Here's a look at the Nobades I put together for the Portsmouth event …


Many are renegades from a large DBM Axumite army which is breaking down into a Rome's Desert Frontier collection of armies for V3 DBA.


There are more pictures on Ancients on the Move/Nobades and I will be posting a report on this year's English DBA Open shortly.

Fun army, though …

What a marvelous looking army and camp.
It seems the shields have been pilfered from a variety of battlefields.
Nice touch.

Sure enough, no baddies.

Very nice looking army. I feel a lot of less "regular" armies benefit from a more eclectic style.

With a name sounding like "The nobodies" it's been on my list. Thanks for the inspiration.

Lol … a name to conjure with … wink

I have also heard it shortened to 'Nobs' …

Thanks for all the positive comments … I see these guys as desert raiders … armed with a fair amount of plundered equipment. We don't really have much to go on so that's just my guess.

It is a nice army play and has a good range of historical opponents including Romans and Pre-Islamic Arabs. Wargames on the fringe of empire.

Beautiful figures. Nice use of an edifice as a camp.
