Posted 14 May 2007
Figures are Essex, QRF: Feudal Castings, Museum Miniatures, and Outpost Miniatures. Painting by Chris.
Realistic Troops of the DBA Army (DBA II/68b)
DBA. II/68b. Pictish. 500AD-846AD
Official:1x3CV or 3Sp (Gen), 2x2LH, 6x3Sp, 3x2Ps; Littoral
Chris has the entire DBA army, with all options, although the army he fielded on the Big Day had more HOTT to it.
Pict DBA Army
1 x 3Cv (Gen) (Riders) - Mounted General
The man himself. This is the guy Chris fielded.
1 x 4Sp (Gen) (Spears) - Foot General
Just in case
Pict Standby General
2 x 2LH (Riders) - Cavalry
Pictish Nobles at their drunken best (check out the guy on the right).
6 x 3Sp (Spears) - Spearmen
Chris decided 3 figures (3Sp) was too few and went for 4 figures per base (4Sp).
3 x 2Ps (Shooters) - Archers or Crossbowmen
Ooops, bases were too big (40x30mm not 40x20mm)
Camp / Stronghold
A stone circle, of course. In this case a Druidess is using the power of the stones to de-ensorcel a colleague (the chicken in the middle).

Fantastical Elements for HOTT
Chris wanted it all and he got it ...
Spears: If 6 isn't enough try 8
Riders: If 2 isn't enough try 3
Shooters: How about 8 of them
Warband: Naked Fanatics anyone?
Sneakers: Sheep russlers
God: The Moragan
And he fielded her too
Chris hand crafted these
