Scale
Any scale can be used for this game. For standard game battles I suggest approximately 500-1500 men per stand. Chariots represent 50-100 vehicles and elephants represent 20-25 elephants. Scale these down accordingly for smaller engagements.

The Successors

These are the armies of the Macedonian Kingdoms controled by Alexander’s generals after his death. The lists cover the high point of Hellenistic Warfare. The armies are based upon those found in DBA 1.2 and Might of Arms. They have been modified based on research and gut instinct. This list is organized differently than other lists in AD6. Since the various Successor armies are quite similar, it made sense to have a master list of those units common in most successor armies and then have army notes that modify the main list. You will find the main army list noted first and then the specific army notes following the main list.
