I've just finished an Early Carthaginian army for DBA. Mostly Xyston and Corvus Belli figures, with a few comparatively small Magister Militum ones thrown in. Writeup, with a link to the more detailed army page is here: link

A very smart army. Love the 'camp' vignette (but can't help feeling you might be jinxing yourself by depicting the general lighting his own funeral pyre! grin)…

Thanks

Phil
PS it is well worth following the link on the above page for more of the backstory

very nice… How did the Xyston figures look with your Corvus figures size wise? No issues?

Must Carthage be destroyed? If you raise a nice army like that, then expect the Romans to do just that…or die trying.

Nice looking figures!

@Yesthatphil: I look upon it as a 'pour encourager les autres' sort of thing ;)

@Dervel: From a distance they look fine. The Xyston figures are about a mm taller, but most of that is in the thickness of the base (and their helmets are a trifle pointier). A little styrene sheet underneath the CB figures would probably make it so the difference is not noticeable at all.
