SYRACUSANS (410-210 BC)
Here are images of my DBA Syracusan army, which I am likely to
MOAB 2005. It depicts Agathokles' army assembled for the invasion
of Carthaginian territory. All of the figures are by Xyston.
Agathokles (Sp/Gen or Cv/Gen)
Syracusan Hoplites (4Sp)
The backbone of the Syracusan army.
Syracusan Horse (3Cv)
Every hoplite army needs some cavalry.
I couldn’t wait for Xyston to bring out their Tarantines
so I used their Paionian Cavalry pack instead.
The ever useful Psiloi.
Archimedes’ Death Ray (Art)
This is a tongue firmly in cheek
rendering of the Syracusan artillery. It is
meant to represent the Archimedean "death ray". I know
that it is an anachronism but I couldn't help myself. This element will
form part of the baggage for my DBM Syracusan
