Fired up by the ADLG game on Thursday, I decided to get some DBA armies out over the weekend. I had a look through my blog and realised that my Roman desert frontier armies hadn't seem the light of day for five years, so I gave a couple of them an airing.
First up were the Parthians, who were attacking an Early Pre-Islamic Arab Nomad army. I selected the armies at random; where there was a choice of elements for a slot I diced for each one (within the limits of my figure collection). This gave the following armies:
Parthians: 1 x 4Kn General, 2 x 4Kn, 9 x LH
Arabs: 1 x Cv General, 1 x LH, 1 x LCm, 2 x Cm, 4 x 4Bd, 2 x 4Bw, 1 x Ps
The Arabs placed a couple of large areas of sand-dunes to slow the Parthian cavalry but allow their own camels free-reign. The Parthians elected to attack out of the dunes, hoping to get deployed before the Arabs could exploit their advantage.
