DBA 15mm Thracians I/48

I did it! Yesterday i made the last stand ready for battle. But cut to the case here are the pics:

The army consists of:

1x3 Cavalry (General)
3x2 Light horse (i took them as Scythian ally)
6x3 Auxilia (Warriors)
2x2 Psiloi

The Auxilia in combat formation.

Second rank Auxilias.

The Scythian ally.

The Generals element: The King of the Thracians with battlestandart and his young greek influenced sons.

Cloaks stitchery.

The Baggage elements. For play i just need one but i had so much civilians that i did a second one. Both are made "generic", without specific symbols, so i can use them for several armies. I especially like the small waterfall which is made of wad, a translucent plastic and varnish.

All army miniatures are from Xyston Miniatures, baggage miniatures are from Xyston Miniatures and Corvus Belli.

Hope you like it. Comments, hints and critics are welcome :)

I really like your figure basing. What materials and techniques did you use?

Hey Cisza,
thanks for comment. I did a tutorial, which can be found here:

Second part (with materials) will be published in two weeks or so. I need to take some pics for finishing the second part.

I hope the first part is understandable and deliver a first insight into my basing technique.

superb the detail on cloaks and shields is stunning, I also have some thracians to paint but I will take up some LBM decals for good style

Thanks a lot. Glad that you like them. It is always advisable to take LBM decals! They are awesome!

They a rather good. Excellent detail and basing! Look forward to seeing more.

FYI I can't see comments in the main blog. The font and background colour seem to be the same?



Figurenschieber hat gesagt…

Dear Andy,

thanks for kind comment. That you can't see the comments is a problem of design! I know this problem and changed the backround and comment colour several times but nothing changed. I am sorry for that. If you want to read the comments please mark the text with your left mouse button. Then the comments should be readable... i hope.

If you want to save your template and email it to me I can have a look and see what's wrong?

Figurenschieber hat gesagt…

Thanks. How&where can i save my template?

Andy McMaster hat gesagt…

In the dashboard for your blog, under Design there should be a tab to Edit HTML. At the top of that section is a place to Backup/restore template. Yiu should be able to Download template from there. Email me the file: belisarius2006 AT gmail DOT com.
