For those of you that don't know, DBA uses 15mm armies fighting on 2' x 2' battlefields. Each army has 12 units. Each army is based upon an actual historical force. You get command points based on a d6 roll each turn. Grouped units can move together, but you only get as many actions as you have pips on the die. I have only played a few games and need to get more in to fully grasp the rules. Tactics completely elude me at this point.
I found a cheap army at the Recruits convention in Lee's Summit, MO. It is II 18(a) Macedonian Early Successor - Antipatros. 15mm models paint up well in my opinion. There is some detail, but not so much that you have to spend days on each model. As always, my goal is a decent tabletop standard. These are not show pieces and won't win any painting competitions, but they look good on the table.
Below are my photos of the army.
