15mm Fields of Glory Alexandrian Macedonian 600 Points WIP

Dear readers,

first happy new year to all of you!
The start of 2012 will make my FoG Alexandrian Macedonian army. The army will be 600 points big and upgraded to 800 later.

The current list so far:

CiC - Inspired Commander: 80pts
SC - 2x Troop Commander: 70pts
Agema - 4x Elite, Armoured, Drilled Cavalry - Lancer, Swordsmen: 80pts
Thracian LH - 4x Average, Unprotected, Undrilled L.Horse - Javelin, L.Spear: 28pts
Prodromoi - 4x Average, Unprotected, Drilled Light Horse - Lancer, Swordsmen: 36pts
Hypaspists - 6x Superior, Protected, Drilled Medium Foot - Offensive Spearmen: 60pts
Foot Companions - 8x Average, Protected, Drilled Heavy Foot - Pikemen: 48pts
Foot Companions - 8x Average, Protected, Drilled Heavy Foot - Pikemen: 48pts
Foot Companions - 8x Average, Protected, Drilled Heavy Foot - Pikemen: 48pts
Agrianian Javmen - 6x Superior,Unprotected,Undrilled L.Foot-Javelins,L.Spear: 30pts
Cretan Archers - 6x Superior, Unprotected, Drilled Light Foot - Bow: 36pts
Thracian Peltasts - 6x Average, Protected, Undrilled Medium Foot - H.Weapons: 42pts

I have tested this list in a game versus Ancient Indian and the composition convinced me.

Painted are:
6 Bases Thracians --> BG done
2 Bases Cretan Archers --> BG 1/3 done
2 Bases Prodomoi --> BG 1/2 done
3 Bases Thracian L. Horse --> BG 3/4 done

An overview:


To complete such a huge project is a difficult business for me. I use a cheat in order to bear down my weaker self. I always paint "small" DBA forces of twelve elements which are done very fast and without loosing my "painting mood". Most of the painted element's will find a place in the FoG army. That's how I cheat myself :)

So stay tuned for the following progress!

I hope you like it. Comments, hints and critics are welcome too :)

Good luck with the plan! I like your cheat method. Mine is the opposite - do as many of one type as I can all at once and then put down the brushes for a month or two until I recover :)

Cheers,
Aaron

Thanks for comments.

@ Prufrock

Your method is as well as mine but you have the advantage of having a lot of bases more done :)
