Re: Spartacus, was Re: [DBA] Interesting armies
- Very sweet!
I'm working on 3D printed 10mm right now, Marian Roman vs Spartacus. So far I
have 16Bd, 12Cv and 8Ps designed and awaiting printing...
The 16 (-20?) hordes will be a little more effort because I want some variety in
"figure" poses to properly express the horde-ish-ness.
When the parts arrive to replace my extruder tip and (hopefull) improve my
resolution, I may press to add some variety to all the elements...

- That was my intent on a few armies. I put together a full Early Imperial Roman (Principate) army for Field of Glory, and using the variety of 'extra' troops (mostly 2Ps, but some 2LH) I had wanted to find an army to add them to for DBA.
Presently, I have the following (my book is with a friend, so forgive me if I dont have the exact numbers/titles):
- Huns (11 2LH, 1 2LH/3CV General)
- Early Imperial Roman (x2 - for matched pairs)
- Late Medieval German (Landsknechts, the last Late Medieval German list I think)
- Middle/Late Imperial Roman (unassembled)
Considering a samurai or asian army, because I like the look. Doing the matched pairs thing seems like the best way to assemble a collection.
I have the following laying around:
8x 2PS (Javelins)
8x 2PS (Archers)
8x 2LH (Numidians and "Barbarian" Horse Archers)
Was thinking a gothic list would only require a few extra stands, and could work with the Romans? Not sure who I could pair the Huns against using what I have extra.
With the Samurai, what is a good list from 2.2?

Particularly with the imminent DBA 3.0 Lists, these two armies allow you to make a very diverse family of armies some very "Roman" looking, others with a very Gothic of Hunnic aspect. These two armies fought an extreme range of enemies from Picts to Persians. As an opponent, a generic Gothic army with a few interchangeable pieces can also morph into many barbarian armies: Vandals, Franks, Goths, Bavarians, you name it. Great deal of flexibility with this selection.
