Peloponnesian War in DBA

  • After running shy of Ancients for about twenty years, I decided to get back into DBA with pocket-sized armies. I'm no stranger to painting 6mm (WW2, mostly), but it's been a long time since I tried anything other than tanks, and I found that my eyes are damn near unequal to the task. I went for 60mm by 30mm bases with approx 36 figures to the base, in three ranks (for solid infantry) - I'm building up forces for a Peloponnesian War campaign, and I'm already tired of painting hoplite shields) with a few stragglers to the rear to suggest a bit of raggedness to the phalanx. I would post pics, but I have no idea how!  
  • Anyway, if any other of you good people have any ideas or inspiration about painting Baccus hoplite elements. I would be very grateful to hear your input. I'm working on a 3" by 3" battlefield for this size of element. I will post pics (as soon as I figure out how.)

I have done some late hoplites for the macedon/greek-persian-war

https://www.baccus6mm.com/forum/PaintingandModelling/Gallery/496-1-anancientpileoflead/

The symbols on the Hoplon-shields are done with baccus transfers - to paint them myself would have driven me crazy...

To post pics: load them to a free server (I use www.abload.de, but that is a site in german), there you usually get various links to your pictures. Use something like 'direct link', and that you can put in here (there is a small picture-symbol on top of the edit field).

Wow! some amazing pictures there. I am awaiting a Roman Polybian army to prepare for my TtS Hellenistic project.

Those figures are indeed amazing - inspirational stuff! As soon as I figure out how to post a picture, I'll put up a few of my own. I've had three battles so far between Greeks and Early Achaemenid Persians, and while there was quite a rugged battle in two of the three encounters, the end result was always the same - a Persian Rout. I am thinking of modifying the rules a little to give elite troops such as the Immortals (and the Spartan homoioi (Am I right with that - it's been a while?) -  a +1 advantage in CC.) Be interesting if any of you guys thought of doing the same...

Peter, you really should make it easier to post images on this forum...
