phalangites and good to see the Persians making an outing. My next campaign is going to be the Pyrrhic Wars so plenty of pike action!
