FS: 1/72 Macedonian DBA armies

The Edmonton Wargame Group games at a local venue called The Warriors of Time. This is a private venue from which several local clubs rent space. The Warriors of Time provides eight 4x6' tables, access to large quantities of terrain and painting space at a low price. The venue was renovated in the summer of 2010 and, with a very wet spring, suffered some water damage in the summer of 2011.

The various clubs are raising money to fix the leak and replace the damaged flooring. As part of this, the Edmonton Wargame Group will be hosting a silent auction on December 6th. I am supplementing this auction by selling the following DBA army--all money raised by this sale goes to fixing the venue in order to keep it open.

This 1/72-scale army comprises 18 bases. It allows you to field all options of the following DBA 2.2 armies: II/12 (Alexandrian Macedonians), II/15 (Alexandrian Imperials) and II/18 a-e (Macedonian Early Successors, all options). All of the figures pictured here are included and I will bubble-wrap each base.

There are six bases of 4Pk, three with pikes lowered and three with pikes raised (to facilitate double-ranking). These are Zvezda figures. There are are also three mounted bases: one 2LH and two 3Cv/3Kn. I think these are Revell figures but I would not swear to it. There is also an elephant (made by HaT).

Rounding out the army is one Art base and two 2Ps bases, four 4Ax bases and one 4Sp unit. All of these are HaT figures. All figures have been primed white, painted with acrylics, washed and sealed. They come from a smoke- and pet-free home if that is of concern to you.

I'd like $85 (including shipping in Canada or the US). As I said, all monies to the club for renovations. If you wanted to add an element or two to further morph the army, I have some extra pieces and would be happy to do so at a nominal charge. Offers to bob.barnetson@shaw.ca.

Up next: I have a bunch of 1/72 British WW1 artillery for a HiTT army almost finished (just need to grass the bases). And I'm working on the first units of a 10mm AWI commission.

  2. Ah, excellent; thank you; I got these as a job lot so was not clear on the source.
